    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Tampa FL Quest ninjutsu

    Found an intresting site for a Tampa quest center:http://www.tampaquestma.com/

    Outside of the BS history of this Hayes created system(http://www.tampaquestma.com/history.htm) and an instructor listed as being a blackbelt in 'Bushido' (http://www.tampaquestma.com/teachers.htm), it seems to me to be a slightly more LARPy version of the Bujinkan more than anything. Anyone had experience with it? I know the basic history- an offshoot of the Bujinkan started by Hayes- since Hayes is often credited with helping to start the Ninjer phenomenon (and from the clips and crazy books of his I've seen I wouldn't put it past him) I wouldn't be surprised to see bad things from it.


    Then I saw these clips:

    Dear Lord....what hast the ninjerisms of Hatsumi and his disciples wrought?

    This seems awfully familiar.

    Pages 1-3: Various bullies post exclamations of hilarity.
    somewhere around pages 4-7 a newbie with his username consisting of "tampa, ninja, quest" and various numbers will post the following
    rah rah i study at jabber jabber bad speling honor blah deadly blah keyboard warriors grr aaarrhg cowards rah honor
    For 15 pages onwards:
    Questions are asked and subsequently ignored. TAMPANINJAWHUT will fixate on a single poster. Gong sau will be declared. Wherein the thread will have two conclusions.

    1. A bully goes to gym X, takes video of himself bumbling around for a while.
    2. rah wah honor insults honor thread fades to obscurity.

    I love the kicks that while low and quite weak, still put the guy totally off balance.

    Needs more chainpunch however.

    Pandas can't even reproduce without a team of handlers. True story.

    Don't forget that even after it's become obvious that TAMPANINJAWHUT is a troll with no connection to this crowd, everyone will continue to try and convince him that his training is useless, and/or go with the gong sau angle.

    That second video, right off the bat that was the very definition of assailant compliance. That take down took five minutes of arm windmills to finish. Not to mention the Frankenstein attack they were dealing with in the first place . . . yeesh.

    this place is close to where I'm going to be at in Tampa for the next few weeks... it won't be a true gong sau but I'll at least try to get a decent review of it if they let me in
