So, this has what to do with ninjas monkey rollng to their left quadrant and ripping off grappling?

Aesop is correct. Stop trying to take the heat off of your silly ninja claims, Koto."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

Also, there's plenty of quality instructors out there who have others write their ads for them that don't use the same old tired RBSD salespitch.

That's ok, ninjaboy, if it makes you feel better, then go with your feelings.
Besides, if claiming to teach navy seals is a lie, and his biggest claim.. it still doesn't compare to anyone claiming to teach authentic ninjitsu.

Let's get another thing straight here: You even make ninja bashing uncool.

Let's start with this. I realize this is a kata. I also realize that, much like a Magic Eye image, if I cross my eyes at it long enough I'll see the hidden image that takes place in some fantastical dimension where people actually do....that. And I'm sure it's teaching you "principles of movement" and "basic footwork" and that you're "wasting your fucking time" learning "kata that in no way bear even a passing resemblance to how real human beings fight". But I just want you to know...I showed that clip to some non-MA practicing friends and got big laughs. So thank you.
I liked this. You're holding a weapon, your opponent announces his intention of punching you, you scream and throw your weapon away which causes him to backflip into the some abstract, Cirque du Solei scarf hold variant. You wrist lock him and uncomfotably strike a "casual" pose because you're a Bujinkan practioner and thus have such an intricate knowledge of grappling you can afford to break the rules.
This has always interested me. Why is it that so many TMA feel the need to beat off on camera every time they use a submission? Why is it that every half-assed wrist lock is accompanied by uproarious laughter by the 43-year old fishing and woodworking enthusiasts in the audience and zingers of "that's gonna hurt in the morning!" by the pudgy stay-at-home moms in attendence? Why do you guys feel the need to at all times have one hand dangling at your side EVERY time you do a move that would require actual effort and control?
Why do you always fall over when doing an arm bar from the guard?Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:
1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!
2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.
3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

What arts in the Bujinkan are recognized Koryu Bujutsu?

I can think of two off the top of my head. Kukishinden Ryu and Takagi Yoshin Ryu. I can't remember if there are others at the moment. Lack of sleep makes the memory go. :)

Neither of those are recognized as Koryu Bujutsu.
