my favourite was this;
“Well, when you fight over some thing meaningless like an insult, even if you win, you have nothing to show for it. So, there is no point. Besides if you win today. Perhaps tomorrow I will win. So, even if you win today, it means nothing. Also, even if I win, and I am sure I can because I cheat and even youth and ability cannot overcome age and treachery, even so, I may be injured. How shall I pay for this if there is no prize? Then there is the matter of lethality. When you are in the ring you must WANT to hurt the opponent.”
Now this is great...
When he does his demo turn the volume down and play "Saturday Night Fever"
- Pure class!
FANTASTIC!!! We've had him all wrong! He's actrually a stand up comic!!

How prey tell, does a "Tiger claw to the cheek" GUARANTEE any of these?
He also said that you could rip the head right off with a "Double tiger claw"
This one's great as well!!
The beginning with his over compliant slow mow fighting in his pyjamas and balaclava.
The bit about 2:30 in when he starts..... break dancing???

Just got a reply from a Youtuber that can't jump off the Ashida Train. After a small verbal argument with him, I get this:
"Keep training and one day you might be half as good as Grandmaster Kim."
Yes! I'am teh invinsible!
Did everyone watch that ninja death touch video? I mean seriously, he uses the movie Bloodsport as historical evidence.
"A short, dynamic punch that can be used at close range to stun an opponent or break his nose using only four ounces of pressure."
ONLY four ounces, no more! Arm powered vertical punch only!
Was this one posted?
Man, there was him "fighting" in a ring of some kind (probably not for $10,000 by the looks of it), him doing some transforming into a tengu or something, and the sand throwing technique. All set to Ozzy.
In order to have not wasted my time, I watched the 'Ask a Ninja' vids instead. Much more entertaining. Much better ninja than Ashida anyday. :ninja7:

Just after the 3 minute mark watch for the worst upper rising block in the history of everything delivered for our entertainment by one of his students.
If you listen carefully to the sound track, the main chorus seems to be singing "Always dreaming"
