    For fucks sake man you have two threads with the same question! Get over ninjitsu. So Cal is the mecca of MA's, you have so many real options it's pathetic. Do what Poidog said. Show up for the NoHo Clan's Saturday class. It has knives, sticks, staffs, guns (sometimes), punching, kicking, grappling and sparring on a weekly basis. All you need to do is wear your black pajamas and you can call it ninjitsu. We won't say a word... promise!

    The problem I have is why people want to take ninjutsu. Don't what that kind of training would entail. Hey, lets learn how to be a ninja; who was only used in ancient Japan. It's a dead art. Their fighting style taijutsu is not however. It's more or less a kind of Japanese Jujutsu. You want to sneak around and kill people dressed in black? Well, go see if special forces like the Navy Seals will take you.

    I just started training at Rey Diogo's place in Culver City. Not wanting to start a new thread for something that's already been covered, I was wondering if there's anyone else actively training there. I should be easy to spot, I'm the new, tall, skinny, white guy and I wear a green gi top.

    One of my friends trades lessons with one of Rey Diogo's brown belts. I've trained with him once myself recently and really enjoyed it, as I posted in a different thread.

    I just briefly met Mr. Diogo himself one time. He was hella' cool to me.

    If I can just work out my work/school/training schedule, I will see you there!
