I say we make up a pretext to invade him for oil and construction contracts.
Perhaps ninjitsu will spread throughout the near east.
How DARE you mock this!
A FATWA on you ALL!!!
I love these quotes:
This is the sum of the research I have done into this ancient art. I am trying to give an impartial insight into the lore of the Ninja, without getting bogged down in those petty "Ashida Kim is a fraud" or "Stephen Hayes is a con artist" or "Hatsumi is God" disputes. :gay:For that rubbish go to yahoo and search for Ashida Kim. You'll find plenty of websites filled with childish arguments concerning this man.
What? Did I miss a memo?
As I reiterate throughout this book, they [Martial Arts--Ed.] are a way of life, not a means to deal out death and destruction to your fellow man.
I will give him credit for being frank amongst the historical morass:
But he loses marks:
The creator of modern Ninjutsu is Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. There is some controversy regarding his Ninja lineage. But he shrugs it off. As far as the martial arts world is concerned, he is the grandfather of Ninjutsu. Many people from all over the world have made the pilgrimage to his Dojo in Japan. He owns a Ninja museum with many items from the Ninja past on display.
Ninja are involved in many civic activities like . . . the AIDS Walk and SAVE the Whales!
dern Ninjutsu is known for its humanitarian commitment toward community values. Students are encouraged to use their training and knowledge to be better citizens and students. Ninjutsu students of the 2Oth century are known to each other and have no desire to form a secret Ninja society.
About his qualifications . . . oh man! The page played "Gonna Fly Now!" MAN!
So he is a Sixth Degree in " Koga Ryu Ninjitsu Do." I will let the legitimate ninjitsu guys HERE evaluate that.
But this is just gay:
Not that there is anything wrong with that. . . .

I love their weapons page. Naturally, they use all the classic Okinawan weapons, just like any proper "Japanese" style. The naginata is a great idea, too. I can't think of anything easier to conceal than a 6 foot pole with a 2 foot blade at the end. Very stealthy.
Hypothesis: That chick is wielding butterfly knives because Raphael used a set in the old Eastman & Laird Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, in a storyline when they were pre-teens and their weapons were different, due to their ninja-n00baliciousness. Raph had the butterfly knives, Mikey had the manriki-gusari, Leonardo had one katana and Donatello had a Jo.
Between that and the Red Shinobi folk, it seems that the middle east has its fair share of ninja BS.
I don't even know what to say.......
Ok I promised to go through the site carfully later and prepare a LONG ass wooping. The only thing I'll saynow is, Everyone of them should be raped with a Ninja-To.
One of the lost New Kids on the Block?
This guy must have a grueling photo shoot schedule. Jesus can he take any more pictures of himself?
