It seems to be the story of many places. "Back in the day, we used to train on logs suspended in hot coals. If you were knocked off, you were burned...."

Welcome the Ex-Ninja club. As you can tell, I'm a recovering ninja myself (left for judo too; maybe there's something to it).
Sometimes we get together on Tuesdays and toss the old rubber shuriken around, just for funsies.
What you did took guts and humility, especially putting up your black belt. If you ever chance to come to Texas, look me up and I'll go to the mat with you for some ex-ninja randori.--

You people do realize he's in Australia right?

Yeah, but Australians do have all sorts of modern amenities like airplanes. Not bad for a bunch of convict descendants, eh?--

Australia is close to Japan, its only 6 inches away on the map.
For you, Mr. Jones, that's 2 lengths of your penis. :thebirdma

Well Judo is a good choice to move onto from Bujinkan becuase I like the gi and enjoy grappling. What went through your head that led to leaving arahoushi?
Thanks for the offer Arah but I have no plans or reason to go to texas at the moment but if you come to Sydney come down to Olympic Park. We paid for it with our tax dollars and will proably never re-coup it's cost so I might as well get something out of it ;) Looks like a great setup: http://www.zenbu.com.au/Zenbu_Home_P..._-_Sydney.html
I'm used to small training groups of about 4-8 people. BJJ has about 10-12 on gi day. This place must be pulling 30+ people a lesson.

My instructor telling me never to come back because he didn't like the change in my attitude.--

Wow. And was this attitude something along the lines of "If you wanna learn how to fight, you have to do some sort of fighting?"
Arahoushi, Mongo and myself should meet up in Japan for the ex-ninja judoka throwdown. The first one to do omote-gyaku during randori wins a prize.

Do I get to say "fucking ninjas" now like kagekaze?
