Aside from being LARPers, is ninjutsu even useful in a fight? I sat in on a bujinkan class and well I was speechless because I was laughing hard. Seriously, though I'm open to every martial art, so anyone with first hand experience know if this is useful for self defense?

Hey buddy! Obviously you've never had to scale a castle wall. Silently kill the guards and pop a poison dart in someone's ass or you wouldn't need to ask such a silly question.

You mean strictly speaking Ninjitsu or the Taijutsu that the bujinkan learn? Ninjitsu, at least the togakure I've seen is some very odd looking kata that I wouldn't put much faith in for real fighting. I believe ninjistu was mostly concerned with stealth, espionage, other non-combative things. The combative stuff is morre to do with using weapons like the shuko, metsubishi and shuriken. I think that "ninjas" if they really existed, used the same jujitsu technqiues that everyone else was doing when it came to fighting. If you mean is Bujinkan useful in a fight? It can be. I mostly depends on how you train it. The bujinkan loves compliant training and that has many limitations when it comes to real self defence. Like anything, the closer your training comes to real fighting the more useful it will be for self defence.

Man, when I saw this guy's name, I was hoping it was the return of Ace Skippy. That guy was great.

If you plan on winning, probably not.
