    Ninjitsu is effective if you train like this:
    http://www.e-budo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20451

    Any other bujinkan dojo in that situation would have said that they train to "survive" and that martial arts was about becoming a better person.

    hm

    Sometimes I am torn between two responses

    IE

    "OH yeah it's hella effective if your neighborhood is infested with pesky oyabun and shogun's enforcers!"

    Vs

    "You know, we don't really like people that blindly toe the party line anymore then we like ninjas"

    Sometimes I can't choose.

    Let me give you my answer.

    Ninjustu (it's correct name is Bujinkan okay ?) is a very fucked up system. It has problems. Mainly because of the way its taught in Japan. You have people in the Bujinkan who are great, but most are not so good.

    The problem with the Bujnkan is most clubs do no sparring. No free practice. I'm serious. They attack each other with obvious lunge punches and just stand there letting their partner put the technique on. That and most Bujinkan clubs do not focus on hard, athletic training.

    If you have your heart set on it, look around. But before you choose to train anywear make sure that they do sparring and if they don't do a U turn and walk straight out the door.

    Personally your better off taking another art. Your full contact competition styles tun out your better quality fighters. Your kickboxing,boxing, wrestling, Judo,BJJ, mauy thai, full contact karate, you know what I mean right ? Since you do Muay Thai I would stick with that. By far its one of the best striking arts around.

    Ninjas don't fight people, they sneak up behind you and kill you.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
