He fought in Shooto Japan and I think he fought under a pseudonym.

What really baffles me is why someone who has studied Judo or MMA would show any interest in Ninjitsu, or bother to train people in that dead manner. I studied at the Bujinkan because I didn't know any better, and after four years of training in exactly the same manner as the poor fools in this video, I had a black belt that was completely worthless.
Bujinkan training left me with standup skills that were inferior to TKD yellow belts, throwing techniques that wouldn't do a thing against good Judoka, and ground skills that would get me mauled by BJJ white belts.
Of course, while I was learning Taijitsu, I had no exposure to good martial arts, so I had no idea how bad my training was. Why someone who has competed in Shooto would bother with that nonsense is beyond me, unless he's just out to make money in th easiest manner possible. :cwm21:

Just a quick crazy thought that should probably be quickly disregarded but you know how u guys say that a lot of the buj techniques would never work against a resisting oponent do you guys think that a lot of these techniques were never meant to work against a resisting oponent. Wasn't the whole purpose of ninjutsu to catch someone by surprise or off guard and kill them in the cheapest most dishonorable way possible were as the samurai learned an art like jujitsu which was more based on fighting resisting oponents in honorable one on one combat. Well anyways what do u guys think should I shut the hell up?

To Japolo; I think he started off in Bujinkan before doing shooto, I don't know when the Judo came into it. Maybe he just can't let the bujinkan stuff go?
And I share your view Japolo. My black belt is worthless, my grappling didn't do a thing against Judo white belts and the striking system is silly and doesn't hold a candle to boxing or muay thai.
Here you go boys, all the ninjitsu you could want:

Maybe nobody knew any better? Maybe it used to be t3h r34l? Maybe you have to use these lower percentage technqiues when dressed in armour? Maybe Hannibal has the real _ing _un? Such are the mysteries of the universe.
