Bonus point to whoever tapes/youtubes it.
I wouldn't mind seeing that for the "LOL!!" of it all.I can't wait to see the TV promos.
You just know every ninja nerd on the western seaboard is going to have one humungess collective orgasm when this airs.
If this episode sucks and is completely non-factual the entire bullshido community should send viewer mail in.
I love Mythbusters, I can't wait for this show. Airs in April? ~anxious dance~
Yeah mythbusters rocks...though there has been times when they try to bust a myth and the way around it kind of seems the "unrealistic" way of testing the theory.
I too would like to see Dale in action. Most people don't like what he has to say. Others tell me that he is pretty awesome to see in action. I can't comment because I have never seen him except for that clip where the young goofy kid is trying to punch him and that wasn't really a serious clip to start off with.
This might be interesting.
Though I would have been more impressed if Mythbusters looked to see if someone could climb a wall with shuko.
They usually just try adding more force or explosives until it just eventually works, **** blowing up always makes good TV.

Doesn't Dale pretty much dress just like the one guy from mythbusters? I wonder if that was weird for them.
Doesn't the fact that they're using another Booj Ninja ruin the objectiveness of the experiment? Wouldn't it have been better to use kendo practitioner or anyone who doesn't practice Booj Kenjutsu?
Using an unsharpened sword to test this ruins it. If you’ve tried it, just think about the amount of contact the blade has with your hand and fingers. Not only that, but with the speed at which the blade would be moving in real life … it’s bullshit.
I’m sure Dale Seago set them straight about how there is no such thing as “Ninjutsu” anymore, how the history of “ninjas” is questionable at best, and how it’s basically all just bad Jujutsu and questionable lineages.
