    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Tonight on Mythbusters: Ninjas!

    Tonight, 9 EST or whatever happens to be your Mythbusting time.

    Walking on water, catching arrows, catching blades.
    DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

    I predict busted... and I hope they do it wearing a pirate outfit.

    although, I have seen catching arrows on riply's believe it or not... blind folded no less.

    My predictions...

    Walking on water: Busted
    Catching arrows: Confirmed
    Blade grabbing: Busted

    I've seen catching arrows before too, but I think an overhead swing from a sword might have too much power behind it to catch it.

    My prediction: Ninjer will have lame ass excuses for why all his stuff is busted.

    (ie....Ninja death touch no workee because biggie toe not touching ground or some
    f----tarded stuff like that)


    Edit: even my psychotic bread-buying wife is laughing at the ninjers
    and she hasn't even SEEN it yet.....

    An episode of a BBC show called Mind body and kick ass moves had a japanese guy disarm a man that was coming at him full force with a Katana, doing a downward slash.

    does that mean you can do it every time ...No...but it shows that it can be done.

    Was that the awesome Bujinkan move of "catch the blade, rip it from his hands and slash him with his own sword, all while holding the sword still by its blade"? I have that on a full length booj ninjer video somewhere.

    Its Dale Seago doing the Ninjering so there will be at least no "Death Touch."


    However, I predict the claw vs sword will be confirmed based on that is physically possible even though unlikely.

    Need a little clarification here... blade grabbing as in grabbing the actual blade of the sword between your hands? Or just disarming the sword?

    I guess this is a good as time as any to start watching that show again.

    Cool.

    BTW, not to thread hijack, but did anyone see Randy Couture on Hazard Pay last week? Pretty good stuff. The Hazard Pay guy has balls.

    1.Blade grabbing: confirmed
    2. Bye-bye to Mr. Index Finger and his family
