so I found this near my house one day posted on a telephone poll and I thought, "That's exactly how I imagine ninjas advertised their schools in ancient Japan." Carry on my wayward son!!
BTW the small writing says "not everyone is accepted". I assume you have to bring a gift of 10 sheets of poster board and 5 sharpies or there's no deal.

I think this should probably be moved to Newbietown. That's where introductions are generally handled. ^_~
Glad to have another wushu athlete on board. I assume you mean performance wushu?
Edit: I like the sign. Around here, our Ninjas are even less stealthy - they use big glaring signs in front of their strip mall dojos and cover campus in fliers.

oops! sorry, guess it should be newbie town technically. Yeah I already called this guy, but if you don't mind the long distance you could call it too, area code is 615 for this sign. He told me, and I quote his phrasing, we will teach you skin ripping techniques, bone breaking techniques, how to breathe under water, How to disappear, FOR REAL!, and then a list of a dozen or so ____-jitsu's. Then he made an appointment for me and said if I didn't make that appointment I (duh duh duh!!) COULD NEVER RESCHEDULE IT. Of course I never showed up because all this was already more than enough to know bogus "krotty in black gi's means ninjistu" BS. Anyways, thanks for the greetings guys, lookin' forward to more misadventures in the world of Bullshido.

Also, yeah, I practice the standard all-china style performance wushu, and do some MMA for more modern self defense stuff.
Here, hold these for me.

You shoulda shown up and just stood there laughing.

I would of shown up and played along... seen how deep the rabbit hole really went.
Yeah I kinda regretted not going, but seeing how I used a fake name I could always call again. Assuming he hasn't vanished into a cloud of smoke or something. Of course it's one of those things where my first and only persistent question would be to show me the breathing underwater/disappearing for real techniques, with the standard answer being "we only teach those to advanced students" I assume. Not to mention the growing urge to kick his ass in front of his students. Which would be wrong.....
