So did he actually do it in the video you mentioned?
Some amazing verbal distractions on the topic of Ninjutsu in this one...

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
It looks like the footage was slowed to make things clearer. Unfrotunately except for the first incident we never see things at actual speed to tell just how much things were slowed down.

Well, it would of impressed me when I was younger. At the end you can see the arrows aren't aimed at him but to the side. Still takes good timing and practice. Doesn't prove anything Martial Arts related IMO.
Thats true. We had a similar thing with the breaking. I mean it was great mental conditioning and all. It really took a lot to punch through concrete... but it took a lot psychologically and not physically. It was one of the most incredible ironies and one that I won't ever forget. When i set my own personal record of doing an elbow strike through 6 concrete slabs, I never even felt the slabs because I went right through.... On the other hand, trying to shuto chop a renegade brick probably gave me osteiporosous for life dammit!!! :icon_flow

Professor Duncan is a Marine and during his enlistment was on the USMC Judo team.
One of his teachers that I know was Professor Ernie Cates (8th degree black belt in Kodokan Judo, 7th degree black belt in Taiho Jitsu (Police Tactics), 7th degree black belt in Goshin Jitsu (Self-Defense Tactics) who speaks highly of him.
He has trained in Hakko Ryu Jujitsu, Dai-nippon Jujitsu Ryu, Sosuishi Ryu, Kin Dai Gakko Ryu, Aikido, Aiki-Jujitsu, Kempo, Kobujitsu (weaponry), and Shinobino-jitsu.
Some of his instructors have also been Charlie Neal, Tatsuo Uzaki, and Don Draeger.
Professor Duncan's knowledge of "fighting folders" and their modern use is incredible.
I feel VERY lucky to have trained with Professor Duncan myself and can honestly say that I was absolutely blown away by his knowledge, ability and method of instruction. I only HATE that I will not be able to spend many more years training with him and greatly FEAR that all of his knowledge will not be passed in time.
If any one ever has the fortunate opportunity to train with this great legend they would be gravely mistaken not to jump at it with all humility!
Thank you Professor Duncan!
