    Well, I know a certain rodent who has also name-checked Hatsumi in an effort to impress us with his knowledge of ninjutsu. But (and here I'm serious) I'm trying to be nice...

    I figure this vid was some kind of resume, maybe to get into college, or an acting gig or something. Then it turned up on the internet, as these vids in the wild are wont to do. There's even video of me ninjing it up out there -- and I most certainly didn't post it!!! (No, I'm not helping you find it.)

    I think he's most likely "fibbing" about his experience (6th Dan, really?), which is a shame because he assumed no one would no the difference between crappy krotty moves and the specific Bujinkan style. That's dumb. If there's one thing I've learned, you can't swing a kusarifundo in the martial arts would without hitting a godan Bujer Ninja Master (tm).

    If he does know any Bujinkan material, he's not showing it here...

    I name checked Hatsumi in a failed effort to prove something or other otherwise unrelated to Bujinkan. Mea culpa. But I know his books very well and I value them as philosophy.

    It's on my TODO list.

    IMHO he doesn't even show much grace in his movements, something you'd expect from a 6th dan making an Internet video...if I were going to be filmed like this I would probably...train more.

    It does not matter if a person is a 6th Dan Karate or Bujinkan, a boxer with only six month training can be a handful for them.

    Should've gone with brown, it's for bright places so that your eyes are contrasted to the rest of your face on the footage. Also for bright stage lights.

    If you mean NYC, that is most definitely not my area...if I wanted to fight in NYC I'd take a drive on the L.I.E.

    Seriously though if NYC is the closest throwdowns get to NJ, that will probably be where I'd end up. Someday. When my ninjer skills are complete.

    It's a minute and forty-nine seconds of gripping self-promotion. It made me wonder if he was trying to impress a young lady friend.

    YouTube- Erik Edwards - Bujinkan Ninjutsu
    Jesus Christ, Greg "Choson Ninja" Park has better moves than this. If he's been training since he was five, he must have skipped a few years.

    I don't recall implying this wasn't true.
