    London ninjitsu

    Heres a link to there site: http://www.bujinkanlondon.org/

    Does anyone know anything about this place? I went to the hammersmith dojo when I was about 15 and I remember it being a small room with guys dressed as ninjas and a small guy with glasses constantly punching people in the groin to show how string he was, I think he was the sensai.

    Also the room smelt of piss I kid you not!

    So is the kings cross dojo any better?

    The kings cross dojo is a nice venue, but unless you're into slow motion fighting i'd stay away from bujinkan.

    If you can find the dojo, it means they aren't real ninjas.

    There's a strong overlap between the demographics of people who train ninjutsu and people who lose fights. While this may be do to an ancient gypsy curse on all ninjas dooming them to failure, it is more likely because Ninjutsu is a bad martial art.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    There are so many good clubs of other MA's that train hard and don't smell of piss as a bonus. How about trying one of them?

    This part was kinda cool:

    Most evenings end with a refreshing glass of beer in a nearby pub

    We're talking about British martial arts clubs, it's not going to be hard to find that elsewhere.

    a lot of people from Japan actually do that too. There must be something about martial arts that makes you have a hankering for a pint after you're done.

    Or maybe beer is just that fucking good.
