    He was a ninja. You could tell by the clothing.

    I would pay to see a japanese daytime talk show watch that video and have a reaction.

    That could be a featurette on Genki TV.

    True story.

    Bear hug defense is always laughs. I had to just shut it off after seeing the knife disarms. There are better ways to train to kill yourself at the hands of another man.

    I love how he would kind of crawl/kneel/twist on the guys arm every now and again. You know he's thinking "I know there is an arm bar thing from here, I just don't know how to do it. I'll just crawl on him, no one will notice."

    All retarded quotes lifted from -http://www.vancouver-ninjutsu.com/

    [IIn short, Taijutsu is your source for complete training. Not only is cross training in other martial arts unnecessary, it is strongly discouraged. Don't let a narrow mind and short patience deter you from achieving your training goals.

    Hmmm....So a narrow mind and short patience asks questions and seeks to cross train? Sounds like cult mentality. "Don't let ....deter you from achieving your goals"- how could they know what your goals are and what is necessary to achieve them?

    Training in other martial arts within the Vancouver Bujinkan Ninjutsu Dojo is strictly prohibited.

    No! this isn't close minded at all. It's a cult!

    Keep jewelery to a minimum. Wearing finger rings and earrings is potentially very dangerous and to be avoided.


    Finger rings are dangerous? I'll keep that in mind next time I face a ninja.

    Bring to class only those weapons allowed under the Criminal Code of Canada. Examples of prohibited weapons include metal chains, metal Shuriken (throwing stars) & switchblades.

    No metal chains or shurikens? Abide by local laws? Not very ninjerly. The only laws a true ninja needs is the code of the ninja!

    This, if I were to point out one single problem that is at the heart of most unrealistic martial arts, would be the biggest problem that most instructors suffer from. The unrealistic, hit nothing and hold your fist out there so the teacher can do his thing punch. I see it with every single new student I've ever had. They don't want to hit the teacher and they don't want to risk making said teacher mess up a technique. If you don't realize whats happening it becomes very easy to start believing your own BS and next thing you know we have someone new to laugh at.

    Because when you apply your super devastating technique of doom to a vital spot they will be so confused and distracted they will just stand there long enough to do your thing to them. DUh. They explained that on day one right after explaining how they're too deadly to spar. Weren't you paying attention?

    So does that stuff not even work if your super gauge is at maximum?

    Nope. I have found it Pretty much impossible to apply any of these techniques to a fully resisting opponent. Oni Kudaki is a prime example.

    Just for sake of discussion: how is oni kudaki substantially different in mechanics from an americana?
