Something that speaks volumes about the realism of ninjutsu is that last summer there was an awesome Cosplay party in quebec city (couldn't finish my Lina Inverse costume in time waaaaaahhh!) and there was a bujinkan ninjutsu exebition, complete with the ninja black gear and the hatsumi books. I understand they where trying to tap into the Naruto fan base but I seriously hope that Naruto fans don't think they can pull out anime moves by studying bujinkan! Their rubber shuriken throwing managed to impress the younger ones but I should have done the old bruce lee trick; try to block a punch. I did it against my shotokan blue beld brother and fellow shotokan blue belt boss, I did it with an ex-co worker ninja and of course nobody could block it. :laughing7 ah but a cosplay isn't the place to destroy people's delusions and dreams, it's the place to have MAJOR FUN!!! :qcheerlea

I think this summarizes quite well my opinion on certain brands of cosplay...and kudos to Randall K. Milholland for creating it.

it means to remove their ability to reproduce, you spay a female pet and neuter a male pet.

Spay means to remove a female cat's ovaries etc and render them sterile. de castrer? de neutraliser?

I do have a few books about ninjutsu, and the infamous hatsumi one too. The practical ninjutsu one is a french book by harbezetzer (french karate black belt and martial art scholar) and the techniques are useless in modern society; all the weapon training is dumb I think. And the barehand stuff is just standard shotokan karate. The hatsumi book is 90 per cent spiritual drivel and 10 per cent self-defense against katana wielding attacker :merror:

No, you should've ninja buddied. You made the same mistake I had made.

There was a great candidate at an anime convention a few years back that I let slip away. Listen, a ninja buddy is essential. They are the distraction during a fight so that you may either:
A: Come in from behind and defeat the opposition
B: Run away and live to fight another day
C: Get such a beating that you and the opposition can become friends and laugh at his/her inability to fight together.

It's what they are trained to do. Fill in that void in their life and make them complete again.

pretty funny! unfortunalely I have to admit that the first time I heard about pressure point striking with a thumb-fist, I bought it. :eusa_wall

I'm a martial art fan, and a nerd, at the same time. Makes me less than popular to men outside the otaku world :icon_cry:
