    This would have made a great advent calendar type of thing. Now we will have to celebrate mid-January. Still great work though.

    There is much more to come. I currently have 7 more chapters done. Chapter 8 itself is 2 pages. So at my current schedule I have enough to post through Jan 1st. At the current rate the story is going, I expect to get to current day sometime around Mid-January.

    As I stated earlier, expect 3 Chapters a week.

    Strangely (as an easily impressed n00b and a little bit less n00b recreative) I never planned on joining bujinkan, and even if I would, they're too far and I enjoy judo waaaay too much. Hovewer I have this horrible terrible itch to see ninjas in training that just needs scratching. I don't know why. Really, I'm just as weirded out by this strange urge as you are reading this.

    Will read this thread, thank you.
    This sounds a lot like me. I started with Aikido, then moved onto something more direct and immediately useful (Muay Thai). I also occasionally get these strange urges to try the booj.

I see bullies using my brutal honesty for their amusement and I don't mind, humor is one thing for which I return to Bullshido again and again, even if the joke's on me :-).

    Will read this thread, thank you.

    Reading with interest and sympathy.

    I also found my way to MA at university through Goju Ryu and Aikido, though I'd've loved to do Ninjutsu had it been available.

    Looking forward to the thread. I had a similar experience many years ago at University except it was Aikido. Again, no experience of martial arts at the time, I was told that Aikido was "the ulitmate martial art"/used opponents strength against them etc. Plus we had a load of hot Japanese exchange students who did it.....

    As someone that is working on getting back into martial after a LONG hiatus, let me say I am looking forward to reading this in the hopes that I can learn all about the good, bad and ugly side of martial arts.

    Since you mentioned ninjutsu, I've just got to share this. I moved to-and still live in-Santa Clarita, CA when I was 15. Not long after I got here, an actual Dux-Ryu Ninjutsu school opened. Yep, the deadly Ninja school of Frank Dux himself. I attended a two-part free introductory lesson. We learned some basic stances, some basic hand strikes and some beginner fall/rolling techniques. I was told that I "looked like I could be a good ninja". I didn't go back after that as put more of my time into other activities. The school didn't last too long.
