    I wonder how he would handle a random dude who just thinks it is funny to thrash people. Most "trained martial artists" aren't fighters and have little applicable skills.

    It is the people who enjoy kicking ass that pick up the skills to win. Sometimes those people are martial artists.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I completely agree with that statement. I never claimed that it was consistent. My advice to people interested in MA or ninjitsu is to take a close look at what they are signing up for. Other dojos that are serious about their training do exist, but you need to be careful to find them. The same with any style, you could find a BJJ dojo, where the Sensei flings so much bull that the training is almost more likely to kill you.

    Wrong.

    You could find a fake BJJ coach who doesn't know how to grapple. Big difference.

    I meant someone who at least has some applicable skill. But I'll change my video, anyway.

    Ishamael, would you fare any better than this guy:

    There are two BJJ classes run at the Uni of Guelph. The first one is horrible. They teach you a technique (aka. tell you it) and then leave you to figure it out yourself. No help, no instruction, and when you are just getting into the practice, they throw another one at you. The conditioning was weak too, everything about it sucked. The other BJJ class though...hard-ass men and women, I'll tell you. They are definitely good enough to roll with the best. They do things right.

    To Backfistmonkey: Yes those kicks were sexy. lol. I can't say either way what would happen. A real fight ends with a punch, no more, no less. Whoever is better conditioned, whoever has more real-life xp to not get hit in the wrong way would be the favourite. That being said, lucky punches have happened, that have saved people. However, there is a BIG difference between those who are Ninjitsu MA's in their head, and who are Ninjitsu MA's in real-life. Those LARPers piss me off too, because they say: "I take ninjitsu too!" And stumble over their own feet.

    What about if it ends via submission?

    Again what makes you so different you seem to talk just like other ninjutsu folk
