    I do Shotkun Karate Do. Im well known at my dojo. Im only 2 belts away from getting my black! Ive been doing it for 8 years, it takes auround 10 to get you black belt in shotokun.

    @what was said by you and byakuyakuya(?) It is rather tough but well worth the efoort. 8 years in and i have the confedence to know that if im getting mugged i can be out of it without a sratch. Lol i wouldnt recommend moves like theese but i know aboot 5 moves that will let me kill or at least K.O someone with my right hand.

    When I took ninjitsu I chose to become skilled with the han-bo. Without a weapon I could counter anything and keep my distance. If you fall from a great hight, it can train your body to alter the impact so that you take little damage and are up in a second.

    I remember when these two guys thought it would be funny to do a prank on me by pushing me backwards when someone was crowching behind me, on instinct i turned it into a fluid roll so that it didnt even look like I fell down. Everyone watching was amazed.

    Read up on it, this wiki isnt far off. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ninjitsu

    LOL you could have just said Kendo. But I hope you are not implying that Ninjitsu is not a legit martial art that is still practiced today in many countries. The ninjitsu is NOT what the media portay as ninja's. Ninja's were originally freedom fighters of the small clans found within the mountains of japan. It was survival based martial arts which was supposedly considered mysterious by superstitious japanese. Thus the ninja as a magical fighter seemed to be born within popular culture.

    The mountain clans were smart. They would drain small eggs so that thye were hollow, fill the insides with spices like pepper and or druggy types that would cause hallucinations, then with rice (which can easily become a glue paste) cover the opening in the egg. Wala, they have bombs that they could use in combat.

    The shuriken/ninja star? it was made to distract an oppenent in combat not really hurt them (thrown), or placed within the palm of a hand to make a fist weapon that would hurt the oppenent by grabbing them with one hand and with the other (shuriken in hand) flicking/smashing the fist with the ninja star along vital points causing damage.

    anyways im getting carried away...

    hehe if we are gonna get into the real ninja anime, not kiddy naruto (which i do appreciate) then we should show a picture of the classic NINJA SCROLL.... er and akira. Lets not forget the REAL good anime's in history, not the cheap BS thats being pumped out today


    One of the best damn anime's ever created... well second to Monoke Hime which I must say was pretty #$%!ing good. (not that its bad, but it doesnt come close to the anime of the past.)
    damn now i have to find my ninja scroll dvd and rewatch it.

    He was a samurai (the sword and clothes are a give away)
    Jubei was based on a real samurai Jubei Kibagami is a homage to the famed Japanese samurai folk hero Yagyu Jubei.

    It was a oversight by the creatator to call him a ninja (Samurais, ninjas and assassins are often mixed up by people that dont know what there talking about)

    yes it is based off the swordman hero, however, theres a large misconception which misinterprets a ninja as one who either has no honor or dresses in a black jumpsuit. The character Jubei in the ninja scrolls could have very well been a ninja. Ask yourself this, does he fight without the sword at one point?

    The truth is, wikipedia is not a valid source of information. It is user generated, and we must keep that in mind. The fact, is that jubei in the series and film is a masterless ninja who is profitiant in the sword. Feel free to look up the details on "ninja scroll".
