Everything is a Weapon- Part One of Three

  With a growing outrage to take away firearms weapons from citizens, what exactly will men and women use to defend their homes during a break in? When my arthritic mother was in her late seventies, five men broke down the back door of his her house and took whatever of her belongings they could get away with. Fortunately, she wasn’t home at the time. But if she had been, I don’t like to think what could have happened to her. In her sixties, a gun wielding thug accosted her at a gas station by putting a pistol to her…

Ninja and the MicroChip

The Ninja and the MicroChip has the ring of a good, futuristic documentary.  Unfortunately, it’s already happening, and gaining speed.  What does the mean to the future of ninjutsu stealth strategies?  Or, perhaps you’re too busy shopping for tabis to give this type of thing much thought.  Reenacting the past glories of Japan can be fun, but how about moving our art into the present?  Maybe even becoming the leading edge again the way the Ninja used to?

Is Hatsumi Qualified to Teach New Weapons?

No, Hatsumi is not qualified to teach new Ninja Weapons.  Get over it.  Ninjutsu is not about Hatsumi worship.  Ninjutsu is an evolutionary art.  If you want to live in the past, visit a Renaissance Festival.  Watch the young man in this video and get with where ninjutsu is going.  If not, go back to polishing your nunchucks or dusting your photo of Hatsumi dying his hair.  He’s an old man, let the art he teaches live with dignity by encouraging it to evolve.  Spell it with me: SCIENCE.  It’s the real Ninja art.

  We’re excited to announce the new book The New Ninjas by staff member Ferrel D. Moore, which is available on our site for pre-order.  It will also be listed at Amazon for pre-order as well.  The New Ninja will focus on the evolution of ninjutsu into something never, ever imagined by the old masters.  Although we’ll look ahead to the future, consider that the old staple highly trained Ninja dogs have been replaced by robotic AI.  We now live in a world dominated by the Internet of Things, and where cloud computing can interface with personal objects at a remote…

Bujinkan Knife Disarms and Comments

Sensei Roemke seems to be one of those uniquely gifted individuals who teaches a demanding art, but never forgets to encourage his students.  But the comments attending his YouTube video are typical. TigerHjärta9 months ago I am not saying that these techniques wont work, I am just saying that they have a very low chance of working. In all these defenses the attacker is really giving himself to defender. Something a real attacker wont do.

Marc MacYoung and Lies About Knife Fighting

  “The only place where the knife fighting fantasy exists is in the martial arts. There is no such thing in the modern civilized world. In legal terms it is attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon or homicide. To the streetfighter it is assassination, not a “fight” at all. To the criminal it is a tool for robbery Everyone else considers it abhorrent macho stupidity. The only place where the knife fighting fantasy exists is in the martial arts. There is no such thing in the modern civilized world. In legal terms it is attempted murder, assault with a…
