Drones for Ninjas?

Watch this ABC video and tell us you don’t think drones and drone technology should be included in our art.

Sound Weapons and the Ninja

Remember the good old Ninja days where the worst a Ninja faced was a Samurai wielding an incredibly sharp sword instead a middle aged, overweight security guard with sound weapons like an incredibly powerful sonic cannon? Well, probably not, because none of us were alive back then. Still, there are ninjutsu practitioners who wax poetic about the killing capacity of a katana as though it were somehow more “mystically superior” to a rail gun. Look, they’ll both kill you. One you’ll have a chance against (the katana), but the modern day sonic cannon you can’t. So get over the sword…

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…


  The ancient art of hojojutsu has always fascinated us.  This video will show you why, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Cellphone Jutsu

  Concealed and improvised weapons Small and concealed weapons raise many issues. They are not unique to any culture or country, and certainly the martial arts are filled with examples of small and concealable weapons. There are concerns we now face with terrorism where law enforcement have to content with concealed weapons in situations which in the past were uncommon. Concealed weapons among civilians are nothing new, especially in crime infested areas where weapons such as guns might be prohibited. People will carry such weapons to at least give themselves a fighting chance. In other cases they will carry these…

Ninja Tools & Weapons

ninja techniques

  Warriors of myth and legend, ninja are a fascinating, mysterious presence in our world. Through generations of disinformation and, more recently, their place in popular culture, the origins, tools, and methodology of the ninja have been shrouded in secrecy to alternately terrify or entertain the populace. The weapons of Ninjutsu are unusual and unorthodox. Though they have been popularized by the public’s expanding interest in the Ninja arts, they remain poorly understood. Glamorization of this method of defense has led to a publicly perceived disassociation from its origins as a “peasant art.” Ninja Tools and Weapons provides a reframing…

Grandmaster Law Goes to Ground

ninja techniques

  When Grandmaster Robert Law takes someone down, they stay down, as you can see from this picture.  Grandmaster Law is an amazing martial practitioner.  I have interviewed him several times over the years, and his intensity (although he is now over eighty years old) has not only never waned, it has increased.  He is the most totally focused martial practitioner that I have ever met. He is the 29th Grandmaster of Yoshin Mijji Ryu and the 119th Grandmaster of Geijin Ryu.  When I asked him during an initial interview how it was possible to be the 119th grandmaster of…
