    As a ninja myself, I advise you to read Mishima and his psychic mentor, William Faulkner.
    I advise some Mann.

    This is so weird, this massive ninja obsession.

    As a kid in the 80s my friends and I were into Ninjas, mainly from watching Bruce Lee movies, and we'd go to local parks and stalk through the bushes like idiots wearing camo clothes and eating out of tin cans - of course we'd have our ninja stars (some home made) and nunchucks. It was such a small crowd into this stuff back then that it blows me away how popular the term and subject of ninja is today. Weird, it's taken on a totally different meaning with today's youth.

    I used to read the Stephen K. Hayes books about ninjas when I was about 8 or 9. I checked them out from the public library. I think that's about the least ninja-like way to learn about ninjas possible.

    Man - just try walking into a bank or an airport with that on! You'd get taken down by security in a heartbeat.

    OK - I used to own some Stephen Hayes books as well. Took some courses with this guy (RIP) when I was in college but was never into it as seriously as some of my friends...

    I looked seriously for ninja street wear last fall... here are two shoes that might interest you:

    Onitsuka Tiger Marathon Tabi
    [​IMG]

    Nike Air Rift

    I think that Air Rift are easier to get a hold of these days... though the unfortunately (depedning on your gender and shoe size) come only in women's sizes

    waataaaaaaaaa!

    <had homemade nunchucks with 2 pieces of wood and some string when he was 8>

    <is now 25>

    I COMMIT, DAMNIT!

    Edit: Might I share - I was on a plane to Boston today.. on JetBlue (which is freaking awesome for the price). Nonetheless, they have DirectTV and on one of the channels, I believe VH1, perhaps Bravo.. was a "bad ass vixen" show or some crap. This freaking moron, I swear, goes on to say that the yellow/black outfit Uma Thurman wore in Kill Bill was supposed to portray the image of a superhero, whereas anyone with a freaking brain knows, was a tribute to Bruce. Fuck off cable TV. Had to rant. Thanks.

    Bruce Lee was a super hero. Representing for Asian brothers everywhere.

    Bruce Lee was an exclusionist; he represented only for Chinese brothers.

    Well, the Middle Kingdom, right? Besides, I am Chinese/Cantonese, and studied under the same school as Bruce, so I am biased.

    Now you can go for a quick run and toss a grappling hook on a knotted rope up a castle wall, and look hip doing it.

    Yes, but Storm Shadow took ninjas back 20 years. What kind of stealthy ninja assassin wears white?

    LA Guy, there's a Jackman Wong waiting for you in the shadows somewhere...
