whiff of bile: MooseUpNorth: I can still see them.

You see maybe 12 or so. There are 3,000 in that video.



All we're seeing are the class morons, stoners, slackers, and such. The ones who keep getting social promotions.

So much for Ninjas

Ninjas are a 20th century Hollywood construct. Anyone claiming some sort of warrior cult status is a fraud.


I remember watching that one at the time - kick-boxer (Pat Smith or something) v. ninja (Scott...something?), IIRC. Up until that point, I don't think I had ever seen anyone get beat so badly - and all within about 20 seconds. lol.

Scores of black-clad female "ninja" fighters whose ages range from 5 to 56 are just a handful of 3,000 women in Iran who are being trained as lethal warriors at a school in Tehran.

"We train women to have strength and ability. We have to do everything in our power to protect our homeland," said Akbar Faraji, who runs the school.

One of the fighters who has been training for over 13 years said, "Our aim is for Iranian women to be strengthened and if a problem arises, we will definitely declare our readiness to defend our Islamic homeland."



That is g*ddamned adorable. I love these 'revolutionary' states. The shiat they come up with... makes me "bawwwww," every time.

Yup - Scott Morris v. Pat Smith.
"For their second event, the UFC staged their first and only 16-man, one night tournament.

In the quarterfinals, Pat Smith met up with the ninja they called Scott Morris. It was too bad for Morris that his ninja skills failed him in this match.

In a mere 30 seconds, Smith got Morris to the ground, mounted and smashed his face with half a dozen unanswered elbows that left Morris' face a bloody mess.

Smith beat him up so bad that he actually stopped dropping the elbows and got up before the referee could step in to stop the match."

OK, so it was 30 seconds, not 20. lol.

Ouch that is one heck of a beating. Looks like he came from a different school where certain rules were in place that clearly are not observed in the ring.

2012-03-10 01:28:31 PM  

aaronius: So Iran, a country known for their less than stellar record of women's rights, is training a band of female ninjas? How are they going to react when said ninjas turn and revolt and end up taking down the government on their own? shiat, for that matter, we should have thought about something like that for Iraq. It would have been much faster and cheaper than what we actually did.


This was my thought. I don't believe they've thought their plan all the way through. I can't wait to see it play out.

Man: YOU HAVE LET YOUR HAIR SHOW. EACH LOCK OF HAIR IS A DAGGER IN THE HEART OF ALLAH!

2012-03-10 01:32:43 PM  
Between the ages of 5 and 56, eh?

Well, if they wash out of the "ninja" program maybe they can still get a job in the bass-boat navy or mo-ped mechanised corps.

"Iran: Sure, we still use ox carts, but we need a nuke!"

His school was Robert Bussey's Warrior International which marketed itself as a "combat" martial art. In reality It was a psuedo military/ninja LARP McDojo for aspiring Mall Ninjas.
 
2012-03-10 01:48:01 PM  
Wow, your ninjas can jump over swords? That's pretty impressive.

Our ninjas can dive out of an airplane, swim 50 miles, blow up all your bridges and dams, then sneak out of the water cut your throat and shoot all your friends.

It's sort of the same.

Why do ninjas always seem to hold sai with their fingers over the guard? Ignoring their origins as agricultural tools, any weapon with a guard has the guard to "guard" your hand in case an opponents weapon slides down your blade. Putting your fingers on the outside of the guard is a good way to get them smashed/chopped off.
Guard.

vudukungfu: UnspokenVoice: You realize he's probably a fat kid who's only martial arts training is via video game right?

Sorry to dissapoint.
But I'm 55, and couldn't find a dojo in my new neighborhood, so being lazy, I built one.
Then built my house around it.
Started with boxing in 3rd grade, and moved on to wrestling until I got kicked out for being "too dirty" and then moved on to judo. What got me interested in judo wasn't a comic book ad. It was an airborn ranger uncle. Then moved on to other martial arts.
Once in the military, I got very interested in how to deal with being suddenly unarmed, until I learned no one is unarmed, if they are trained correctly.

Video games are for kids.
I quit being a kid a long time ago.

But thanks for playing.

I have to play myself now, So I'm going outside to run to the store.
That is, run, on foot, 10 miles out and back, just to pick up some beans, and put them in the back pack with the rocks that are there.

When I get back, I'll make lunch.

Then, I'll work out.

Guard.


It gives greater control over use of the sai, but it does make the guards half as useful

Iran actually has a long history of female warriors, especially before Islam, but even as late as the Safavid period. Good to see these women reclaiming their heritage, sort of.

if there's one thing about Iran that is positive compared to all the other Middle Eastern countries, the Persian women definitely have a lot more freedom then their Arab counterparts. I think the shiate sect is a more tolerant than the Sunnis when it comes to women's rights. Wahabism is by far the most restrictive.
