Posted in: New Fuma ninja being recruited for first time in 400 years See in context

However, since in the modern era the region is no longer under threat of invasion from covetous rival warlords, the city of Odawara is establishing a Fuma ninja training program to help promote tourism to the area The Odawara Tourist Association has put out a notice that it’s seeking “Fuma ninja applicants” for the Ninja Sword Fighting Action Performer Training Course. Over the course of 20 once-a-week training sessions with martial artist and samurai drama/ninja movie fight coordinator Yuki Yoneyama, the ninja-to-be will train in movement and combat techniques, and upon graduation will participate in live performances of **shinobi skills to be held at Odawara Castle, as well as historical festivals and events in the Odawara area**.

Well, if its real Fuma ryu then I hope they are teaching those classes on a boat, sinceThe Fuma were Kaizoku. They basically were pirates.

3 claps for " traditional culture " recruiting foreign promotional "ninjas"....lol, wonder what's Hatsumi,s take on this.

Hey brother!

He's retired and passed on his Ryu-ha to his top students, so I don't think he cares. And anyway, at 90, what do U care about anyway?

she's an Asian Morticia!

Oh, come now.

You're right!

The Addams Family characters were weird but for the most part good natured and loveable. Not so much the case with her. She's more of a female Freddy Krueger. Whenever you see her image in your mind you hear a chain saw firing up in the background.

I stand corrected!

Its time to slowly bring in Taiwan into the international fold and not isolate it politically or otherwise anymore. The more the international community accepts Taiwan as a political entity separate from China the more difficult its going to be for the Chinese to invade it and it appears they maybe planning to do so.

If they made some cuts to the ridiculously overpaid and inefficient civil servants the pension issue would be fixed.

Sure. Like he told Pres Obama that China would never militarize the South China Sea. And six months later they were militarizing their artificial islands.

Lets also not forget Hong Kong and the 1 country 2 systems that China promised only to break that promise too.

China has lied to the world about it's "Peaceful Rise" for years and today their goal of becoming the dominant power in the region (and beyond) is common knowledge

The 27-year-old male resident, who works nights, returned home at around 2 a.m. Goto fled through a window but the resident chased him and caught him. He then brought Goto back to his house where he called 110.

Maybe they should recruit HIM into the SDF?

Posted in: Kono win in ruling party election likely to push Tokyo stocks higher See in context

Although Takaichi has vowed the most reflationary policies among the four, naming her package as "Sanaenomics," pursuing easy-money policies and boosting investment in crisis management including defense capabilities, a win by her may not boost shares as much as a Kono victory, as her right-leaning policies were seen as difficult to attract broad support from the people, analysts said.

Basically, her plan is to just keep printing more money to keep the yen down and boost the companies profits while screwing the average working stiff. No different from her mentor. Abe 3.0 is what we'll see with Sanae and her nomics
