The two people I thought of were Scott Morris and Scott Jenum (which have already been mentioned). Honestly, I think Ninjitsu has shown to be pretty ineffective in a street fight setting.

I trained in it many years ago for a bit and did learn some neat shit but it was stuff you couldnt use in mma. There has to be some merit to the style based on history but it probably does attract "fantasy warriors" nowadays that could'nt knock a sick whore off a piss pot! I watched those two guys that travel around the world training and fighting (Bill & Jason cant recall name of show) and they fought ninjutsu guys on an episode. Ninjitsu ddnt impress on that show either.

I have always been under the impression that people who study ninjitsu today are Live Action Role Players. I have met and trained with a few ninjitsu guys and well I wasn't impressed.

I did have a chance to meet a group in Yosemite on a hike to half dome. Cause when you see a group of guys hiking up the hill with their kendo sticks you begin to wonder and ask a few questions. They make yearly trips to half dome around the same time a year I head up there.

When I ran into them again in the little valley, I had a chance to witness them train. All I can say is that I was pretty impressed, they were sparring full contact. It really looked like they had their heads in the right place when it came to training practically. I was expecting to see they all lined up perfectly throwing snap punches in the air with a loud scream.

Now I am not saying they are totally awesome sauce, but I think they understand what is practical training.

*edit*

Watching them beat each other with the kendo sticks was f*cking great.

well you cant compare martial arts and he must have been one bad ninjutsu practioner especially if he agreed to a street fight hes obviously not legit

and the ninjutsu you people have seen is probably not legitimate there are many knock-off ninjutsu dojos and if you practice ninjutsu and fight in the ufc you will get kicked out of your dojo. i practice five hours a day and have had it prove i can kill people in under 20 seconds with my bare hands i respect all martial arts but it bugs me when people are at a loss of respect. one more thing is that you cannot compare martial arts only fighters

Yeah, me ;). Not to sound cocky, but i'm no slouch and ninjutsu has tought me a lot of grappling and quick finishes. I'm a brown belt in Bujinkan Ninjutsu, and i know plenty to defend myself and more. I have respect for all martial arts, but there is no supreme martial art. I believe in mixing styles to achieve your true potential

Its not really an art that's transferable to MMA without serious alterations IMO.

From what I know of the art, its a no rules kill a man and do what you gotta do kind of thing. And its not so much just a martial art as a full on survival system. Its everything from acrobatics to muscular conditioning, climbing, weapons' training, AND martial arts. But from what I've seen from the art it looks like Karate, Kung Fu and Aikido had an assassination baby with a spider monkey.

A perfect option for life, after first being introduced to it I went and checked out some videos and really want to learn it in all its forms, but as an MMA art...not a great choice.

Well, Ninjitsu is great in it's purest form, but there are a lot of people who have whored it out because of anime and japanese movies and completely destroyed it. It's sort of like how wing chun can't be put in to mma, I trained wing chun with my dad for a while before i started muay thai. and Wing Chun is all kicks below the belt, pressure point and throat strikes.

War

Most martial arts have came from ninjutsu. They just take 1 small part of ninjutsu and make a sport out of it. every ninja is going to be different according to what skills they decided to focus on. If a Ninjutsu student decided they wanted to focus on the jujutsu part or the karate part of ninjutsu, than they would be just as good in the ring as all of the MMA guys who focus only on that one small part of Ninjutsu. A ninja can focus on buildin whatever skills they want, but most generally Ninjutsu is a weapons based martial art. Its not a sport, Its what all of the police and military around the world use to kill and stay alive. Give the MMA guy a sword and watch him loose. The difference is who is better in the ring with rules that cause ninjutsu moves to be illegal. Who is better in the real life battlefield. who would be better to fight beside in a war.

I don't know about this.

Some ninjutsu seems to be based on joint manipulation and arm, shoulder, wrist locks, etc kind of like jujitsu. It also has small joint manipulation and pressure point manipulation (?) which are illegal in MMA.
