I hope i spelt the title right! Anyway hi everyone! I've been a Tekken fan since the original, naturally my fave character in the game has always been Yoshi. He's the only guy who makes a real effort to wear something new in each game! I bet the designers enjoy designing his outfits most of all.
Anyway i'm glad that i'm not alone in my fetish! I bought a ps3 as soon as tekken dr went online, because it's the best reason to own one. So now i gotta polish up for all those Anna and Nina fans out there that are no doubt cleaning up.
When i'm not stabbing other players i'm either reading (mostly science and natural history), making tunes (i produce Techno buti'm not signed) or working. I'm well into games in general (i've been playing over 20 years!) and have a 360, psp, ps1 and megadrive in addition to my newly bought ps3.
Oh yeah and i've actually been a student of Bunjinkan Ryu Ninjutsu - and i can tell you it's nothing like what Raven does!
See you online!

Hajimemashite, Manji Ninja-san, and welcome on board. I've also studied Bujinkan Ryu Ninjutsu, not very full-timely thought since the dojo is unfortunately far away.
Sit back and enjoy your stay.
Cool! Yeah i was a student in my teens, but then the dojo moved because the sports centre was closed. But i'd really like to try Kendo now.
More English users. Great!
Welcome to YOT.
Hello Manji Ninja
I hope you'll have great time here
Welcome to YOT but what is it like to be A a student of Bunjinkan Ryu Ninjutsu
It was awesome to be learning such a rare style! Karate, kickboxing and other "sport" martial arts dojo's are easy to find, so i was very lucky! But yeah taijustsu is a very natural style, and doesn't have any flashy kicks or anything too extravagant. The Ninja needed to kill or KO an opponent quickly and silently so there's a lot of grappling and locks ect. The stuff you see in games and films is nothing like the real thing! I got to use weapons too of course (ninpo)- staff's of different lengths, spears, swords and shuriken. Some videos of Bunjinkan style are about over the web, and even some grainy black and white japanese film of the master Masaaki Hatsumi himself. My working hours make it difficult to find a dojo to suit my lifestyle now unfortunately. I'm hoping to take up Kendo sometime though, if i can find a dojo.
Despite the fact that I call myself a ninja, the only martial art I study is Tang Soo Do. I do practice with swords, et cetera, on my own, however.
Anyway, welcome to the YOT forum.
