Schools For Dudes

Private Ninja Lessons ($195 per class) Thank goodness these are private — can you imagine if the death-dealing arts were taught in public classrooms? This New York-based Bujinkan school is run by a certified Shidoshi (a teacher of warrior ways) and deals with combat survival techniques as well as ninja history and philosophy. The curriculum includes leaping, rolling, striking, grappling, choking, throwing, and the use of weapons. As the school's literature states, ninjutsu is one of the only martial arts “undiluted by emphasis on sport competition or artificial rules.” In other words? All asskicking, all the time. *GONG!*
