When I was young I wanted to be a Ninja.
I saw alot of tv in those days and loved....Loved action movies.
Especially martial arts movies....and most especially Ninja movies.
I wanted to be Sho Kosugi....the best ninja ever.
I would watch the movies over and over and imagine that I was a ninja and that no one would see me, I would imagine that I could things to people that picked on me.
I would buy martial arts magazines and in one of them I found....that Sho Kosugi had a Ninja shop in Monterey park.
On my birthday I made my mom and stepdad take me there and I bought some ninja gear.
I bought 2 Ninja stars,...one black and the other chrome and some disintegrating rice paper for my ninja notes (You put it in water and it turns to mush) and a mask (Of course) and some sleeves that cover the top of your hand(where you can hide your Ninja Stars) I lived in a Ninja Fantasy world.
I was thinking about this because I saw Kung-Fu Panda last nite and the Panda totally reminded me of me in those days......
I remember in the last days of Seventh Grade I showed everyone my dissintegrating paper and they thought it was awesome...and I even showed some kids my Ninja Stars...I even carried nunchucks under my members only jacket some times....talk about living in cartoon and movie land.
Luckily for everyone else I never had to use any of my weapons , cause I would of had the advantage being a Ninja and all. :)
And Now for your viewing pleasure....Sho Kosugi
