My understanding is that Fujita Seiko IS the last Koga Ninja. Anyone with compelling evidence to the contrary please advise of the research material(s) and photographs etc, and documentation that CAN be verified as reliable and authentic. Anything short of this is unsubstantiated given so many people claim all sorts of things nowadays. Ninja's ARE a closed world to civilians; hence my understanding is that IF they still exist only those in these circles (Military) will know.

Myself I hold 8 black belts; I startsd Judo at the age of 6 and that was my first black belt ranking tben I went to some Korean styles and studied 1) Tang Soo Do 2) Tae Kwon Do 3) Hapkido. Korean technique's are all pretty similar so crossing over was fairly easy, just having to learn various technique's that weren't taught, this was more so in Hapkido than the other two.

After that I went to Isshinryu, Bujinryu, Shotokan. Again all very similar in technique and yet again I had to learn the various techniques I didn't know. Some weapons, katas, hand techniques, then gained my ranking in those.

Then my last one I only received my Brown Belt i was Kenpo, it wasn't all what I expected as I gained ranking so I moved on. I am current working on gaining my belt in Arnis through GM Andy Sanano.

If styles are very similar or I have someone come to me from another style and claim to have a Black Belt I do my research and if they do, then I will either one see what level they are with my style and promote them to that level or they start from the beginning.

I don't think there is any way to avoid a premeditated murder Jackie.

In this case it sounds like the murderer was pretty arogant about it in that he did it with a gun from close range (I think that's what your describing but I havn't watch the video... I'm also not sure I want to it sounds grim.)  So in this case someone may have been able to stop him if they had a gun they could draw quickly.  

However in general if you or I or anyone else wants to kill someone they will just do it.  You just pick up a kitchen knife run and stab.  Or a gun, or any other sharp object will do.  

Weapons are just that powerful.

True to Form
Like many other martial arts, Modern Arnis has forms (kata) - we call them "anyos". We have forms with a weapon, and forms that are empty hand.  There are four (well, technically five, when you string them together) weapons anyos, and ten empty hand anyos. ...
