    Stalking is a strong word.

    To be fair, I was here first.

    So you'd be the one stalking your poor friend.

    Your western expectations are the problem. Find one of those "ninja warrior" training courses!

    Bless your heart.

    I can imagine that being a real and serious thing, but I can't stop picturing wannabe ninjas signing up for one of those classes.

    At the end of the class, I imagine them getting a ninja outfit as a graduation present.....

    Speaking of ninjas and slightly back on topic, for anyone interested I found an XMA/tricking/breakdancing gym in Tokyo that has open gym time on Friday nights. Previously I was going to Shinjuku Sports Centre and training on the slightly bouncy judo mats but this place has actual gymnastics plyo flooring. I've been trying to find a place like this for the past 4 years - no gymnastics gym I've ever found in Japan has open gym time.

    I live two hours out of Tokyo, but its not a bad trip to make after work on fridays, so if you're in Kanto area come join if you wanna learn some flips, flying kicks, parkour, breakdancing, ninja jutsus etc.

    Here's the site:

    no no no, the only true way to learn how to dance is to stand outside a shop window and dance in front of it using the windows reflection.......

    This isnt dancing, this is srs biznes. Life and death stuff here. Flying kicks that may or may not be useless in a real fight. Ninjas need to train in a secret ninja fortress and this is the closest equivalent near a decent train line. Come join, everyone is friendly and no one will care if you bring your naruto headband.

    I don't know about the rules, generally I pretend there are none, but I do know it's irritating. I feel like my adblock is failing me.

    I don't mind it, but the image is hella low res. As far as I can tell thejetcoaster is the perfect place to go for Guidos, Blog, Veeqs, Poocasi and Gummity.

    Yellow Poocasi is one thing but white girls are nasty. You can ride the Jet Coaster straight to brown town
