comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
@CuinnWylie: No problem; I have a personal issue with things being explained in metaphysical terms when purely physical and logical explanations will suffice.

comment Do ninja follow the bushido?
Since I feel that @Sardathrion did an excellent job of nailing some of the major points with his answer, I won't detract from them by posting my own. I will add that the Shoninki admonishes the ninja of Kishu-ryu from being amoral or dishonorable, reminding them that they are not thieves or murderers, but that they serve a purpose. It's not that some ninja weren't "bad guys", but this is true of all groups in society, even the supposedly moral and just samurai. Much of their perceived morality stems from their rank under confucianism.

comment Does ninjutsu qualify as a martial art?
@michelemarcon: As would I. There's quite a bit of misunderstanding surrounding ninja.

comment Going up on the ball of the foot for a front snap kick
Interesting. I'm curious to see if there's a reason for the differences. My shidoshi used to kick our feet out from under us if we raised up on the ball during a kick...
