“The most amazing blog for all things Ninja! As Sho Kosugi would say – If he didn’t visit Ninjas All The Way Down… He IS NO NINJA!” – Clive Townsend, creator of Saboteur!


What’s with the name?

This comes from the myth about the Earth being flat and resting on the back of a giant World Turtle propped up by a tower of larger and larger turtles. There’s a cosmological conundrum that poses the question of what the final turtle might be standing on. One answer is “Nothing! It’s turtles all the way down!” Studying ninja films is a little like that. You go deeper and deeper and it’s endless. Ninjas all the way down.

  1. I stumbled on your site after your American Ninja series review on Den of Geek. Allow me to pay my sincerest compliments.

    This may very well be the greatest site on the Internet. Your writing is superb, and your topic of choice — ninjas in pop culture — cannot be topped.

    The greatest school for ninjas in America (run by Stephen Hayes) is about 20 minutes from my house in Ohio, and you have no idea how disappointed I was to learn I cannot do half the things shown in American Ninja by attending the school. No matter.

    Please, for the love of all things ninjutsu, keep up the great work! I will now spend countless hours reading this site.

    • Heya,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this comment. It really means a lot to read that. Especially from someone who’s been to actual ninja school!

      Hope you keep on enjoying the site! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can hold you partially responsible for the existence of the blog in the first place so I’m delighted to hear you’re enjoying it. Words of praise from a bonafide 8-bit ninja master are all I could ask for. Thanks for the heads-up on the new version too! I’m intrigued by “Learn the full Saboteur story” – you mean there’s more to it than just nicking a floppy disk?! Can’t wait. I’m downloading it now!!!
