Actually it was recorded in ancient text that there was a hunchback, there was actually a real goat path. It probably did happen. Something defintly did go wrong in that battle.

Anyways ninjas operate best solo, and spartans don't really got shit unless theirs other spartans around him.

This is actually an intriguing argument, ive been wondering for some time.

Much better than that whole ninja-pirate thing, eh?

As for the spartans, while they were trained phalanx fighting, they would have trained in wrestling, and may have trained in pankration (am I spelling that right?), and would probably have learned soso battle tactics, especially since the challenges and single combat was so popular (at least according to Homer's Iliad).

Of course, they were using bronze weapons, so the ninjas would have a technological edge.

They would never come face-to-face even with a time machine-ninjas are assassins!
Ninjitsu pwns pankration btw. Pankration was a sport. Ninjitsu was for killing things.

I actually (serious now) read something about how the homeric heroes were completely fabricated, with the whole single-combat thing. Apparently the most pride was taken by simply staying in line in a phalanx.

I won't try, they might catch on and then we'd have an epic battle on our hands complete with pirates, ninjas, spartans and maybe even an iguanadon or two.

Oh yeah komodo dragons would beat them all up.

Then there's the samurai Miyamoto Musashi, who was reputed to have hunted Komodo Dragons.

This is going too far! :roll:

Panakration was a sport the was jui-jutsu is a sport -- only if you have somehone there to say stop. Historically, one of the first unarmed combattechniques, and possibly, throughthe travels of Alexander thee Great, one ofthe influences of indian martial arts (apropos of nothing, did you know that most of the Buddhas from a certain period in India and the region actually have faces modelled on look like Alexander the Great?)

And the ninjas would have to get past the ever vigilant Spartan guards first, who would spot them and their skulking, cowardly ways! Especially in the cover-lacking hills of ancient greece.

(And actually, there is some literature (I can't remember if it is greek or roman) decrying wrestlers and what a pain they are to tain properly in the arts of war. Can't remember which book I read that in.)


I actually (serious now) read something about how the homeric heroes were completely fabricated, with the whole single-combat thing. Apparently the most pride was taken by simply staying in line in a phalanx.

That is for the most part true. Though the great heroes may have existed, and while Troy certainly existed, the likelyhood of any part of the Iliad being from eye-witness account is pretty slim.

That said, there is evidence of some who fought alone. In fact, it was considered a sign of prowess to fight in the nude, which is not something one would do in a phalanx, I shouldn't think, as the armour and shield were an improtant part of the defense.

And yeah, the one whose phalynx stayed together was the one who won the battle.

And by the by you know the "ninja uniform?" that dude is wearing? Actually not. It's a stage manager's uniform from the kabuki theatre. First thought by westerners to represent ninjas because they would come in and steal away the dead.

Note: I think it's Kabuki. Might be Noh. Will have to check on that.

But not tonight. I'm tired now.

The Spartan's were very skilled and well-trained at Pancration. They also boycotted the Greek games (forerunner of todays Olympic games) because they were not allowed to attack their opponent's genitals or use any biting techniques. Remember these fights were bare-arsed naked!

Greetings,

Its a common misperception that the ninja relied on skulking around in the dark all the time. They relied on that method but [b]not[b] for moving around most of the time. The traditional shinobi had a variety of disguises that allowed them to move around during the day. Shichi-ho-de, or the seven ways of going, was a general overview of their ability to infiltrate and assassinate. The ninja would have known about the approach of the Spartans and laid traps along the way but they would not have waited until the camp was set before attacking.

I think the Spartans would have fell victim to the most dangerous ninja of all - the kunoichi.

In open battle the ninja would have suffered the same fate they met when they tried to meet the Samurai on even terms. Actually I think the samurai would have decimated the Spartans and the Persians.

One of the techniques I witnessed demonstrated involved a ninja with his hand tied chewing his opponents throat out because he had no other weapon. We are talking about a class of fighter willing to cut his own face off as a means of suicide.

Yeah, I've used that myself on occasion. The other guy let go fast. Works nicely.

And remember the Spartan motto was "Come home carrying your shield or on it." Ninjas aren't the only ones willing to tear out someone's throat with their teeth.

Samurai kick butt. They have guns. And horses. And higher-quality steel instead of bronze for weapons.

What you were saying about the kabuki I think is true, but I have seen Japanese woodcuts of assassins wearing hoods, etc. But ninja probably would not dress up in that rather obvious uniform to do a job. Most likely blend in, dress like a peasant or something.

Not sure, you usually just click on "add to cart". Sometimes stuff is listed on the site but is not in stock, in which case there is no "add to cart
" to click, it should say "
