    Von Donk & DeCuerdas Eskrima?
    By ArmorOfGod - 03-07-2011 11:19 AM


    Richard Von Donk has been a recognizable name in the ninjutsu and Hatsumi Sensei circles for years. He is now promoting an eskrima program on his site (see above link).

    Is this legit? Has anyone heard of the late grandmaster he trained under?

    I'm rather leary of anyone claiming an authentic ancient ninjutsu lineage. I've done a little searching due to the fact that once upon a time I thought ninjas were awesome. Current "ninjutusu" systems may have some value but the fact that they are based on a concieved Hollywood archetype makes me uneasy. I know nothing about the FMA credentials but if he is already associated with something I consider questionable I'd be careful.
