I’m not sure if they like it because they are wearing a head scarf or because they are tired of being suppressed and planning to fight back the country’s chauvinism, but it seems that thousands of Iranian women are training to become deadly ninjas!!
Considered to be the deadliest martial art in the world, the Ninjutsu school in Iran is already 23 year-old and counts 24,000 members, out of which 3,500 are women.
In this islamic country, like in may others, women have to respect stringent rules that are severely limiting their freedom (women are not allowed to drive or to touch penis shaped vegetables for example!)
Thats not half of, domestic violence has been a fire in every woman’s side and in Iran it doesnt seem like its slowing down. Is this why all these women are training? Do they use Ninjutsu to get rid off their inner frustration? Possibly.
One female instructor from the Iranian club says that practicing this challenging form of martial art helps maintaining a balance between body and mind, as well as teach respect and humility “They learn to respect themselves – first to respect their existence and then the art that they are mastering.” Students also learn to handle dangerous weapons like swords, bows and ninja stars.
Are we soon going to see Iranian Ninja movies? That would be cool!

Thanks to www.thezigzagger.com for the insight.
BTW Mr. Ahmadinejad, maybe you should have used these NINJA for Assassinations instead of your bumbling idiots who blow up their own leg.
