    I am trying to imagine an acrobatic ninjutsu champion for my Game Idea: The Art Of Martial Can anybody suggest a ninja who can portray ninjutsu in an agile and exciting way?

    No such thing as a ninjutsu champion, and in general real ninjutsu doesn't have the kind of acrobatic visual flair that you might be looking for in a video game.

    Ninjutsu isn't particularly acrobatic
    Rolls, break falls yes & more than most styles, but it's pretty light on acrobatics and more about striking, grappling and weapons
    So maybe look for a capoeira guy?

    Funny thing about ninjas, if you knew who the champion was he'd be a terrible ninja.

    Only if I get a KickStarter for the Game Idea.

    That depends on how it's practiced. We have very little scientific knowledge of what ninjutsu was, so martial arts are free to add anything they want to the style.
    If only he is young

    If more than ninjutsu practitioners one can represent the style in a more subtle way. Already have ideas for capoeira practitioners.

    That made me laugh out loud!

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean here - any chance you could explain a bit more?

    With my grammatical errors no wonder. What I mean is that the Game Idea can take into account multiple motion capture actors who practice ninjutsu. One can represent it more accurately. Another can represent it in a more showy way.

    How would you do the motion capture?
    Maybe I can point you to someone local to you who has good movement....

    So far it's just a Game Idea. I would have to research the companies who make motion capture to be able to hire one, and I would have to research how recruitment efforts are done if the idea gets a KickStarter. Currently I live in Northern California near San Francisco.

    Once again funny!
