AaronLucia said:What Ryu did the Ninja Turtles train in?
I bet Splinter was Soke of the Rat Ryu.
Anyways, we all know a Ninja would use ANY weapon at his disposal, i just have never seen any actual training with them from the 'Ninja' crowd.
Does anyone know what Ninja Ryu might have used them with kata, etc?
Dunno... It was always my understanding that Ninjutsu was a Japanese art, and that Chucks were Okinawan... so while it would be fair to say some chucks might have ended up in "mainland" Japan, and possibly even seen by the ninja... it was more than likely a rarity, as opposed to a common weapon regularly trained in.
Nowadays, with all the "Ninja" schools cropping up like Dux, Kim, Tew, Bussey, etc... I'm sure they are widely practiced in that type of "Ninjitsu" because they are a common, and commonly recognized, weapon. So if you check some of those modern schools out, you would probably find a regular training routine with them.
