“The Modern Ninja Woman”, by Mike Replogle- Fighting Stars Ninja February 1986 VOL. XIII, NO. 1
The women of ninjutsu assume their rightful place in the art.
THE MODERN NINJA WOMAN
With inflation spiraling upward and the growing predominance of two-income families, she finds it’s no longer enough to be a mother of two, with a daughter attending college in Paris and a 16-year-old son at home. Now she also sells computer software, and does very well, thank you. She works hard, and successfully competes in a “man’s world.”
So where does the “American woman” spend her free time? Where does she play, relax, vacation? The Bahamas? Mexico? Hawaii?
This particular American woman packs her heels, workout clothes, gym shoes and makeup, makes sure the neighbor kid will water the plants and feed the dog, and spends a week sweating, rolling, punching, throwing, dodging and generally having fun in the Ohio countryside learning and practicing the warrior art of ninjutsu from Stephen K. Hayes.”
