Attend a Ninja Academy in Tokyo
Ninjas have a storied and secretive history in Japan, and this is one of the few opportunities for westerners to not only learn about Ninjas, but also learn their art and practice with their weapons. The instructors are Ninjas who have retired from active work, and now teach and often act in movies, but with a wide variety of fascinating backgrounds, including serving as undercover guards for heads of state (including US Presidential families). It is fascinating, but also mentally and physically exhausting... but worth every drop of sweat!
