I Must Remember to Watch American Stories This Sunday

Cause I want to know if Richard wore a black ninja uniform while filing this report on last week's American Stories. He's goofy enough to wear the hood, at least.

QUEST (on camera): Hello. James Bond may have a license to kill, but years before 007 came along, there was another group that were also licensed for assassination and sabotage, the ninjas. Shrouded in secrecy, the appearance of these mysterious assassins usually meant the end of the line for someone, or at least a very nasty fight. Now, they're not the sort of people you and I want to meet in a dark alley, but what if you could learn to be a ninja?

(voice-over): There is one place you can pick up a tip or two. Welcome to Japan's notorious ninja house. The local ninjas will give you a little insight in to how to swing the swords, how to throw with ninja style. And, if you want, good old marshal arts are thrown in too. All, of course, you need is the airline ticket to Japan and you're on your way.
