Sydney, Australia: Ninja's to the Rescue!

File this under the "does it get any cooler than this" section.

On May 20, 2010, the Sydney Morning Herald in Sydney, Australia reported that a 27 year-old German medical exchange student was viciously assaulted by muggers.  That might not have been a story that would have caught many eyes had it not been for the student's unlikely rescuers:  ninjas.

Yes, you read that right, ninjas.  The student was being mugged in an alleyway adjacent to a ninja warrior school, Ninja Senshi Ryu.  Kaylan Soto, the school's sensai instructed his students to confront the muggers attacking the German student.  The students, in full black ninja garb did so and have become hero's in Sydney.

First, I have to say this is super cool.  Ninjas! 

Second, can you imagine what went through the muggers minds when they saw all of these black-garbed ninja warriors heading for them?  I'm sure that next time they decide to mug some poor soul they will be sure to pay special notice that they aren't around a ninja warrior school! 

Kudos to Sensai Soto and his students for teaching the muggers a lesson they hopefully will not forget anytime soon.

You can read a bit more about this at Yahoo! News.  There's a photo of three of the green belt ninja warriors from the Ninja Senshi Ryu on The Province.com web site.
