If you read my post on the Master, and you nodded knowingly as you remembered the good times watching the cheesy series back in the day... Then you probably also remember Movie Ninja Sho Kosugi!
Sho Kosugi was THE movie ninja through the 80's, and he had a huge impact on the popular cultures perception of the stereotype. He could fight anybody: other ninja, commandos, golfing mobsters, midgets, amazons... You name it. He always won.
And he never once flipped out...
Even his kid was badass.
