Would-be muggers in Australia thwarted by ninjas – This Just In - CNN.com BlogsA group of would-be muggers in a Sydney, Australia, met their match Tuesday night in the form of black-clad ninjas.
The three stalked and attacked a German exchange student, 27, in a dimly lit alley that fortunately for the victim ran behind the Ninja Senshi Ryu warrior school, according to an Australian Broadcasting Corp. report.
Ninja student Nathan Smith was standing in the shadows outside the dojo when the attackers set upon the victim and quickly called for help from his classmates inside, according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Sensei Kaylan Soto and three other students in full ninja gear quickly responded.
"We looked around to see what was happening and there were three blokes on this guy just kicking him and punching him in the head," he told the ABC.
"We started running towards them and they took off. They would have seen five of us in ninja gear ... all in black with our belts on, running toward them.”
The ninjas gave chase but could not catch the assailants.
Police told the ABC they arrested two male suspects, ages 16 and 20, and are looking for a third. Their intended victim suffered only minor injuries.
Ninja Steve Ashley told the Herald the assailants must be lamenting their luck.
"It was probably the worst place in Sydney where they could have taken him,” he said.

There's always the police department....And I think it was more the crowd of people and not the black belts that scared the men off."It was probably the worst place in Sydney where they could have taken him,” he said.

Real ninjas would've caught them. Just sayin'...
When I read the title NINJAS TO THE RESCUE, I almost didnt want to read the story... Must have made an interesting memory for the would be muggers.

If your head is up your *$$ you are unaware of danger. You are in the perfect position to kiss it goodbye.

They attempted a mugging of a martial arts student outside a packed martial arts dojo? Smooth.
That Do-jo wasn't near a mall, was it?

My Sensei just e-mailed me this funny news story . Real ninjas, Gecko must be jealous.
There truly are "real" Ninja's, not just the Hollywood version.
Stephen K. Hayes is one, he was the first American to achieve Ninja status by studying with them in Japan.
It was good that these practitioners of the art of Ninjitsu came to the rescue.

yep just leave it to Hollywood to destroy the mere word ninja.
The history of the ninja is very interesting. From poor starving farm peasants to taking out highly trained Samari.
As for the story...
I can't imagine what was going through the minds of the 2 guys running after a victim only to be ambushed by ninjas.... who woulda thought?
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Remember Wax on...wax off

I wonder if they will tell their cell mates they were stopped by ninjas?
