[fan made] Ninja Assassin meets Battle of the Kings…

… in this wonderfully done music video tribute by Italian editor and YouTuber LEON1970.  What a great combination… Raizo footage and music by Audiomachine.  And the visuals make the very most of Raizo’s eyes, face, and form.  You can almost feel his angst yourself as it builds, and builds…  I am so digging this.

Awesome clip!  Just excellent.  Enjoy. 🙂

Aaaaand a BONUS:

This NA clip is only a minute long, and it’s during a rather quiet moment considering the rest of the movie… but it’s crystal clear, involves Mika and Raizo, and I found myself holding my breath as I watched it.  OMG, why were his hands tied right then?  (I mean I know why, but why?*head spinning*

*D’Angelo’s song “How Does It Feel?” flows through my mind*

Aaaaand a respectful bow to the ORIGINAL Badass: Master Sho Kosugi!  I could hug and kiss the person who put this video tribute together!

Not only has the legendary Sho-sama had an amazing 30-year career in action movies, he began martial arts training at the age of 4 and has been the Real Deal for 57 years.  He has his own training institute in Japan (that younger son Shane helps to run as older son Kane also went into action movies).  Sho-sama is the main reason I’m a ninja/samurai aficionado from waaaay back.  He and his sons don’t have to praise anyone, with what they’ve accomplished—and yet he praised Rain’s performance in their scenes together.  This man called JiHoon an amazing athlete, and grinned.  Wow.

This video delves into the best of Sho-sama‘s films (including Ninja Assassin!) and shows brief footage of him at his teaching best.  And I noticed, minutes 11:56 through 13:07 show handsome Kane battling daddy.  Haha.

God, this post is getting long!  LOL  But I can’t just not give a shout-out to Kane, who did this incredible take for the movie “Timeless.”  He’s one of the few martial artists in the world who were invited to study at the exclusive Shaolin Temple in China.  Like father, like son.  (He and Rain in an Expendables 2 would be the shiznit, y’all…!)

Okay… NOW I’m done. 😉

  4. Thanks for sharing these Stephe. I too consider myself a bit of a martial arts aficionado, and it’s nice to see there are others. Very Cool…! 😀


  5. Oh man, Kane Kosugi is hot and lethal!! Can you imagine Rain and Kane in Ninja Assasin II? That could be the ninja movie of the century!! Amazing the way Kane can flip over again and again. The first video on NA with the rock music was soo cool!!! I like it a lot. 😀


    • You said it, mari. But then again, he WAS trained by the best, ya know? 😀

      I’ve had my eye on both Kane and Shane for a while now, since they were little boys and co-starring on and off in Sho-sama‘s movies, and more recently in athletic competitions and Kane’s movies. They are very capable. And nummy.

  7. OMG!!! That scene of Raizo drinking water was the ONE SCENE that did it for me. I thought “damn this guy is soo sexy!!!” Also, the scene where he is cought with the electrical shock and his beautiful hair falls foward, I went “WOW, I love his hair!!” There I became a Rain’s Cloud forever. LOL Love ya Baby Rain!!!


    • I know right, and the way Mika looks at him while he’s drinking the water.

      Shame that they didn’t really have a love scene, hopefully in NA 2. 🙂
