Thousands of Iranian Women Are Training to Become Ninjas

Is that a woman dressed in a burka or ninja gear? Perhaps we shouldn't be suprised to find that thousands of Iranian women are now training to become ninjas.

From Oddity Central:

The Ninjustu school in Iran was started in 1989 by Sensei Akbar Faraji. This was the first time the martial art was introduced to the country. While the club now has over 24,000 members, the number of female participants is slowly on the rise. According to Faraji, in Ninjutsu, men are called ninjas, while women are addressed as kunoichi.

This is simply the coolest thing ever. We must immediately make peace with Iran! This whole nuclear thing has been a distraction. Israel and the US are worried about a nuclear Iran... meanwhile they have 24,000 ninjas. Well played. Even during the U.S. peak ninja power in the 80s, I doubt we rivaled Iran's current ninja reserves.

Awesomeness critical level reached.

Please calmly make your way to the nearest exit point and hug a kitten.

...then slash him, quit job, and be a ninja.
