The ninja community has latched onto a good number of our favorite sources of entertainment. The practice of ninjitsu has reached the teenage mutant turtle race, the works of Quentin Tarantino, and bored iPad owners with a strange animosity for fruit items. But G.I. Joe: Retaliation looks to reign supreme as contemporary pop culture’s leading authority on the age-old martial art.
The below clip from the upcoming movie features a ninja faceoff that would call envy from the likes of Colt and Tum-Tum. Featured is Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee) coming to blows with a fellow masked fighter, trading kicks, jagged stars, and razor sharp swords in their mountaintop battle.
