Japan: See Japan's first paid foreign ninja Chris O'Neill in action

Chris O'Neill, Japan's first foreign paid professional ninja, could be seen in action alongside his group of native combatants at Nagoya Castle in Nagoya, Saturday.
Due to his acrobatic skills, 29-year-old O'Neill was hired by a local tourist company in Japan's Aichi prefecture in to a bid to promote its ninja heritage and to attract tourists. Picked out of 235 applicants, he was required to possess various skills, ranging from the mastery of martial arts through hurling shurikens to performing backward handsprings.
The US citizen, who was based in Tokyo before, sees his job as "a rare opportunity," and a chance for like-minded people "from Germany, from the US, from France" to become ninjas.
