Sho Kosugi

“Sho Kosugi rode the 80’s ninja craze to stardom in aptly named movies like Enter the Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja, Ninja III: The Domination, 9 Deaths of the Ninja, well, you get the idea. But after the ninja craze died, Kosugi vanished from the martial arts scene, much like the lone ninja characters he portrayed.” –James Hom

Where are they now?

“Kosugi reemerged briefly in 1996 to capitalize on yet another martial arts craze: martial arts as aerobics. “Ninjaerobics” had all the elements of a successful aerobics TV show: great locations (the show would travel to famed martial arts sites around the world), plenty of spandex-clad, super-fit models, and star power (Kosugi himself). Unfortunately, the show never took off, and Kosugi disappeared back again into the ether.” –James Hom

    Sho Kosugi is my martial arts hero next to Bruce Lee. Growing up I must admit that I was a bit immature to learn Chinese was of martial arts. Sho Kosugi gave me that push start that I needed. I started off learning Japanese way of fighting. As I grew up I’ve learned other styles but then resort back to Kosugi. Its funny….Kane Kosugi and I are the same age and became my motivation. You all remember 9 deaths of a ninja,revenge of the ninja and Pray for Death. Again Sho Kosugi is my Martial arts hero.
