Ninja Life is officially becoming a thing of the past for the birthplace of ninja....Iga, Japan. The younger generation is seeking different opportunities in larger cities and leaving the roots of Iga in the past. You might think that's the right move...but hey. Being a ninja isn't that bad of a lifestyle if done correctly according to journalist Sally Herships;
"This job does have a lot to offer," Herships explains. "First of all, the pay is quite competitive. Today, ninjas can earn anything from $23,000 to about $85,000 — which is a really solid salary, and in fact, a lot more than real ninjas used to earn in medieval Japan."
I've always been a big fan of the Karate Kid...and now I'm being told I can go BECOME THE KARATE KID and get paid to do it. The only knock for me is that they aren't offering online classes...yet. If they do, I'm 100% in on becoming a ninja from the comfort of my own apartment.
