    Don't ever believe the "ancient" way of throwing stars. By this I mean holding the star between your 1st & 2nd fingers at the knuckles and throwing in an overhand motion. My best buddy did that and embedded a star (home made) into his own leg. Slashed right down his muscle next to his shin. :D :D :D
    Gotta watch that follow through. This doesn't tell you how to throw one, but I think that knowing how NOT to throw one is every bit as important.

    As Kung Lek was saying...

    throw them like a frisbee, throw them like a playing card, throw them like a dart...

    Very some such, perhaps might have been, likely say some, some not.

    jerk back like your hand hit something hot to add spin. Its all about spin. Frisbee is the best.

    Your friend had bad coordinatin or timing, the method might still be good. Don't let incompetance sway you from a technique...unless you are the incompetant one.

    what you are reffering to is called a shuriken, they can be a lot of fun for target practice how ever real ones are extremly hard to find, they are hand made from surgical steel 880 steel with razor sharp points I have one made by nakura a famous sword maker from japan that I paid $187.00 for . The ones available in this country are stamped alloy and can be bent with your hand, they are crap and mostly used by kids. If you want real shurikens look online you might find some but make sure they are hand made.

    $187?! Holy ****e. I know a guy that can make 9 for $60 or something, he makes them the way Stephen Hayes does. I was under the impression that "legit" (meaning old ones that ninja really used) weren't sharp on the edges... how would they carry them otherwise?

    I don't even think shuriken were used for fighting really... more like they were thrown into walls to distract the enemy while escaping.

    Other people have said that they would poison the tips and then if you got hit you'd get tetanus (rust poisoning), but how would you carry it then without it getting on you?

    I wish the ancient ninja masters had kept better records of what they do, that way we wouldn't be so confused. Hehe :)

    Back in the day, when ninja's were the pimp Sh!t, medicine was so bad that rust was just as deadly as anything else. Oh, and they kept them in small leather pouches, like the ones cops keep handcuffs in, or on a belt. :D

    Chinese Stars, Are really cool.
    However stars are easy to use,you should try throwing knives or Straight shuriken.

    Remeber Bruce Lee in "Return of the dragon" with those wooden darts?

    My brother and I used to make all kinds of crazy ninja weponry when we were kids even caltrops. My Grandpa had a metal shop and tought us how to make... Swords! I just rememered the crazy sword I made.
    I bet its still at my Gramps.

    Funny how I still love all that Ninja sh!t.

    He has a book out that shows how to throw stars. A good addition for the library and to learn espionage ninjitsu.

    You might also want to get your hands on Michael Echanis' "Knife Fighting, Knife Throwing For Combat (Special Forces/Ranger-UDT/Seal/H2H Combat/Special Weapons/Special Tactics Series)

    Not easy to find, but some good stuff on throwing there.

    I second the Hatsumi book. Pananandata Knife Throwing by Amonte P. Marinas Sr. is good as well.

    What does shuri mean of shuriken? What does ken mean of shuriken?

    What is something called shaken?

    Very some such, perhaps might have been, likely say some, some not.

    throwing daggers are cooler! I think it was the samurais that used "spikes", about a fore-arm long of steel. about 1 kg :eek: they could penetrate armor like a knife through butter :D (yeah they threw them)
