Shô Kosugi starred in some of the worst ninja movies of the 1980's. On the backs of a few of the movies, Shô is called "the world's last true Ninja Master", even though we all know that Japan hasn't produced ninja since the feudal period. He was born in Tokyo, and studied there in various martial arts until he moved to the good ol' U. S. of A. to make it big in the movie industry. He is credited with such works as Enter the Ninja (Ninja I), Revenge of the Ninja (Ninja II), Ninja III: The Domination, Master Ninja, Pray for Death, Ninja Terminator, Nine Deaths of the Ninja, Rage of Honor, Black Eagle, Aloha Summer, Blind Fury, Kabuto, Journey of Honor, and played the voice of Ultraman in the TV series Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero. Even today, he's still kicking out wonders of filmography like Tenchu: Stealth Assassins (1998).
