I used this instuctible to get the knife i used and this instructible to get the star i used

Step 2: Throwing the kunai

Picture of Throwing the kunai
lets see how to throw it...
throw #1 spinning: this one is pretty self-explanitory
hold the kunai and put it in the spot you feel most comfortable throwing it (for me it is over my shoulder) and throw it so that you let go when your arm is at a 45 degree angle and follow through.
throw #2 the drill: get your kunai to spin like a drill
set up so that your hand is at your thigh and bring it up and forward, it should spin like crazy
throw #3 the straight throw: this is how the real ninjas throw this stuff
you set it up the same as in #1 only this time you let go at a 90 degree angle and you don't follow through.

Step 3: How to throw a throwing star

This is how you throw a throwing star.
step1 you take the throwing star and hold it a little away from your body
step 2 now curl your hand in like your trying to touch your forearm with your hand
step 3 now spin it

Step 4:

The ending was harsh.. Siblings didn't do anything to him.... By the way man, you were throwing it like a frisby. WRONG written all over it!

Sorry man, but your shuriken throwing method is inaccurate. If your throwing a frisby, then that would work. I can't say anything about the kunai, I haven't studied that very much.
He was throwing he's shuriken like a frisby -_-
*his shuriken

the way you throw a shuriken is by holding it like your shooting a gun (theres other methods, but i like this one) and then you throw it. when you hold it like a frisky, it tends to loop and spiral. it also doesn't go very far when you throw it like a frisby.


oh… thx!


lol :P

The throwing method you use for the shuriken is accurate, but kunai were thrown like a knife, with a gentle "brushing" from the index finger, so that it flew point up until just before impact when it turned to horizontal. Other than that, great job! I love Ziggy. See my 'pigs below.

dude this really wouldn't work in real life i know ive been throwing knives and axes (and even a batarang) since i was little and this would probably completely fail with a real metal kunai or "shuriken"

Wrong. I'm sorry, but I'm guessing you're just a 13-year old Naruto fan (I can see that by the design of your paper kunai) who don't know anything about real ninjas. Naruto's pretty damn cool, and to tell you the truth I'm a pretty hardcore Naruto fan myself, but they are not real ninjas. Try searching for videos or books on shuriken or kunai throwing (I reccomend Suzuki Houzan's videos and books). I'm sorry dude, but this is just wrong. I have real kunais and shurikens and I've gotta say your method doesn't really work with metal knives and throwing stars. Oh, and FYI, those type of shuriken are called shaken or hira shuriken.
Since you throw metal, are you supposed to keep the blade straight or calculate how many times it spins before hitting the target? I want to learn to throw knives and might be getting some soon. 
well the masters calcuate by thinking if i throw it this hard and im this far away it'll spin this many times (it's not hard im 11 and i can do it it just takes practice) before it hits

I don't. Traditional kunais are not really for throwing, they are crude-shaped farming knives, and they are used more like a prying tool or a crowbar. I don't throw kunais, because I know they are really not meant to be used that way. I throw shurikens. My method of throwing it is by bending my knees and throwing it straight from my right arm. I'm not saying that my method is 100% correct, I'm not an expert on shurikenjustsu. Check out scottbaioisdead or HouzanSuzuki's videos on YouTube. Now THAT'S what you call shurikenjutsu experts.
