Gotta love the upside-down cross on the second photo (the linked word Nuns in the OP, that is).

Ninjas who look like nuns.

Awesome! That last picture rules.

Just a bit of Catholic pedantry: these are sisters, not nuns. Nuns live within a cloister.

That's sweet.

It's not really Karate they're practicing, is it? I thought it's Tae Kwon Do? Am I wrong? I just thought that I saw a Taegeuk in the background.

I bet I could take 'em though.

Oda Nobunaga versus Warrior-Monks of Mount Hiei, 1571.

"There are three things that I have absolutely no power upon," Emperor Go-Shirakawa said in 1170's; "1. Dice, 2. The flow of the river Gamo, 3. Warrior-monks of Mount Hiei."
