Learn how to handle any enemies you encounter with a quick 'ninja skills 101' session taught by Donatello. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are taught patience, precision and to use force as a last resort by Master Splinter. With this tutorial you learn how to stay calm, give your enemy a chance to retreat, be prepared and even how to properly celebrate your ultimate victory over evil. It's all in a day's work when you're a ninja turtle!
Show Off Ninja Turtles Muscle
The first lesson Donatello will teach you is to show strength while negotiating a truce in an effort to avoid the use of force. Rather than show excessive aggression, it is best to let your foes know that you are not afraid but also that you are not looking for a fight.
Get Your Ninja Turtle Weapons Ready
If the enemy continues to advance, your next step is to ready your weapon and assume an attack stance. Again, do not engage them as there still may be time to resolve things peacefully. However it is important to show that you are prepared to defend yourself.
Defend Youself with a Turtle Attack
If all attempts to avoid a fight have failed, now is the time to attack. Defend yourself with honor and protect the innocent people around you from harm.
Celebrate with a Ninja Turtles Pizza Party
After the battle, recover and celebrate with the preferred nourishment for ninja turtles... pizza! A good day's work deserves a good slice of hot cheese and pepperoni.
Ninja Turtle Weapons
If you are going to fight like a ninja turtle, you need to get your hands on the right equipment. Here a quick run down of each turtle's signature weapon and how they are used in fighting Foot Soldiers and the like. Don't get confused and grab the wrong weapon, it's important to recognize that each turtle has unique skills and therefore needs the right weapon to best match their abilities.
Raphael uses a pair of sai. Described as the resident bad boy of the TMNT, these weapons work well with his aggressive nature. There are several different blocks, strikes and captures that can be performed with these against attackers from all directions.
Michelangelo is the party guy who wields a pair of nunchuks, a traditional martial arts weapon that requires quick reflexes. Each weapon consists of two long sticks connected by a chain.
Leonardo is the leader of the ninja turtles and fights the good fight with a couple of katana swords. He is a good leader whose strong direction often has him at odds with Raphael.
Donatello's Bo Staff
Donatello is the smartest of the turtle gang and uses a bo staff in battle. He is more likely to use his brains than his brawn when able but in a pinch you can count on him to fight bravely.
Kids Ninja Turtles Costumes
If your kids are fans of the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, then we're willing to bet that these are the costumes they are looking for! In the 2014 and 2016 movies we were all reintroduced to this awesome fighting turtle team and got to see their appearances reimagined as well.

This is Raphael and usually when he's not mouthing off to Master Splinter he's out looking for trouble. He's got a bit of a temper but ultimately he'd do anything to protect his brothers.
Leonardo is decked out to fight and protect as leader of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Will he be able to keep April O'Neil safe?
If Donatello can, he'll solve the New York City's Foot Clan problem using technology and his genius inventions. And if that doesn't work, he'll fight along with the rest of the turtles to eliminate the threat.
Michelangelo is down with beating up the Foot Clan but still wants to flirt with April and eat plenty of pizza. Seriously if hearing Mikey sing "Happy Together" doesn't woo April, nothing will.
