Every episode has at least 4 experts in each episode, at least 2 per warrior. Most ancient experts are stunt men who have recently appeared in famous Hollywood movies. Some of the modern warrior experts are professional gunmen, former special ops, relatives of the modern warriors, or the actual warrior that they represent on the show (i.e. Spetsnaz soldiers as Spetsnaz experts or SWAT officers as SWAT experts).

Michael LehrEdit

"So, to truly understand the strength of the ninja, you had to see how they evolved. They didn't start out as warriors. They started out as farmers, villagers, peasants - the lowest of the low. Like most people, they sought independence, but at the time, Japan was ruled by feudal warlords and the military class the samurai - very tough, very well-trained fighters. In a fair fight, the farmers and villagers really didn't stand much of a chance, so when they had to fight, they just didn't fight fair." [6]
