DOJO was the secret pupil of a Ninja master in hiding and was taught how to utilize the secret combat techniques using chain and sickle, three section staff, sai, and throwing dirk. Impressed with Dojo's unbeatable skills and immutable integrity, STORM SHADOW persuaded him to join the G.I. Joe Ninja Force. The most talkative of the Ninja Force fighters, Dojo believes that a steady patter disrupts the thoughts of the opponents, setting them up for his surprise "Lightning Strike" maneuver. He can often be seen driving the G. I. Joe Brawler.
Motto: "I hope you all came here for the FIGHT, because that's what I'm here for!"
Toy Notes: With the exception of some variants, Dojo has tabs on his torso to keep it from pivoting, and his right arm has spring-loaded chopping action. Item #6732. May have been available in some areas before Christmas 1991 but first listed in the 1992 insert catalog.
