We have a ninja alert here in Tyler, Texas that we thought you should know about.

Ronin is a self-taught ninja who was showcasing his skills in Academy Sports and Outdoors in Tyler earlier this week. I spoke with Ronin's parents - Justin and Hayley Russell - who posted a video of their boy's martial arts prowess on Facebook.

The parents told me they really don't know what started the need for the ninja moves, but they were certainly enjoying the show. Ronin was also 'in character' because when he was finished he told his mom and dad:

OK guys, I'm just Ronin again.

In the words of his parents, "He is a precious mess of a child."
