The Art of Ninjutsu

There are many Depictions of where when and what is ninjustu by looking into them all we can see what  this art truly is and how it derive from nature and is used in our own nature and life.

Ninjitsu comes from a time when survival was an art and was a union with nature. Ninjutsu is also said that it has no “founded here” point in history, but through a deeper understanding of Japanese history references can be made to appreciate.

According to historians, there is a chapter at the end of the Sonbu no heiho the famous Sun Zi, author of  “Art of War” (6th century BC) that contains the fundamentals of Ninjutsu. Was Ninjutsu the martial art that made the teachings of Sun Zi about deception and invisibility possible?

Others believe that when the  immigrants began to arrive in Japan from China and Korea, the styles of kenpo (Chinese martial art using bare hands and weapons), and genjutsu (techniques of illusion and conjuring) were mixed with the local techniques of Japan. Among these immigrants were warrior monks and military personnel that settled in mountainous areas where they met the yamabushi (hermits of the mountains). These mountain hermits, warrior monks, and ascetics used early forms of Ninjutsu. It was in this time that these yamabushi developed the mysterious and supernatural persona of the ninja we know today. Even though these warriors remained separated from society, many senior government officials and warrior families maintained close relationships to these yamabushi who, at times, carried out jobs that needed to be kept secret.


 and those who where elite and privileged. Yet the art of the common man which derive from earliest times and grow and evoled was taught in seceret without regconition was pass with was known as ninjustu in later times.  

In the 6th century BC, the Sonbu no heiho contained early Japanese military strategy. It was made up of teachings from the famous Sun Zi, author of  “Art of War” (6th century BC), Se Ma (same period), and Zi (3rd century BC). According to historians, there is a chapter at the end of this book that contains the fundamentals of Ninjutsu. Was Ninjutsu the martial art that made the teachings of Sun Zi about deception and invisibility possible?

Grand master Ashida Kim of the black dragon society defines , The purpose of Ninjitsu is to preserve the ancient knowledge and pass it on to future generations. This has been true since its inception, which can be traced back to the Pole Star School of China. There is reference of ninjustu that can be traced to paletos age.

Dr. Kacem Zhoughari  Defines Ninjutsu, or ninpo, is a collection of adaptable survival techniques that allows one to face the uncertainties of life and to respond to dangerous situations, through physical and psychological discipline, where one uses orthodox weapons in unorthodox ways. –



When we look at the word Ninjutsu, the first character “Nin,” read Shinobi or Shinobu means to apply one’s thought’s, ego, and heart to the edge of the sword. The second character “jutsu” simply means technique. By eradicating the ego, your will is made iron throughout the discipline of knowing that if you act in an egotistic or unreasonable way the blade will cut you. One must learn to be still and remain pure though many winds will come to sway you from the blade.

A great Ninjutsu practitioner waits until the most opportune time, then exploits that opening from all directions yet still remains flexible and strong. The ninja can stop danger coming a mile away and adapt to it by acceptance and response. The way of the ninja exists for survival, they endure very hard times, even ridicule, and persecution waiting for the right time to strike, wasting no energy or resources.

In order to understand the history of Ninjutsu or the ninja, one has to totally release these terms as they only represent how we currently see Ninjutsu.

The Ninja possess mental powers of an informational, offensive, or defensive nature; but it is only during the latter stages of training that these techniques actually become effective in hand-to-hand combat. That is to say, after much practice one is able to defeat the enemy without physical contact. By that time, the student has mostly transcended motives that would land him in a situation where these paranormal powers would be warranted.

 Ninja mysticism may take many forms. The simple form makes it possible to deflect negative vibrations and defend oneself against psychological assault merely by maintaining one’s emotional balance.

The more complex forms require mantras, somatic components, and elaborate rituals for maximum efficiency.

 The individual must first determine the methodology of his or her own psychological thought forms or constructs.

 Since one of the primary attributes of the spy has always been a good memory, most agents have never written down their techniques, although some tora-maki, or sacred scrolls, do exist. Through the study of the mind, the Ninja hopes to gain wisdom and become a man of knowledge. As such, he attains an almost spiritual level of dedication to his art, which confers upon him a high degree of skill at arms. Many such accomplished Ninja are known by the eternal symbols they have adopted to signify their quests, but in time even these are put aside.

Mental Ninjutsu Training

Ninja put just as much stress on the spiritual and mental aspects of ninjutsu training as they did on purely physical action. They had to have their wits about them at all times and work out complicated problems on the spot. They learned to sharpen their perception and insight, developing their instincts to a point that seemed almost superhuman.

Heishichiro Okuse — perhaps the foremost authority on ninjutsu and the author of four books — wrote his last work on the subject, Hidden Ninjutsu: The Secret Thoughts and Strategies of the Ninja. According to him, they regarded nothing as impossible and scientifically applied brain power to every problem they encountered. He regards the nonphysical aspects of ninjutsu as the key to a successful career.

When you obtained this book, it was because you were in search of occult power. It has been

said, however, that no one may find such power without personal instruction from one skilled in

the dark arts, and that is so. So how may we contact these secret teachers-if, indeed, we wish to

pursue this quest? The answer is simple: we must follow their example.

True knowledge endures without regard for the sands of time, and the immutable laws of the

universe carry each of us to our fate, whether we take notice or not. There are many paths to

the Universal Mind, the Cosmic Consciousness. One may follow the Eightfold Path and grow;

or one may embrace the Way of the Spiritual Devotee. All paths lead to the dwelling place of

Vishnu, who knows all, sees all, and tells all. At this level of mind, anything is possible.

If we seek to become one with Nature, then, and to experience communion with this All-Wise

Consciousness, we must concede that we conceive of it as being “outside” of ourselves. At that

point we feel loneliness, which causes us to seek the counsel of others. Most people are motivated

by self-interest, however; there are those who would take advantage of this motivation.

So finally we are left completely abandoned. Every living being passes through this test of selfdoubt

“I have no friend; I make my mind my friend.” These words are taught in Zen meditation and

are part of the Japanese creed of the samurai.
