is Ninjutsu for me

Unlike Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and many other Arts, Ninjutsu is non-competitive. Ninjutsu is based on defense of self and others, and prizes humility, restraint, and evasion of conflict more highly than engagement in actual confrontation. Consequently, Ninjutsu teaches real-world, combat skills designed to protect when facing inevitable harm.

These skills embody the intricacies of distance, space, and time, and have been handed down from generation to generation by the first ninjas of Japan. For all these reasons and more, Ninjutsu is the most effective, pragmagic, and well rounded martial arts system in the world.

ESSENCE OF NINJUTSU

I believe that Ninpo, the higher order of ninjutsu, should be offered to the world as a guiding influence for all martial artists. The physical and spiritual survival methods eventually immortalized by Japan’s ninja were in fact one of the sources of Japanese martial arts. Without complete and total training in all aspects of the combative arts, today’s martial artists cannot hope to progress any further than mere proficiency in the limited set of muscular skills that make up his or her training system. Personal enlightenment can only come about through total immersion in the martial tradition as a way of living. By experiencing the confrontation of danger, the transcendence of fear or injury or death, and a  working knowledge of the individual personal powers and limitations, the practitior of ninjutsu can gain the strength and invincibility that permits enjoyment of the flowers moving in the wind, appreciation of the love of others,  and contentment with the presence of peace in society.


The attainment of this enlightenment is characterized by the development of the jihi no Kokoro, or “benevolent heart”. Stronger than love itself, the benevolent heart is capable of encompassing all that constitutes universal justice and that finds expression in the unfolding of the universal scheme. Born of the insight attained from repeated exposure to the very brink between life and death. Ninpo’s benevolent heart is the key to finding harmony and understanding in the realms of the spiritual and natural material worlds.


After so many generations of obscurity in the shadowy recesses of history, the life philosophy of the ninja is now once again emerging, because once again, it is the time in human destiny in which Ninpo is needed. May peace prevail so that mankind may continue to grow and evolve into the next great plateau.
