Ninjutsu (忍術) is the martial art, strategy, and tactics of warfare as well as the art of espionage purportedly practiced by the shinobi (commonly known outside of Japan as ninja). Ninjutsu was more an art of tricks, than a martial art. Ninjutsu was a separate discipline in some traditional Japanese schools, which integrated study of more conventional martial arts along with the eighteen disciplines.


CharacteristicsEdit

Ninja jūhakkei ("the eighteen disciplines") was often studied along with Bugei Jūhappan (the "eighteen samurai fighting art skills"). Though some are used in the same way by both samurai and ninja, other techniques were used differently by the two groups. Ninja fought in the lack of space.

The 18 disciplines are:

  • Seishinteki kyōyō – spiritual refinement
  • Taijutsu – unarmed combat
  • Kenjutsu – sword techniques
  • Bōjutsu – stick and staff techniques
  • Sōjutsu – spear techniques
  • Naginatajutsu – naginata techniques
  • Kusarigamajutsu – kusarigama techniques
  • Shurikenjutsu – throwing weapons techniques
  • Kayakujutsu – pyrotechnics
  • Hensōjutsu – disguise and impersonation
  • Shinobi-iri – stealth and entering methods
  • Bajutsu – horsemanship
  • Sui-ren – water training
  • Bōryaku – tactics
  • Chōhō – espionage
  • Intonjutsu – escaping and concealment
  • Tenmon – meteorology
  • Chi-mon – geography
