I decided to do some research on ninjitsu & the ninja, seems as though ninja still exist in this day and age despite the many times samurai tried wiping them out of history, I've found only a small handful of ninjitsu teachers/masters. Most think along the lines that ninja no longer flourish in the states but that isn't as true as most have thought. I've come across a very well put together website that has the basic teachings and very informative with how ninja live and train and how they really do go unseen there are many a way to elude even the best martial artist. though not so much was recorded in history still many of the ninja clans kept their secrets & history and only passed it on to those who could be trusted. With that said I'd like to see if anyone else would like to debate the ninja clans as they are a secret society onto themselves not much has ever been found in historical sites about them only what has been handed down through generations by word of mouth. Here is the link to the site I mentioned. Enter The Ninja

I've been a member of Bujinkan, the last surviving Ninjutsu clan with unbroken lineage, for the last 5 years. I don't know what information you're looking for but I'll be happy to share what I can with you and others who may be curious out the clan and Ninjutsu in general.

The recognised grandmaster of ninjutsu today is Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. He was awarded the title of grandmaster of the nine main arts of Ninjutsu, by the former grandmaster, To#sugu Takamatsu, the last real ninja. Hatsumi Sensei has said that he is only an instructor of the art, being a ninja is a profession. He has since created a martial arts orginazation called Bujinkan which teaches his art around the world.
His instuctor however did espionage work for the Japanese government in Mongolia and China in the early 1910's. Takamatsu sensei was also the last of the heriditary ninja's. As far as ninja clans today, I doubt that any of the traditional ninja clans still practice the art or are involved in ninjutsu. However, many of Hatsumi Sensei's students are involved with various intelligence agencies around the world, and in that sense, they could be considered ninja's. For more information, here are a few good websites

Te entertheninja site is a joke site, not a ninja club site or anything like that.

Also, ninja might not really be a secret society, its a martial art, and of course that requires training and initiation, but it doesn't seem to operate in any other way that a secret society like the masons, elks, pythians, etc do.

And for those interested in Ninja food and Ninja fast food delivery service employment (for those off times when your true Ninja calling isn't ... er ... calling.... )

www.ninjaburger.com...

Probably the second highest calling a Ninja can hope to be involved with.

I have been involved on various missions in which i am not in titled to talk about, you may not know my name or the clan which i am involved with, in saying i am sorry, but yes our clans are real but unfortunately no one will be able to find them, our sensei's are deceitful and will never speak the truth because punishment for info leakage is death. I will give one clue though and this is "Governments don't speak truth and are easily bribed" This is not some joke. I am no kid looking for attention so don't bother contradicting my words

Although what i said before may not make sense unless i explain why i am doing this, My secondary job within the clan is to go onto forums looking for such articles as this and tell the people's that we are fully operational so that they will stop looking and accept. Part of human nature is to accept what is fed to them, as i am feeding the forums info you are a different generation though but the choice is yours to believe, we are not as you call "old school" clans have developed into modern ways of operating but does not mean that we have deserted our tradition methods, in light of this i hope you understand and will stop wasting your time on something you will never find.

Yes we still exist but there is no need to fear except the case in which we want to kill you for money or revenge. Or for pure pleasure of seeing you die
! Anyway you will never see us. We may be right in front of you or right behind you but unless you want to become a ninja or you are a ninja you will never find us! If you need the help of a goodhearted ninja just go in the local park or the site of a ninja clan and just say NINJA! And if any ninja is not busy he will come!

Allow me to share a story I saw on the news the other night. This is in the central Texas area. Either Austin or San Antonio I forget.

Anyways.

A man who was dressed as a ninja carjacked some fellow in the wee hours of the morning as he was leaving for work. He was armed with a handgun and a Rifle. Reportedly after demanding the victims car the victim said " you must be kidding me" After that he was shot and his car stolen. The man was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

The Ninja was not apprehended.

So does this sound like a real ninja case to anyone or some kid on '___' living out a demented fantasy...either way I am not joking. This news story is only about 72 hours old.

If you really want to be a ninja, then get educated in school and join the intelligence community. If that is not what you want then join the military, score really high on your service examinations and get accepted into the
Special Operations Community.
I was an infantry scout for many years in the U.S. Army and that is about what you are looking at for a modern day ninja. Besides NINJA is a twentieth century term for Japanese commandos and intelligence agents in the Sengoku to Meiji periods of Japan.
Are there real ninja clans, yes there are. The Army Special Forces, British
Special Air Service , Israeli Commandos etc., etc... So that is about as real as you get.

My apartment complex has a quite infamous ninja. We don't know who he is, but he appears every now and then around 3 a.m. near our community pool. I once saw him scale the fence which surrounds the complex, which is quite a feat!


That story is true, but on the topic at hand, anybody who diligently learns a martial arts and makes it part of their life instead of a hobby, I applaud thee! It takes a truly dedicated person to stick with something throughout their lives.

one thing i'm wondering about is the traditional physical training involved. i.e. fitnes, endurance training. what are some of the traditional training excersizes handed down from generation to generation? are any of them used today? and are any ninjas psychic?

ninja clans are still very much active. although modern society has lessoned their dominance in culture, ninja clans are still recognized globally
