Yes Ninjas exist.
They can appear to fly, or vanish. Ninjitsu is an interesting art, stealth, deception, killing silently, all sounds nifty. Not exactly magic, but
the martial arts can seem pretty superhuman if you're not familiar with the mechanics. Just like David Blaine or Copperfield, if you don't know how
their magic works, it's..well..magic.
Another example, if you're not familiar with Aikido, seeing a master training with his students might seem like a screening of the incredible hulk.
People flying every which way, upside down, sideways, meanwhile the guy defending himself against the mob looks relaxed enough to be drinking a
cappucino, sort of bobbing silently with a serene look on his face.
It seems pretty ubelievable when you see it for the first time, like something out of the Matrix, or Kung Fu Hustle. But once you understand some of
the theories being applied, the miracle is demystified.
The same is true with Ninjitsu.
