Hellow, I've heard that theres a secret ninja society where ninjas, seemingly superhuman beings train and complete missions. This may seem like a complete fantasy but it still may be as possible as alliens existence. Ninjas are meant to be so secret that most of the world knows only 1% because of some backstabber long ago. I am not assuming anything, I am just thinking it may be possible. I am not good at posting to the point so you might think I'm am not serious and this is completely made up but this is what I heard. Anyone heard of ninjas in the modern world? They are just like normal humans when outside.

I dont know just post your theories or any information on here and please dont start a debate on this article, this is just for the sake of theory.

A Ninja is someone who is trained in the arts of Ninjitsu, it's still being practiced so yes there is Ninja's around.

Stealthy Assasins? I'm not sure, but it's quite possible they are part of criminal/government organizations that are involved in liquidation of unwanted individuals, but they probably use more modern things like silenced firearms and such

I think someone has seen the (rather good) Batman Returns film too many times. The plot in this involves ninjas plotting the downfall of decadent cities throughout history. I'm not sure if it is based on a true story though....

Ninja-ninjitsu is just a form of marshall arts.
There is only so much a human being can physically and possibly do.Its not real like crouching tiger films etc where people are flying about etc
they can train and have quick reflexes and heightenened physical abilities,but they cant fly or disapear or anything.
As for the assasins bit,people will always employ highly trained killing machines to do thre dirty work.

Hey FatherLukeDuke, the film was Batman Begins not Batman Returns. I don't think an army of penguins with rockets on their back have anything to do with ninjas.

But what are those ninja clans? Theres Chinese ones and Japanese ones. Ninjas most famous tricks had to do with ilusions where they could vanish themselves or objects. I'm saying there could be secret ninja society where there are ninjas who could do amazing things.

As i mentioned earlier,ninjitsu is just a form of marshall art.
People can with strict training and belief make themselves quicker,stronger and able to resist pain to a certain extent,but cannot make themselves vanish or fly.

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.

Ninjas still exist just look at about every current special ops team on the planet. The Ninja was the Father of them all IMHO. They were doing much of that stuff hundreds of years ago.

I have researched historical Ninja to some extent and most of the Myths of Super natural powers have kernels of truth which are infact quite natural. These used some amazing technology for the time even things like crude Grenades, smoke bombs and all manner of poison.

The Ninja also helped encourage these myths of super natural powers in what was early physiological warfare which helped them.

Facts:
1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.

I absolutly agree with what you say,having studied the arts for awhile in my younger days.
But the fact remains that they dont actually fly(only leap)and dont actually just disapear(only under cover of smoke bombs)

The orignal ninjas were a Japanese secret society that acted as mercenaries and secret "hit squads" for the emperors, shoguns, and warlords in feudal Japan:
en.wikipedia.org...

Legend has grown up around them, mostly following the romanticization of the martial arts through films such as the Bruce Lee films. Modern ninjitsu schools are of a variety of types... some claim they are the "true ones" and are fairly open about their practices. Other "true schools" are extremely secretive.

Some military men train in the martial arts, in hand-to-hand combat techniques. However (and I speak from experience), not all schools are suitable for all body types (you really don't want to teach kung fu to someone who doesn't have good balance... but karate would be a decent choice. Jujitsu would be a terrible choice, too.)

The original ninja masters did not write books, so what they might have taught and what their original philosophy was, is lost to us.

Some of the "ninja schools" of the US are really... well... "testosteronal-fakes" in my humble opinion. The leader of the school studied books (well, maybe A book) and made things up from there.

How can you tell the good from the fraud? You can't. A decent school will have an established lineage of masters, however, and can trace its origin to a Japanese school. But this wouldn't tell you if the teacher is any good or if what they're teaching makes sense or has any substance to it.

They don't disappear only under cover of smoke bombs. There is many reasons to why people felt the practioners of Ninpo had powers of invisibility, aside from smoke bombs. They were trained to capitalize on distraction for example.

I agree with schools in US but if you go to Japan you can find Ninpo schools That teach traditional Ninjutsu, some of which are headed by proven 30 something generation Ninja clan family members.

They had a show on one not to long ago and the Master could do some amazing stuff like walk across thin rice paper and not tear any of it. One of his 10 year plus students could evade a strike from behind even while blind folded.


There is a bunch of Ninja museums in Japan that are historical accurate. They have some cool stuff like Ninja houses that look ordinary, but were full of hidden mechanisms so that they could hide secrets. If anyone is going on a Trip to Japan and is interested in Ninja it would be well worth the detour IMHO.

bah... Pirates were a bunch of drunks. Blackbeard was the only cool one. Ninja had some real skill and trained their whole lives to do what they did.
