I just stumbled with this article reporting that currently there are 3,500 women in Iran, with high-rank training in Ninjutsu, the ancient Japanese
martial art of Ninja warriors:
In the tradition of ancient Japanese warriors, thousands of Iranian woman are training to be ninjas. According to The Atlantic, roughly 3,500 females
regularly change from their traditional garb to dress the part of high-kicking, wall-climbing, metal star-throwing fighters. This program is being
hailed as part of a revolution for Muslim women in the country.
Now that's something huge!! How come 3,500 women are trained Ninjas in a Muslim country?? I couldn't even think about 3, let alone 3,500...
And make no mistake: Those women in the video totally move like ninjas. Very impressive!

Maybe those countries aren't what you are told they are. I'm not sure if I totally buy that they're trained in ninjitsu, since all I saw were some
flips and running, but I don't doubt it entirely either.
Iran is not the oppressive type of country the western media portrays it as. It's actually pretty modern and from what I can tell a nice place to
live, though I've never been there and probably never will. I prefer America.
I know that Iran is modern, but it doesn't need the Western media to tell me that Muslim women are NOT free. Ninjutsu training already is unusual for
non Asian men, let alone Muslim women. That's totally out of place and that's why I see some government program going on. Definitely that's no
"cultural upgrade". Those women have a well defined purpose!

If a Ninja approach silently on you, with his/her mind empty and focused in the Chi, you won't even know what hit you.
I think you are referring to something in Chinese martial arts. Unless of course you can source somewhere where a Ninjitsu student uses "Chi".
Chi is universal. All aspects of martial arts refer to it one way or another. I believe in the Japanese martial arts, it is broken into 5 different
elements: Tsuchi(earth) Sui (water) Ka (fire) Fu (wind) and Ku (void). I don't know what the hell void is but then again I don't study ninjutsu.
And I don't think he meant using Chi as a physical ability but rather, the ninja controlling his footsteps and breathing to be as silent and lethal as
possible. How does using this Japanese chi affect such actions? No clue, maybe I should take a class or something.
Haha, amusing. However, I don't believe you are right in that analogy. If you follow my link, Tsuchi is actually described as:
In the mind, it is confidence. When under the influence of this chi mode or "mood", we are aware of our own physicality and sureness of action.
(Note: This is a separate concept from the energy-force, pronounced in Chinese as qì (also written ch'i) and in Japanese as ki, and written
alternatively as 気, 氣, or 气.)
So basically, the ninja would be fully aware of his/her environment and be fully confident in him/herself to down their enemy.
There is an art called Reiki, which is used in the same way the Chinese uses it. Although Chi derives from the martial art Tai'chi or Qi' Gong, it
can also be used as a Reiki style of healing or enhancement.
I know this because I train in Qi' Gong for my roots stem from China.
