Ninja Schools of Interest

Schools of Interest

 

There are a limited number of schools available to those seriously interested in the art of ninjutsu. Nevertheless, we list those we recommend for their validity. The ninja were, however, no respecters of either rigid documentation or stuffy recounting of lineage. The very concept of proof of martial identity is in contradistinction to the ninja way. In the lonely battlefield that was the ninja’s life, documentation was only of value when it provided safe passage or enhanced a created identity.

Martial schools, especially the commercial schools of today, look down on the idea that what works is what counts. Not so the ninja. Pretension was for other arts. The art of ninjutsu is very much about what works.

The ninja did not look down on other arts. Ninja studied and learned, experimented and moved forward. Necessity can indeed be the mother of invention, and both survival and mission accomplishment were the ninja’s necessity.

Ninja would consider our fixation on their myth and legends as exploitable. Our emphasis on ninjutsu purity as not only exploitable, but perhaps an example of weakness. When we say that this or that style is the only “authentic” style of ninjutsu, we are already lost. When we look for certifications and lineages, we are entering the world of the Samurai, not that of the ninja. When we look for martial uniforms and rank, we are learning the way of structure, not the constantly evolving adaptive creative flow of the ninja.

With these considerations in mind, we list here schools and contacts of interest for those of a mind to learn. These schools are for those who accept no edicts, knowing that only what we can learn, understand and use is of value to us.  They are not all ninjutsu.
