Ninjutsu is the Art of the Ninja. A Ninja was someone whose very existence expressed the spirit of budô. He would protect himself with techniques not of assassination but rather of sensation and an acute awareness of his natural surroundings. He would avoid unnecessary conflict, and even if armed with a blade would find a way to win without staining it, using minimal effort and inflicting minimal injury necessary to neutralize his opponent. These are the true techniques of Ninjutsu, and the art in which Ninja persistently trained. An art and tradition handed down orally, from generation to generation. An art we are fortunate enough to have handed down to us today thanks to Dr Masaaki Hatsumi the 34th Grandmaster of Togakure-Ryû Ninjutsu in Japan. The art and tradition in which we here in Cyprus today, persistently train and try to preserve, under the guidance and instruction of Sensei Elias Charalambous( 00357 99569507 ).
Ninjutsu has its roots in the martial ,religious,political and cultural histories of the ancient island nation of Japan. Evolving out of necessity, during various times of political turmoil and total civil chaos,when day-to-day survival of ones family depended on personal strength,resourcefulness, and creativity. The ways of Japan's legendary ninja night warriors created an underground counterculture that provided the means and inspirations for surviving, despite overwhelming odds. The warrior tradition of the shinobi clans fostered the development of a living personal art that blended components of devastating combat skills, finely tuned powers of intuition, and practiced abilities to transform intention to reality, using the powers that be, to visualise and become.
The history of the Ninja is long and ancient. Some say it goes back over 2,500 years, but records have been found dating the history of the Ninja going back as far as 4,300 years ago.
