In many areas of the world, the word Ninja has come to mean black clothed mysterious beings that can perform superhuman feats. Popular movies and television are largely responsible for the attire, but Ninja legends are a part of history in Japan. Folklore portrays Ninja as possessing supernatural powers that allowed them to fly, become invisible, walk on water, and shapeshift. Ninjas could accomplish these extraordinary acts because they had mastered control over the elements of nature. Though there are numerous folk tales and stories, it is rare to find historical records. What accounts do exist state Ninja was born into the profession. Secrets and traditions were passed from generation to generation. Starting at an early age children were trained in the ways of the Ninja including martial arts, climbing buildings, avoiding detection, diversions, and how to use a variety of weapons. Misguided efforts to connect Samurai and Ninja likely stem from the fact that both are born into their profession and begin training within the family at an early age. Samurai observed a code of honor and a strict set of rules. Ninja did not have a code and employed disguise and secrecy to carry out their duties. The masters of deception were often mercenaries hired to perform covert acts. Ninja used a wide assortment of skills to carry out their assignments which included infiltrating groups or areas, espionage, guerilla warfare, and assassinations. The primary tool of the Ninja was disguise. Often the Ninja would dress as a peasant farmer or woodcutter. Disguised as a common worker Ninja could slip into almost any town or village. Ninja were trained to use their skills of stealth instead of engaging in open fighting.
- Ninja manuals focused on avoiding detection and how to escape if captured.
- Blowguns, poison darts, and blinding powder were just a few of the Ninja weapons.
- Ninja ate vegetarian diets to avoid having body odor.
