It is what the west calls 'ninja' or 'ninjutsu'. Actually, this word is modern invention. The more traditional word is 'shinobi'. And this is not a fighting style - it is more a 'way of life' than a fighting style... a system of thought and philosophy that is thousands of years old. Our philosophies started in India and traveled across Asia before reaching Japan. To be ninja is to learn a different way of looking at the universe, at life, a different way to perceive reality.
Also, the way of the ninja is family tradition – it was, even to my generation, only taught from parents to children, or rather, within the extended clan, or family.
People around the world requested to learn the way of the ninja, so we took a very interesting step – we decided to include the whole world in our family – that is to say, we decided that from now on the clan will treat all human beings as our brothers and sisters, and to share everything we know with them, freely, and without payment.
Continued after the advertisment below...
We now find that we are the spokespersons of the clan - to the world - in our training videos and in our youtube channel. My English is good in writing, I wish to perfect it still further. So far, I can be understood when I speak in english, which is what is important. I do not wish to 'speak just like a native speaker' - what I wish is to speak so that I can convey my thoughts correctly.
Firstly, mentally, the ninja develops a different way of looking at the universe - a more evolved viewpoint. We believe that 'right action' is necessary - not blindly following any set of rules in life, but instead doing exactly the right thing in the right moment, and this is not easy, unless you can 'see' better. From great understanding - of oneself, of the people that surround oneself, of human society and finally, of the universe at large - from such understanding, comes the ability to act correctly in each unique situation of life.
There are many such. The ninja have a very original and insightful view of human society and its evolution, and of the universe itself. And they are a deeply scientific people – for centuries, the ninja have been the first to adopt new technologies, and innovated new applications for them. In science, in art, in our philosophy and writing, we strive to embody the creative force that is the true strength of humanity.
