"Master, how will the Gyokku Ninja Clan benefit by teaching all these techniques to the world, and offering ninja training for free?
Thank you for a most thoughtful query.
The Gyokku Ninja Clan's very survival was threatened by losses suffered in combat. The Clan took horrendous losses in the brutal jungle fighting in Myanmar and south asia in WWII, and while those veterans who actually returned from that conflict were infinitely skilled warriors, the simple fact is that their numbers were too few to truly continue the clan in the pure family tradition we had maintained till then.
To survive, we had to increase the number of ninja serving under the banners of the Gyokku Clan immediately. Centers were established centers in different parts of Asia, and the Clan accepted the first outsiders into the family, on condition that they BECAME family in the truest sense of the word.
These are techniques unknown to the world outside the clan - what happens if the last master among us dies? And these techniques are not even touching the surface of the knowledge of the clan - each weapon used by the ninja is its own jutsu form, and beyond these are the esoteric meditations, the philosophies we have been gathering for centuries.
Continued after the advertisment below...
We have massive amounts of property in Asia, and recently we have begun to liquidate it, and on a mountain we own we are making a single dojo-fortress-training center. It is our intention that any student who is willing to consider the clan family should be allowed to come there and train - again free of charge.
Yes, it has its uses. But consider - we have our own fields, and grow our own food. If someone is willing to work beside our people to help grow that food, why should he or she not eat of it?
These are dangerous concepts. In reality, there is only humanity, and above all else, brotherhood - genuine love for one another.
I trust this answers your question. Please do feel free to make any other query.
