"Master, If I come to do my Ninjutsu training in a Gyokku Ninja dojo in Asia, how long will I have to train? Is there a certain amount of time I would have to stay or can I just train for a week or two?"
Since we are more a family tradition than a martial art in the strictest sense, there are no strict limits of any kind.
A person can stay as little or as long as they please, though of course mastery of the actual jutsu forms will take a certain amount of time. A person who comes in trained from a previous discipline or from army service (there are a lot of ex-army veterans from around the world in the Clan) has an undoubted advantage here, and can progress rapidly.
...We recommend that anyone wishing to become a Gyokku Ninja to start with reading the Books and Scrolls of Ninja Methods...
Certain courses that cannot be taught online are taught when a student comes to a dojo in Asia, including urban stealth and agility, all-terrain survival, electronic surveillance and countermeasures for the same, bio-chemical poisons that slow the body or cloud the mind (among other things), and much more.
In very simple terms, success in training or qualification in mastery is not a matter of time in the ninja Clan, but a question of actual mastery of techniques and practice. A student who can demonstrate knowledge of techniques and demonstrate in armored combat against other ninja his mastery of practical application can advance very quickly.
This system of Ninjutsu Training resulted from the Clan's experiences in WWII, where we lost a horrifying number of ninja in ruthless jungle combats, but this period ended with the masters of the Clan at that time all being veterans some of whom had more than 40 kills in real warfare. They changed the rules to emphasize real mastery in APPLICATION in combat, against modern weaponry, as opposed to theoretical knowledge.
A deshi training in a Gyokku Ninja dojo in Asia can advance rapidly if he or she can prove mastery by perfect knowledge, or in combat against other ninja.
