Infiltration of armed troops

Being able to infiltrate armies is very important, when doing this you should prepare to beat the retreat at any moment.

To do this the enemy has to be diverted with wolf smoke, being shot by the allied sides, if this is not possible you should infiltrate the at the same time that the troops are starting to march.

***** WOLF SMOKE: In Japanese Noroshizutsu means wolf smoke pipe. Noroshi was used to send signals. Ninjas were good at getting and sending information. As a fuel for noroshi, Ninjas put dry wolf’s dung into the pipe. The reason why ninjas used wolf dung because it added more smoke and more power. *****

An old tradition says that you should know and easily master the way the enemy soldiers stand and sit down, as well as their signs passwords and methods of saluting.

the technique of blending in to the crowd should only be attempted once you have solidly established your presence in that area, if you hear that people are talking about this or that, gain as much information as you can. (Tomo Ryu Waza called Kage no Kamae)


(there are many interpretations of this book, this is my personal interpretations; I hope that this can help you in your training.)


I hope that these words from Natori can help you on your journey of the arts. be Safe my friends.
