Michi Hidou (道秘道) The Way and the Secret Way
In the picture above Soke Anshu is with a student at the Annual Shinobi-no-mono Stealth Camp (2012) demonstrating various outfits and disguises of the shinobi. Utilizing many different outfits as a means of camouflage as well as disguises, the ninja can move undetected within the crowd or in the shadows.
Above you see Soke dressed as Ronin (浪人; person of the waves) which falls within the philosophy of Tsune-no-kata (常之型; normal look). For demonstrational purposes at the event, the student placed on a Shinobi Shozoku (忍び装束) called the Fuyu Shozoku (冬装束; ninja winter garb) which is a classical outfit of the ninja to move undetected (陰忍術; Innin-jutsu) in the winter months of snow and ice. All concepts of disguise and camouflage are covered when the students of the Budo Ryu understand Kage-no-kame (影之構).


“If in his mind the warrior does not forget on thing,
Death, he will never find himself cut short.
The lesson the warrior learns in every case
Is ultimately, finally the one thing: death.
If the warrior proceeds by casting aside two things,
Life and death, nothing at all can best his mind.”
Tsukahara Bokuden; 1489-1571
Budo Ryu; School of the Warrior Way
