Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth / Silent Walking | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques

In this video, I teach a step by step tutorial of the top ninja principals of stealth walking, a.k,a Shinobi Aruki. Many times people see ninjutsu training as this very specific thing, when in reality, all ninjutsu training if flexible and fluid.  The Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth Walking Are:


(1) Understand Bodyweight Transfer During Motion.

(2) Control Your Breathing.

(3) Stay Relaxed and Flexible.

(4) Train in Various Elements To Enhance Body Control.

(5) Learn To Adapt To Each Situation & Element.


In the classic ninjutsu text called the Bansenshukai, Fujibayashi Yasutake says:


“Ignorant ninja are not aware of this principal but directly stick to ancient ways and do not even know the simplest of facts…”


“Its folly to see something as unchangeable and stick to an old method without realizing that things keep changing and are in flux.”


– Fujibayashi Yasutake | Bansenshukai; 1676


This lesson is directly for the practitioners of the ancient Japanese koryu martial arts of the ninja and samurai, such as ninjutsu (ninpo) and bujutsu (budo).

“Fierceness is essential in the realm of war. It cannot be dependent of the amount of destruction that you want to inflict. This emotion has to be drown upon by the honor that you have for your family, loyalty that you have for your lord. Fierceness is a natural state when the troops see the wisdom of their leader and attack like the power of the heavens.”

“It is very important for a warlord to have access to gaining information, the use of spies is crucial. Some of the information us useful and some is deception, it is up to the leader as to how to move and attack.”

“Spies and guerrilla agents are the utmost importance to the successful operation of the warlord. Only those who are intelligent and enlightened can use them properly. Without secret operations a war is a meaningless act of violence that does nothing except destroy all of the people and all the resources.”

I wrote 10 lessons on the art of war. Study these lessons well, to master them means you understand the true arts of war.
