(Budo Ryu Lesson – Please Read In Full)

You may or may not believe in magick, and that is up to you and your spiritual path. One thing is for sure, the ninja did believe in magick, & the higher level of ninjutsu training is learning the ancient ninja methods of spells & magick. I personally believe in magick, as it is very well documented that I practice wicca as a form of spirituality. This spiritual practice and belief in the metaphysical realm is one of the reasons why I was honored with the ranks and titles that I have (Anshu “暗主” = Dark Master)

Many say that magick is all in your mind, & this is true. But just because it is in your mind, does not mean that it is not real. Your mind is the most important tool in working magick, as well as the study of ninjutsu & bujutsu.

Focus is the key, & if you’re distracted, than your mind keeps jumping from thought to thought. If you are not focused, your spells won’t be very effective. Mental clarity, concentration, & balance are essential to magick. That’s why ninja, witches and other magicians often practice meditation; it trains & disciplines your mind.

Meditation strengthens the link between you and the divine. When your mind is calm and receptive, you can communicate with angels, spirits, past loved ones, & whatever higher power you recognize in the metaphysical world.

I can go on and on with this lesson, but the point of this lesson is to increase the understanding that in the ancient world of ninjutsu, the practice of magick is more important than learning un-armed fighting techniques.
“…there is no benefit in the defiance of regular habits that may be powerful and may be misunderstood. On the other hand, you must be careful that you do not elevate any esoteric belief to be all – powerful – You must keep your head about you. Bushi warriors life to wear good armor, not only to protect themselves from arrows, but also, so that they feel brave and are prepared to die immediately as a result of any fighting that they do; using these spells, similar to using quality armor.”

10 Methods of Stealth Walking

1 – Nuki Ashi / Stealthy Step
2 – Suri Ashi / Rubbing Stpe
3 – Shime Ashi / tight Step

6 – O Ashi / Gaint Step
7 – Ko Ashi / Little Step

9 – Wari Ashi/ Quick Step
10 – Tsuene no Ashi / Normal Step

All of these steps are taught in great detail in the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo and at every annual Shinobi no Mono Stealth Camp!

I must say that this is the list of the 10 that are on the scroll of the SHONINKI, which is Kishu Ryu school of ninjutsu. There are other schools of ninjutsu that have different stealth methods, such as yoko aruki, yoko bashiri, kitsune bashiri, and various other walking methods.

However; even though different ryu may have different methods of walking within their school. These are the 10 most basic or kihon methods of walking and is considered basic knowledge of the historical shinobi and is the basic / foundation of stealth walking and should be mastered and taught by ALL schools of ninjutsu.

(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.
