Togakure-ryu Ninja Biken: Hiryu-no-Ken | Ninjutsu Sword Fighting Training Techniques (Ninjato)

In this video, I teach an old ninjato/shinobigatana technique from the Togakure-ryu school of Ninpo Taijutsu.  This kata is from the Ninja Biken section called “Hiryu no Ken”, which means Flying Dragon Sword. I briefly go over the classical kata and explain some of the principals.  However, the purpose of this training session was to extracted some of the principals of the traditional kata and work various training drills to develop stronger skills with the ninjato/shinobi-gatana/ninja sword.
.
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).

Understanding the Historical Use of the Ninjato (忍刀) Ninja Sword History | Ninjutsu Martial Arts

In this video, I explain what the ninjato is, as taught from the Tomo-ryu tradition.  There are many koryu in Japan, and all of them will have a different explanation as to what things were and how they were used in ancient Japan.  On the scrolls of the Tomo-ryu, it is very clear, that the “ninjato” are the “blades of the ninja” that were specifically modified to help them on their mission.
.
Many times people see the kanji “nin” (忍) and following it would be the kaji for blade, sword, spear, bow and arrow, etc – and they automatically assume it is “ninja”.  Many times it is NOT “ninja” at all. In fact, the majority of the time they are talking about concealed or hidden weapons. Remember the kanji “nin” (忍) is associated with ninja, but it all means hidden, concealed, stealth, endurance and perseverance.  So you have to understand the context of the scroll and why the scroll was written to understand the use of the weapon.
.
This is why the kuden and transmission is so important. As Soke of this tradition, it is my responsibility to make sure that the true history and tradition is passed on correctly to the next generation.
.
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).

Ninja-Iai: Iaijutsu Quick Draw Training Drills with Kodachi (Ninjato) | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu

In this video I demonstrate a basic iai (iaido) sword drawing training drill to help develop the skills needed to be proficient in iaijutsu. In this drill I am using a kodachi (ninjato) because the ryuha that we are training in has a strong focus on the use of the short sword.
.
The training (keiko) of Iai/iaido/iaijutsu is to be able to respond quickly to a unexpected attack efficiently.  This is a skill-set that is highly needed in today’s world of self-defense, as these same skills can be equally used in the use of concealed carry with edged weapons for self-defense / self-protection.
.

The Ninjato (忍者刀 ), Ninja-ken (忍者剣), Shinobigatana (忍刀)

1503485_10202340311980648_1800810018_n

“The ninja sword was shorter than a normal one, as long as two feet. Its cord is very long, for it is used for climbing up a wall… It is said that the ninja never used a fine sword with the name of the swordsmith. When assassinating the enemy, the ninja usually used a newly made thick sword to thrust. He never pulled it out after thrusting and killing the enemy, leaving it there so that he might not revive. He did not want to be traced by the name of the swordsmith”

Anshu Christa Jacobson – The truth behind the ninjato PART 3

 

This is part 3 of the Ninja Search!  Great Research!  This proves that the “Straight Blade” Katana, does date before the NINJA BOOK IN THE U.S.A (1980’s) and the NINJA BOOM IN JAPAN (1960’s).

I am not for sure why so many have issues with facts?  Just because their teacher says “this” does not make it true.  anyway, watch part 1 – 2  & 3 and figure out what you think.
