“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”

“Outside of Japan, people think Bushido is synonymous with harakiri. Actually, the meaning of Bushido is to achieve something in this world and then to be able to throw away this body and accept death. But this concept is very easily misunderstood. It’s really quite different from just going out and dying. If you fail to achieve something and say “Oh, I must kill myself” it’s not a very productive way of thinking. Bushido rejects that irresponsible way of thinking. There is also in Bushido the concept of continuing to live even though you may have to live in shame. If there is a way to right the wrong you’ve done, then you should do so. This is the real Bushido.”
Risuke Ōtake (大竹利典)
Shihan (Teaching Master) of Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū
Risuke Otake of Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu (one of the oldest koryu bujutsu, dating back to the middle Muromachi period) said in an interview that the popular idea of Bushido is over-romantic and misleading.
