Martial arts and the equipment

The ninja equipment

Hi there ninjas,
today we are going to talk about martial arts, which is basically the main topic of this blog. We can find a lot of disciplines into the martial arts but what we care here is ninjutsu. 

Ninjutsu was born many many years ago in japan when the art of spying began. It's considered the strategy and tactics of unconventional warfare, as well as the art of espionage purportedly practiced by the shinobi, also known outside the japan as ninja.

At the begin it was more an art of tricks than a martial art. Today there are several styles of modern ninjutsu, and all of the includes the use of several gear and equipment.

There are almost 18 discipline coming from the ninjutsu, and of course we are not gonna mention them all but you gotta know mainly that every discipline name is related at the weapon that is mainly used in it. For example, najinatajutsu, is that art related at the use of naginata sword, and so on.

As we said earlier every branch of ninjutsu uses different kind of weapons or equipment.
The following tools we will list may not be exclusive to the ninja but most of the time are associated to the practice of nunjitsu.
Kunai, shuriken, katana, naginata, sai, are just few of the many other tools that the ninjas are famous for using.

For all those people who are just beginning to get into martial arts and in marticular ninjutsu, its important to say that many of these weapons are really sharp and so dangerous, so as im new to the martial arts you have to really pay attention of what you handle. see you in the next post. Kowabunga!!
