Introduction to Ninjutsu

Ninjutsu is not merely the art of self defense or martial art. Ninjutsu actually consists of fighting, survival, espionage, medicine, philosophy, culture, discipline & many other skills. It is the art that arise around the end of the 6th century A.D. in Japan after some Intellectuals, Japanese Ronins (Samurai), Yamabushis (Mountain Priest), Political & War Refugees made their way into the Mountains during the turbulent wars of the Japanese. Isolated for years, it begins to emerge through intermarriages & generations. The knowledge, martial art skills, beliefs & philosophies blended and evolved into what is known as Ninjutsu today.

The regions of Iga & Kogo became famous for producing great Ninja families but unfortunately it then declines after 1603 A.D. The Koga style was unfortunately not inherited to anyone as the only Master, Fujita Seiko and his students perished in a car crash in the 1960s. The Iga style was inherited by Sensei Takamatsu Toshitsugu Uoh, who handed all the grandmasters of 9 traditional Ninja and Samurai schools to Soke Masaaki Hatsumi, the founder of Bujinkan Dojo International.

Ninjutsu arrived in Malaysia around the year 1990s and currently headed by Sensei Lee P.K.
