“Ninjutsu” is the English, or more rather, the Hollywood given name to the arts used by the Ninja or “Shinobi”. Here at Tonbo Dojo, we use the word “Ninjutsu” as it is more commonly known than the formal name of the art “Ninpo Taijutsu”. Ninpo, and Taijutsu; These are the correct names for the combat arts of the Ninja. Ninjutsu and Ninpo Taijutsu are not bits and pieces of different arts, but rather a whole and complete art containing many families. It is ever evolving and growing, but traditional in that many of the disciplines date back to Japan’s Feudal times.
