Ninjutsu is the ancient art of the ninjas (Aka shinobi) of Japan. It is a unique method of moving and thinking which developed our system often referred to us the art of winning. Taijustu is the basic defence method used. This method of relaxed continues body movement allows the user to create a never ending supply of effective counters to any given defence situation and is unique to Ninjutsu. Ninjutsu is a complete fighting system dealing with the Physical, mental and spiritual aspects of student development. Techniques cover locks, throws, ground fighting, multiple attacks, modern weaponry, and all types of traditional Ninjutsu weaponry. In fact in Ninjutsu, there is no restriction on the type of available technique we can add on to our taijutsu. The power of this relaxed system has to be experienced to be appreciated.
Ninjutsu did not come into being a specific, well-defined art in the first place, and many centuries passed before Ninjutsu was established as an independent system of knowledge in its own right. The Ninja, at the beginning did not use that label for themselves, they were merely practitioners of strategies that were cultural opposites of the conventional outlooks of the ruling Japanese Samurai class. Their highly illegal counter culture went underground and it was for this reason alone that the art was shrouded by centuries of mystery and deliberate confusion in Japanese history.

Ninjutsu is the collection of Martial ways learned by Ninja of fuedal japan. There is no magic involved-a misconception developed from the old days, where people didnt understance science the way ninja did, and labelled some things as magic. Ninjutsu consists of the Ninja Juhakkei, 36 ninja essensials such as
Bikenjutsu:Ninja's sword method (including Ninja-to, Odachi,Nodachi,Tachi and Nito-Ichi-Ryu)
Taijutsu: Ninja's fighting method (Togakure Ryu ect)
So-jutsu: spear technique
Naginata-jutsu:Halberd techniques
Bisento-jutsu:Battlefield halberd techniques
Kusarigama-Jutsu(Kyoketsu Shoge): Sickle and chain techniques
Rokushakubo-jutsu:6ft staff techniques (full staff)
Sanjaku Bojutsu + Jojutsu:Half and 3 quarter staff techniques
Shuriken-jutsu and Senban Nage Jutsu: Blade throwing
Kisha-jutsu:Archery from horseback
Inton-no-jutsu: Dissapearing techniques
Hokojutsu (Aruki):Stealth Walking techniques
Henso Jutsu:Disguise
Kakushi Buki-Jutsu:Secret weapons (Shuko, Sokko, Nekode ect)
Ninyaku-jutsu:Special medicines and drugs
Gunryaku-Heiho: Stratagies
Tenmon and Chimon: Stratagies using heaven and earth.
Taijutsu is usualy considered the most important of these (besides spiritual refinement) as it taught the ninja skills such as Sabaki (sword evasion) Taihenjutsu (acrobatics and rolling techniques+breakfalling) and fighting methods.
learning the bodys Kyusho (pressure points)
Throwing techniques (including lock-throwing)
Grappling techniques
Striking techniques (ect Shikan-ken, Boshi-ken)
Nearly all sources besides sources of the Genbukan, Bujinkan and Jinenkan are incorrect about Ninjutsu. Also, things like *Chakra* are a lot of rubbish. Kuji Kiri (hand symbols) do exist, there are 9 main and over 50 others, but they are EXTREMELY secret(the others besides the 9) so most people just make them up.

Martial art style developed by the Ninja during the 16th century. Ninjutsu teaches the art of beating your opponent without the use of any force, by showing the human body's weak points. Ninjutsu enables yourself to end a battle shortly after it began by breaking the enemy's bones or making him unable to move any more.

Also thngs like chakra is complete crap, and ninja weren't magical. This is something from the old days because many people didn't understand how ninja did their jobs.
There are some other martial arts that ninja used like using bow and arrows and medicine making but the Ninja Juhakkei are the main ones used and the ones that make up ninjutsu.

Developed in the 16th century during the Feudal era of the Japanese, it was created to combat the ever rising threat of the samurai. The art was specifically created to target weak joints within armour with a concentration of a high powered blow.

Now practically useless, it is used by morons who think that being a ninja is cool, when in reality, Chinese wushu owns everyone.
The ninjutsu martial artist died when the Chinese Taichi practitioner kicked his ass.
