Another way of calling them is “shinobi”, meaning “those who act in stealth”.
Ninja employed deception and forgery tactics to take opponents out by surprise.
The ninja used their art to ensure their survival in a time of violent political turmoil. Ninjutsu included methods of gathering information and techniques of non-detection, avoidance, and misdirection.
It’s a testimonial to the ninja that Japan’s 1964 Olympic team seriously considered using a number of ninjutsu training methods. Masaaki Hatsumi, one of Japan’s few remaining ninja practitioners, describes the ninja of old as the perfect all-around athletes of their day — expert in running, jumping, swimming, climbing walls, long-distance hiking, throwing, etc. Of course, the ninja excelled in all the martial arts of their day, such as kendo, kyudo and naginata-do. They were also skilled in hand-to-hand combat, using wrestling and boxing techniques that were the forerunners of judo and karate.

As opposed to the quickness and agility you might use on the slanted steps, balancing across the warrior log or domino blocks creates a new type of challenge for young ninjas • Learn To Fall Safely-Ninja obstacles are not easily conquered on the first try. Ninja students must try and try again (ok, the #5 benefit is perseverance). When students enter class, they are taught how to fall safely, whether from a rope, bar, or obstacle
