Ninjutsu is arguably one of the most controversial topics in the martial arts world. There are numerous organizations teaching Ninjutsu worldwide. Some claim to teach traditional Ninjutsu while others teach a modern interpretation of the art. These two scenarios are not uncommon. It is almost impossible to authenticate traditional Ninjutsu claims while the modern styles are a new interpretation of the past.
Much rarer is finding a reclusive Ninja school in the heart of Japan that almost no one in the world has heard of. A Ninjutsu organization that has remained veiled in secrecy for ages and is about to go extinct. A Ninjutsu family that has the backing of Japanese historians, the government and a museum. A find like this is unheard of.
For many years in the West people associated only a few names with the art of "Ninjutsu." Most people hear Ninjutsu and immediately think of Masaaki Hatsumi or Seiko Fujita. Masaaki Hatsumi, the most famous in the Western world, is associated with Iga. Seiko Fujita, who passed away decades ago, is associated with Koga. Many people believed that the only true Ninjutsu practitioner left was Masaaki Hatsumi. It is also widely believed that the Koga line of Ninjutsu died with Seiko Fujita. But these statements are, and always have been, false.
Author Daniel DiMarzio unknowingly stumbled upon just that while living and working in Japan. For the first time in English, with the permission of his teacher, he brought this Ninjutsu organization to the Western world by publishing this book in 2008. Daniel pulled back the veil on Ban Family Ninjutsu, an organization lead by the head of the family Jinichi Kawakami and instructor Yasushi Kiyomoto.
This republished book describes an adventure of living and working in Japan while accidentally coming across a reclusive Ninjutsu organization that chose to remain in the shadows for ages. It details life in Japan and training privately with a reputed master of Ninjutsu.
