While these are by no means all the weapons in the Ninja arsenal, these five represent the Five Element Principles upon which their philosophy of weaponry is based. Ninja could not own swords during the Samurai era. Nor could they easily wander about the countryside armed to the teeth for a mission. Therefore, many were taught to improvise such devices in the field, either by manufacturing them or stealing them from the enemy. It then became a simple matter to apply the principles of the weapons, be it flexible or rigid, edged or blunt in order to emerge as a dangerous fighting force on the battlefield or the characteristic mysterious and sinister invisible assassins of feudal Japan for which they became legendary.
Once again, Grandmaster Ashida Kim lifts the veil of silence to reveal the secret teachings of the Ninja brotherhood so that all may benefit from these self defense applications.
