KIMITAKE means Investigator, Care Taker, Courage

It is the name of a 15th century Japanese clan that was outlawed and exterminated during the infamous Sword Hunt, when the Shogun sent a 25,000 man army to kill all the Ninja in Iga and Koga provinces that had put him in power. The few survivors of this family escaped into the cities and allied themselves with the Yakuza, Japanese gamblers; while members of other clans fled into the mountains and became Yamabushi, warrior-monks.

Included in this Handbook:

About the NINJA!

“They come from the no-where; they go to the no-place; looked for cannot be seen, listened for, cannot be heard, felt for, cannot be touched; they are the terror that lurks in the night, their name cannot be spoken…”

Ninja are not supermen. There are no extraordinary men, only ordinary men who find themselves placed in extraordinary circumstances. Heroes are not born, they are made; by those who must or choose to forge their bodies in the fire of their will to become men of peace who can fight light ten tigers.

The family members of the Kimitake clan used many tools to survive the Shogun’s revenge for their loyalty and developed a simple and effective method of self-defense that is in keeping with the traditions of the Koga clan. Given here are the simple explanations for the skills that made them legendary as the invisible assassins of feudal Japan.
