Ninjas praticed guerilla warfare.
Ninjas lived in the forested mountains of china

Gorilas live in forested mountians.

Perhaps this is how guerilla warfare got its name?

Think about it

Ninja's are mammals and totally sweet.

They spend all day flipping out at pirates.

My friend saw a ninja uppercut this kid because he opened a window.

Here is a site devoted to nija's http://www.realultimatepower.net/

sorry folks couldn't resist having another peep at this site... the hate mail makes me laugh

The ninja were around i believe in the 1500's and the were hired by generals and kings. They were hired as assisins and body guards. The art was believed to have been started by a Buddist monk who journied to Japan. You chose a great art to learn if you want some katas on ninjas email me. Ninjas rule. Hoorah.

Ninjas were like backstage players for a play. They play a big part during olden Japan and china. Their gi actually originated for opera backstage workers. To fight is not their actual cup of tea. They are loyal servants to their emperor. They are often sent to kill, steal or spy. Usually they are not like in the movies, fighting people in the lights. They prefer to escape without any ppl knowing their presense. Their aim is to return safely after a mission without anyone knowing. A ninja maybe skilled in making bombs and weapons. But they are extremely knowledgeable in other aspects like geography, weather, disguise, guns, medicine, poison and all the other stuff.

Samurai is a skilled fighter who is supposed to be very loyal to the japanese emperor. They are usually skilled in arts of horse-riding, bow and arrow and martial arts like jujitsu, kenjitsu and iajitsu and a skill "translated from chinese" fire gun techniques. Which were guns.

They both have the common goal, that is to serve the emperor.

Well, I do agree that samurai was misinformed when he said "ninjas did not live by a code." They very much did so. Everything was duty to them. The first ninjas, from my research,(and believe me, I have researched and apply the lifestyle of the ninja in every way of my life, from the minute I wake up til the moment I sleep. I even looked up ninjan food recipes!) were actually priests who developed the skill of stealth to hide from men who were after them, due to the fact that priests have always held power througout history. Eventually the secrets of the priests made it into public hands, and their stealth skills were combined with fighting syles to create ninjutsu. Ninjutsu is literally "the art of being invisible." Ninjas were not really the "enemy" of samurai, like many movies depict. In fact, ninjas often worked for high-ranking shoguns and daimyos(samurai warlords.) That is some basic info. Here are some more good sites for ninja-ish stuff. http://www.iganinja.jp/english/menu.html http://www.ashidakim.com/
There you go, and enjoy your study of the shadow warriors!
