Search the archive. This particular useless question has been asked entirely too many times already.

Let me elaborate on Charles' statement. The "ninja" as known in popular culture didn't exist, so your question is mood at the get-go. However, your question has some other problems.

With both ninja and samurai, you had those who were blademasters, as well as many who never entered combat. This question is so general that it is impossible to answer conclusively, like those endless rapier-vs-katana arguments.

If you meant on a whole, here's how you find out: hire fifty kenjitsu swordsmen, and pit them one on one against real ninjitsu students (good luck finding real ones; many don't even call their art ninjistu anymore due to the Mcdojos). Then, come back and tell us how the tournament went.

Ah, some "ninja" WERE "samurai."

Oh, and anyone who asks a question like this.

Please, please, pretty please, don't refer to me as a "fellow swordsmen."

Someone I know may be reading this.

I think that the samurai is the better swordsman, cuz ninja's jused steath an decepion as there main weapon.
ninja's didn's get in to fights verry often(they spreaded some powder in there opponent's face and flet).

Let me put this as gently as possible: Judokatar, your knowledge of the facts is as flimsy as your grasp on the English language.

you tell me the facts first and then degrade me.

as far as I know every thing I said was correct

and my English is very good for a 14 jear old Dutch boy

ps. I think its just sad to offend people like that, you shouldn’t degrade people, you sould correct them if you know better
