A few months ago I was invited to come train in a ninjitsu class. I accept the offer and was told the location of the dojo but first I had to promise that I would bring no one else and that I not tell anyone of its location. So I arrive at this ninja school(lol) And after a bit of warming up and speaking with the guy who invited me we started class. There was several other new students there as well, so they started class with a video telling us all about ninjitsu and how it is practice, it also mentioned how to obtain the master degree which was to sit facing away from the grandmaster whom is holding a sword and strikes towards your neck and you have to dodge it as he swings of course today they use a wooden sword but they used to use real ones. anyways they tell us the cost to train is fifty big ones a month and each belt is one hundred so now that we know all that they hand us a syllabas which we must burn after we are done memorizing it. So now the real training begins.

Let me just say the moves we were learning were neither effective nor done with any resistence. to say the least i was very amused and will never return to the secret ninja clan lol and btw i never burned the papers lol

I think in Togakure-ryu ninjutsu, part of the 5th degree and up black belt test was actually to avoid a sword strike fom behind while seated. I have seen pictures of Masaaki Hatsumi doing that.

I've never heard of any of them asking for the syllabus to be burned, though. LOL.

A lot of "McDojo" have these strict structured ways so they can maintain control no questions asked. It is fun being a black belt in an authoritive position. This doesnít make you any better it only gives you a false sense of security. These guys train and train but what do they really train correctly. Itís easy to think your good in a controlled environment where there is no risk of a bloody nose or black eye or even a broken bone. This makes a false sense of presence that will give you the feeling of being unbeatable.
