THE ART

Far back in the history of Japan , there evolved a warrior art designed to enlighten - not to kill, promote self-assurance and fulfillment - not the destruction of others. Inspired by the practices of the 7th century mysterious ascetic En No Gyoja and further promulgated by refugee hermits from the main-land in the 10th to 12th centuries, people like Haku-Un Doshi and his disciple Kain Doshi synthesized their experiences and knowledge of magical Taoism and outdoor-wisdom with those of the Japanese indigenous Shinto, Tantric Shugendo and other forms of local esoteric Buddhism. The knowledge was transmitted to Togakure Daisuke in the latter part of the 12th century, and he is generally credited with giving it a definite form. Thereafter, and in particular in the troubled times from the early 14th century to the second half of the 16th century - the art flourished in the fog enshrouded mountains of Iga province and Japan's back country, taking on martial aspects out of necessity, and handed down by generations of warriors known as NINJA. While retaining martial skills at it's core - the aim is for higher understanding. For that end - we utilize the martial skills as a demonstrative tool, from which we draw conceptual analogies pointing to universal truths. With that significance in mind - we term our art NIN-PO, rather than NINJUTSU, the name by which it is generally known.
