ShoninkiCal traditions that distinguished them from the soldierlike samurai Their art of ninjutsu invisible as well as indispensable was transmitted in secret schools and relied on only a few books which were written in code The Shoninki one of the most important of these coded manuals was written in 1681 by Master Ninja Natori Masazumi Presenting all facets of the art of concealment espionage and physical prowess including methods of disguise a A text about espionage tactics in feudal Japan Aka its a book about ninjas It was very short but reuired me to look up a lot of Japanese terms to understand it well 17th cent primary text Discusses everything from what euipment a ninja should carry to how to read peoples emotions and lots in between This text focuses on sneaking than combat so there isnt much detail about weaponry use here If you are interested in the historical rather than mythological ninja in the west we tend to confuse them then check this out Very few texts like this exist since ninjas didn't have the aristocratic pizzaz of samurai Be thankful for relatively widespread premodern Japanese literacyOld school secret agent stuff right here
