What it Means to Be a Ninja

A Brief History
Ninjas were covert agents in feudal Japan that were tasked with open combat, infiltration, espionage, assassination, and more. During times of unrest and war, ninjas were hired for these tasks. However, once Japan became more unified, the ninja became a thing of the past. They became more of a legend, story, or folktale than anything real. With this romanticized view of the ninja came the ideas that ninjas were almost supernatural; people believed that their training included learning to walk on water or exert control over the elements. This is why the common world view of them involved a lot of mystery and the idea that they were even more sneaky and stealthy than they actually were.
Regardless of what people believe that ninjas are capable of, we know that they had to undergo extensive training and learn to have control over their body, mind, and weapons. Ninjas were born to be ninjas, and the profession was passed down through families. Being a ninja was not just a profession, but a way of life and was treated as such.
