    To the OP: There are very few individuals that have good things to say about their training in "ninjutsu", however, if you do find something that satisfies what you are looking for in a martial art, by all means come back to the site and give a dojo review
    Sure I will. Thanks!

    Rather than type the same stuff again, read Styggens post again - that pretty much covers the facts on the matter.

    The only dojo that is recognised (not without controversy) as specialising in authentic ninjutsu in Japan is that of Jinichi Kawakami, soke of Banke Shinobinoden. He has only had one student he considered worthy and able to transmit the art to, Yasushi Kiyomoto, who now teaches at the Banke dojo (Kawakami has retired). In order to learn anything of their ninjutsu you must first train with them for 10 years in samurai jujutsu. At this point they may or may not decide to show you something of their secrets, depending on whether they think you are suitable or not. Some of the ninjutsu elements are martial but most appear to be pseudo science (reading the weather), cartography, stealth and hiding and the intricacies of pre Meiji era espionage (completely redundant in the modern world). In short, if it is indeed ninjutsu it is more of a historical curiosity than an all inclusive fighting system that translates to modern society. There are a few fakers who claim to have mastered the Banke style, as there are for the late Fujita Seiko but Kawakami and Kiyomoto have denied them all.
    In short, good luck in trying to get in there without being an independently wealthy reclusive Japanese scholar with a penchant for punching steel balls and surviving on a couple of hundred calories per day (google them and you'll see what I mean). Although Kawakami has more credibility than Takamatsu den there are still questions over authenticity.
