Ninjas were Japanese fighters who lived in Japan about 700 years ago. These warriors were originally called shinobi-no-mono. Also, Ninjas were not just fighters, they were fighters who were also spies!

Ninjas received special training from a very young age. They had to be experts at handling swords, throwing knives, and using spears and bows. However, the main weapon of Ninja was the sword. They used metallic claws on their feet, which helped them climb and protected their feet. Apart from this, Ninjas also had to know about explosive and poisonous substances, to be a good path finder, and to survive in difficult situations.

These trained ninjas worked on the order of their masters. They secretly gathered information about the enemy and destroyed enemy’s food and weapon supplies when needed. A ninja usually wore black clothes, which helped him to hide in the dark.

Japanese believe that a Ninja had special magical powers that helped him fly! No wonder the ninja is almost considered a superman in the history of Japan!
