Ninjutsu sometimes used interchangeably with the modern term ninpō is the strategy and tactics ofunconventional warfare, guerrilla warfare and espionage purportedly practiced by the shinobi (commonly known outside of Japan as ninja).
Ninjutsu was more an art of tricks than a martial art. Ninjutsu was a separate discipline in some traditional Japanese schools, which integrated study of more conventional martial arts (taijutsu) along with shurikenjutsu, kenjutsu, sojutsu,bōjutsu and others.
According to Bujinkan members, Ninja Jūhakkei (“the eighteen disciplines”) were first stated in the scrolls of Togakure-ryū and became definitive for all ninjutsu schools. Ninja jūhakkei was often studied along with Bugei jūhappan (the “eighteen samurai fighting art skills”).
