    Default Ninjutsu Scroll Reproduction

    Do anyone know where I can buy the scrolls reproduced? Do you know a website. I am interested in the scrolls.

    All you really need is the bansenshukai, ninpiden, shoninki. You can either buy em from some folks, or view them online at ninpo.org. These are the only ninja writings that are in the public domain.

    Eddie,

    These scrolls are without imediate value for beginners and non-practitioners.
    It's the sincere and hard training which is important.
    Dedicate yourself honestly to one of the kans and start training.

    Sincerely,

    Let's not forget that the 'big three' (shoninki, bansenshukai, ninpiden) were written for a warrior class audience - making it difficult to decipher for 'outsiders' to Fujibayashi's and others systems would be counter-productive. There are also plenty of modern Japanese readers for these works too. These books have been studied by martial artists as a small part of their overall education along with other side-line studies like tea ceremony, noh theatre, chinese literature etc for generations.

    That being said, there are also many mistakes included in these books.
