The ninja were created about 1,100 years ago in feudal Japan. They practiced unconventional warfare, including guerillas warfare, and espionage. Ninja learned many different skills during their training, such as disguises, stealth methods, spiritual refinements, sword, stick and spear tactics, unarmed combat, horsemanship, water training and even meteorology and geography. Ninja learn from a sensei (teacher) in a dojo (martial arts school). Blue, green and red ninja costumes can also be purchased. Boot covers, sword and gloves are not included.
