International Ninja Day
Assassination and infiltration are just a few of the many skills that a ninja can master. The ninja are clad in black from head to foot, and appear out of the darkness like hawks on stolen wings. They strike their prey, disappearing without leaving any trace.
Rumours have it that Ninjas are masters of KujiKiri. This eastern magic practice allows them to combine their natural ability to move as ghosts with supernatural abilities. International Ninja Day commemorates and honors these ancient warriors from Japan and China.

Understanding the history and origins of International Ninja Day is essential in order to fully appreciate its significance. The Sengoku period saw the original Ninja as warriors from the Iga Province in Japan.
These warriors were born from the rural poor and had no access to armor, weapons or training. Their own skills and abilities were all they had. A few of the key weapons were small enough that they could be tucked into a large shirt or belt.
This may be why many of the weapons used by the ninja come from agricultural roots such as the Kunai or sickles. They were also disguised weapons. They can make it appear that the ninja is a farmer who works in his field rather than an infiltration-focused assassin.
Actually, the “traditional” black clothing worn by ninjas was inspired by how they were presented in theatre. They were the ordinary people in their region and therefore invisible to the ruling classes. They were not identifiable by their clothes, weapons, banner, or nationality. They were just the average citizens of their country, and therefore they are virtually invisible.
This idea was represented in the theater by stage hands who played the role of the ninjas. They wore black clothing that covered their heads and made them virtually invisible against the black backdrop of the stage. These stage-hands were not something that people used to see, so it was a surprise when they suddenly appeared in the play.
