Historical ninja were known to wear dark red or dark blue suits (common and visually better for hiding in the night), or even green and yellow ones (to match the bamboo that often grew during fall). The uniform traditionnaly worn by modern practitionners of all forms of Ninjutsu is a type of black cotton keikogi, fitted loosely to allow freedom of movement. A belt, or Obi, is wrapped around the jacket and is indicative of the rank (White for beginners; Green for male Kyū ranks; Red for female Kyū ranks; and Black for Dan ranks). A felt patch reflecting the practitionner's rank is also applied close to the heart:
The ninja outfit is complemented by Tabi (for indoor use only) or Jika Tabi (for outdoor use only), split-toed ankle-high boots that improves gripping, wall/rope climbing and silent walking. Optionally, you can also wear a pair of Tekko, a protective forearm-and-hand sleeve and Kyahan, which fasten the bottom of the trousers to the ankles.
For trial classes, if you are not equipped, you will be expected to wear at minima black sweatpants, black socks, and a black t-shirt when attending classes in our Dōjō.
Weapons in Bujinkan
Modern Budō Taijutsu makes use of a very wide variety of weapons to teach various distances as variations similar techniques or concepts, contained in the Buki Waza section of our teaching program. The shortest distance for a technique is Taijutsu (unarmed), and distances are then taught from the shortest weapons to the longest (Tantō, Shōtō, Hanbō, Bokken, Jō, Bō, Yari and Naginata). Each of these wooden weapons also exists in a padded version that we may use for safe training. It is recommended that practitionners acquire their own set of weapons and brings them whenever a weapons class is scheduled by the instructor.
In addition, there are many other weapons that are not part of the basic program but are widely used in the nine Ryūha: the Jutte (non bladed weapon with a single prong to capture parts of the body), the Nawa (rope), the Kusari-Fundo (weighted chain), the Kusari Gama (sickle with chain), the Kunai (a bladed digging tool) as well various versions of Shuriken (throwing weapons).
