Antony Cummins speaks about his upcoming book, Ninja Skills.
The shadowy figure of the ninja – expert commando, secret agent, maverick who operates outside social norms – continues to exert fascination in the West, yet much of what is presented as ninja fact today is distorted or wrong. The truth about the ninja is so much more complex and intriguing than the Hollywood clichés we know today. You will hear about ninja warcraft, including clever ideas for infiltrating an enemy compound (from wearing ‘silent sandals’ to faking passes and passwords), tactics for hiding and retreat (in the racoon dog retreat, a ninja will crouch low and halt, allowing the pursuer to collide with him at speed, whereupon the agent kills his enemy), and ways of crossing marshes and water (for example, with special shoes made of boards, or using a foldaway floating seat).
