Should I Learn Japanese to Study Ninjutsu?

Find out about the importance of learning Japanese to study ninjutsu from Sensei Oliver Martin in this Howcast video.


If you're going to learn Ninjutsu, I think it's important to learn some Japanese because the language and the translation process helps you understand some of the nuances that you might not be able to understand if you're always being translated to. And so it's also important to learn another culture and learn the culture that this art reaches highest level in. And so that's why I encourage people and my students to travel to Japan, take Japanese classes, and learn more about the terminology and the ideas and philosophy behind many of the things that are contained within Japanese language as it relates to Ninjutsu training.
