What Is Genjutsu in Ninjutsu?

Learn about genjutsu from Sensei Oliver Martin in this ninjutsu Howcast video.


Genjutsu is primarily any technique that could be used to create an impression or an illusion of some sort to distract or occupy your opponent. And it can be used in multifaceted ways. One example might be that dressing up in some sort of costume or even a scary mask and coming up upon some would-be attackers and scaring them with that mask would be one idea of creating a scary influence that might help you in your survival tactic. So that would be one example of what Genjutsu is, creating an illusory effect to win some sort of altercation.
