Ninja was a covert agent during the Kamakura(1185-) era to Edo era ( – 1868). They used to work individually or under powerful feudal lords (daimyo, in Japanese) and committed some intelligence assessment, sabotage, infiltration tactics and assassination. They are widely known for their very unique technique, practice and equipment.
