Example text

52 As the report continues, it reveals an interesting anecdote regarding the rappa: Hōjō Ujinao controlled the eight provinces of Kantō, of which all the neighboring provinces were enemies, which caused ceaseless wars. During the autumn of 1580, Takeda Katsuyori and his son Takeda Nobukatsu commanded the armies of Shinano, Kai, and Suruga. They initially made movement towards Sanmaibashi with Suruga, to cover their flank with the wide and dangerous Kisegawa river. All the army established the camp in the full one with Ukishimagahara.

Indd 48 12/18/09 8:51:05 AM THE PUBLIC RECORD OF NINJUTSU 49 The Takeda Family’s Encounter with the Rappa Another report from the same chronicle refers to an action that occurred five years after the one mentioned previously. This time, it was the Hōjō who used the ninja against their enemies, the Takeda. The name used was rappa (乱破) rather than kusa, but according to the context, it appears clear that their role was similar to the traditional role of the ninja, namely to sow confusion in the enemy lines.

When boarding enemy ships, the pirates of this school used a hook, like many others. However, this hook, called a kagi-nawa, formed an integral part of the arsenal used by the ninja during their various missions. The use of this hook with a fine cord, generally made from braided woman’s hair, gave rise to many combat techniques included in the practice of ancient ninjutsu. These disciplines are: ✦ ✦ ✦ ✦ kaginawa-jutsu (the technique of using the hook and cord) kusarigama-jutsu (the technique of using the chain and sickle) torinawa-jutsu (the technique of using the cord to bind the adversary in combat) kusari-jutsu (the technique of using the chain) It is a solid assumption that the techniques used by Japanese pirates influenced ninjutsu, as well as many other combat styles.
