It was survival based martial arts which was supposedly considered mysterious by superstitious japanese. Thus the ninja as a magical fighter seemed to be born within popular culture.
The mountain clans were smart. They would drain small eggs so that thye were hollow, fill the insides with spices like pepper and or druggy types that would cause hallucinations, then with rice (which can easily become a glue paste) cover the opening in the egg. Wala, they have bombs that they could use in combat.
The shuriken/ninja star? it was made to distract an oppenent in combat not really hurt them (thrown), or placed within the palm of a hand to make a fist weapon that would hurt the oppenent by grabbing them with one hand and with the other (shuriken in hand) flicking/smashing the fist with the ninja star along vital points causing damage.
anyways im getting carried away...
well I have made my decision.
I called a few places around me about 10 min driving time and they got back to me. I talked to the dude and met up with him at the place. Its a nice little gym/studio. They teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu,MMA. They even have their own mini octagon. I start class on tuesday first with kickboxing then Freestyle/mma after. Its gonna be a fun day!

One of the best damn anime's ever created... well second to Monoke Hime which I must say was pretty #$%!ing good. (not that its bad, but it doesnt come close to the anime of the past.)

He was a samurai (the sword and clothes are a give away)
Jubei was based on a real samurai Jubei Kibagami is a homage to the famed Japanese samurai folk hero Yagyu Jubei.
It was a oversight by the creatator to call him a ninja (Samurais, ninjas and assassins are often mixed up by people that dont know what there talking about)
Compaires Ninjas to Smaurai Jack
Be warned wii are going very off topic
Curse my ramblein
Back on topic
yes it is based off the swordman hero, however, theres a large misconception which misinterprets a ninja as one who either has no honor or dresses in a black jumpsuit. The character Jubei in the ninja scrolls could have very well been a ninja. Ask yourself this, does he fight without the sword at one point?
The truth is, wikipedia is not a valid source of information. It is user generated, and we must keep that in mind. The fact, is that jubei in the series and film is a masterless ninja who is profitiant in the sword. Feel free to look up the details on "ninja scroll".
