Ninpo Literally

Means 'Nin' used in the words 'Ninja', 'Ninjutsu' and 'Ninpo', consists of 2 radicals or parts. The upper radical called 'Yaiba' means the cutting edge of a blade. The lower radical is read as 'Kokoro' or 'Shin' meaning heart. 'Nin' is also used to write 'Nintai' which means perseverance or patience, implying the important thing for a Ninja is to be patient under impossible circumstances and persevere when he cannot find a way to succeed on a mission. This form of thinking, the spirit of perseverance, is called 'Ninja Seishin'. In Ninpo the practitioner learns patience and perseverance, which we view as its fundamental characteristics and with that one is able to deal with a whole variety of situations. In addition, practicing Ninpo helps to increase one's mental concentration dramatically, leading to more efficient thought processing.
