The Hombu, where ninjas train, Tokyo, Japan. This dojo holds a special place in my heart as I've been training in ninjutsu since I was 20 years only. My sensei is Brian Tritico and he can always be seen at the Houston Japan Fest. Ninjas are sort of a mythical past in Japan and most Japanese now don't know much about as they have moved into technology but ninjas hold a special moment in japanese history as they were pivotal in the success of the ruling warlods within certain provinces. It took me 20 years to finally make my pilgrimage to finally meet the Grand master Hatsumi Masaaki. On either side of the walls you can see the wooden plates which are the names of those who are 15th dan and above. Remember, only a ninja can kill a ninja. It was a true honor to train in the presence of the last known ninja because after he is gone, that's it.
