Learn the lethal arts of the Ninja in this two-hour session in a Kyoto dojo. Two experts guided me and my 10-year-old son, plus another family of three, with classic Japanese hospitality and patience. We learned so much about Ninja weaponry and the techniques for using them effectively. If you know your Ninja Turtles, then you already know about some of the weapons—but even a rope can be lethal in the hands of a Ninja warrior! The session was educational but also a lot of fun. And at the end we got to take photos in our Ninja clothes in various sword-fighting poses. The guides were highly skilled but also super friendly. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan for sure!
