The Chinese fore runner to the Japanese Ninja. Several thousand years older, Shinobi hid within the Chinese Beggar King’s empire, and maintained its position by assassinating enemies of the Beggar King. The vast 20 Million plus Beggar Society within the Chinese Empire was as powerful as the Chinese Government and larger than the Chinese Army.
For centuries the Beggar King could call on the Shinobi Assassin to remove his opponents. Shrouded in secrecy Shinobi was only taught to a few. There are no throws, trips, takedowns, armlock/wristlocks as in Ninjitsu. The Shinobi agent did not Spy or gather Information. Therefore he had only one purpose..
