Japanese university awards first-ever degree in ninja studies

Jun 28, 2020 15:43 IST

A university in Japan has awarded the first-ever degree in ninja studies to Genichi Mitsuhashi, who spent two years honing his martial arts skills and examining the true nature of stealth fighters. He enrolled in the master's degree at Mie University’s International Ninja Research Centre in spring 2018 and presented his thesis on how ninja managed mountain forests in Iga between the 17th and 19th centuries. The 45-year-old even bought a house in Iga province, the birthplace of the ninja, and cultivated his own rice and vegetables on the land to understand the practice.
