Do Ninjutsu fighters participate in mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions?
People who don't know much about Ninjutsu tend to associate it with a sports martial arts category like Taekwondo, Karate, Kung Fu, and others ... might even associate it with mixed martial arts (MMA) as a 21st-century trend. This is a misconception because Ninjutsu is not a competitive martial art in its original purpose, it does not consist of stylish forms of physical techniques or sports. That is, it is a set of effective techniques of all martial arts with the aim of effective self-defense and, if necessary, a quick and deadly attack on the enemy. It can be compared to the Israeli Krav Maga, which also usually does not host competitions for the same reasons as mentioned above.
What is the source of the misconception about Ninjutsu?
Sometimes (MMA) fans may find Ninjutsu impractical in matters of pugilism (amateur or professional boxing). It is sometimes referred to as a "smoke and mirror" martial art. But those who hold these views do not know that they are turning to the paradigm of self-defense in a narrow and unrealistic range of circumstances, such as: fighting in the Octagon, in a bar, on the street, etc. ... where there are laws against injury or murder, and we are solely responsible for our actions. However, in Ninjutsu there is the only rule based on the warrior's survival and self-defense. That is, he will use every means at his disposal, including the art of deception, games, objects, and more ... to overcome the problem. This is a completely different view of the real struggle that only a select few are subjected to. This issue is being studied in the elite units: the army, the police, and forces associated with the security of the state and its citizens. A simple comparison for illustration is the battle between a pit bull and a wolf. Although a pit bull is a mountain of muscle, in a lawless battle with a warrior, with natural survival skills like the wolf, he (the pit bull) has almost no chance.
