One of the most common things heard around the world of Ninjutsu, especially within the Bujinkan, is the statement: "That's not how it's done in Japan." This, and the implied slight of someone being "old-school" is supposed to differentiate between someone doing it right from those who are doing it "wrong".

I'll be discussing this perception, as well as another mistaken concept - that of what is and what is not "traditional" within the context of Ninjutsu.
