As if a sharp sickle and a heavy iron weight were both not dangerous enough as separate weapons, the Japanese decided to combine those two with a metal chain, giving birth to the kusarigama. The deadly chain-sickle weapon was developed during the Muromachi era, and has its own unique art of handling known as kusarigama-jutsu
10: The Kakute Ring
Kakute are small metal rings with spikes protruding from it, worn as a finger ring. These weapons are very much favored by the kunoichi, or female ninjas. The reason is that kakute rings are simple to use, and are concealable as they look like any other normal ring, but with spikes hidden inside the hand. The weapon is obviously only used up close, but still, is very capable of delivering
Imagine brass knuckles, but with forward facing iron nails like bear claws. That's the tekko-kagi, a ninja weapon that has a close resemblance to the X-man Wolverine's protruding adamantium claws. The origin of the weapon was a rather peaceful one, as a tool for farmers to reap weeds. But in the hands of a skilled ninja
8: Neko Te
If you think the tekko-kagi was scary enough, then you should take a look at the neko-te. It is also a claw like weapon, but worn like a glove, and with the blades protruding directly from the ends of the fingers much like a cat's claws. And that's exactly what the neko-te
Metsubushis are the pepper sprays of the ninja world. The name translates to "crush the eyes", and is one thing a ninja's opponent should avoid at all costs when in a fight. The weapon could come in many forms, but are typically delivered from a small pipe that can be blown at an enemy, or from an egg shell that can be thrown
Many people know of the katana, the traditional Japanese sword used by samurai during ancient and feudal times. But ninjas also have their own version of the katana, known as ninjato. Compared to the swords carried by the samurai, ninjato were smaller in size and more compact in form. The overall length is usually less than 60 cm, and is relatively thick and straight with no curves
The fukiya is a type of blowgun used in Japan. The practice still exists today in modern Japan as a national sport similar to archery. However, fukiya was known in the past as a ninja's weapon, with numerous ninjutsu schools specializing in its use. Ninjas would often fire two inch long poison darts, or fukibari, from a concealed location. The dart itself is usually not enough to kill a target
Sai, the weapon familiar to those in the West as the weapon of choice for Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the female assassin Elektra from Marvel. Traditionally used on the islands of Okinawa, the sai is useful as both an offensive and defensive weapon. The weapon has a very distinctive look as a long pointed metal baton with two curved prongs projecting from the sides. Sai users practice a variety of fighting styles
The kunai is a dagger-like-weapon which serves as one of ninja's most basic but multi-functional weapons. Historically, it is believed to have been derived from hand trowels, as farmers and masons of feudal Japan used to make weapons out of any spare tools they could get their hands on. Kunais are crafted from metal into sharp blades with balance and weight in mind, as they are used both
We've talked about how poison could be used to compliment some weapons, often coated on tips of blades. But its deadliness and wide variety makes it deserve a special mention on this list. As stealthy assassins, ninjas could not avoid using poison, as it enables them to kill their targets without confronting them directly. Poisons could be placed directly into the food and drinks
You definitely can't talk about ninjas without mentioning shurikens. Shuriken literally translates to "sword hidden in user's hand", and are sometimes referred to as throwing stars in the West. They are crafted into many different shapes and sizes, usually with a hole at the center. Shurikens might be small, but are essential tools in a ninja's arsenal. They often serve a secondary role, as a nuisance or distraction when facing an enemy. A skilled user would target
Lit cigarette butts are a highly useful decoy a shinobi practitioner could use to end a deadly encounter. Just carry a shortened butt on your ear, light up when it's time and it's IMMEDIATELY READY for use (it has to be shortened because it's 10x harder to pitch a full cigarette). Just clip a cigarette in half and carry it on your ear. You should have 2-3 seconds to end the threat. You have the right to carry a pen anywhere on the planet (including a plane or courtroom). Use that
Ninja techniques are highly applicable to real life once you know and apply the reality of all weapons, especially sharp weapons when it comes to street fighting. All "soft" martial arts are HIGHLY EFFECTIVE with SHARP WEAPONS (i.e. aikido, systema, wing chun, tai chi, kung fu). For example: if you're feeling anxious in a dangerous area/situation, just light up a cigarette. Any shinobi worth his own salt carries a steel pen in his pocket. Pitch the cig in his face, grab your weapon
You don't know your asian weapons and how there used well enough to make this video or properly rank the weapons just one is traditionally sai were never bladed and yes you might be able to stab some one but they were usually used as a blunt weapon where you'd break the persons bones rather then cut or stab with them. I won't get into all the inaccuracies of this video but they kinda make me cringe at your lack of knowledge and or research.

10. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost (1874-1963)
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Meaning of the Poem.
This poem deals with that big noble question of “How to make a difference in the world?” On first reading, it tells us that the choice one makes really does matter, ending: “I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.”
