Meet Japan’s most aspiring real Ninja, Mr. Yaen Sasuke. Sasuke has been training Nin-jutsu since he was three years old, and he has won the National Shuriken Throwing Competition two years in a row, in 2019 and 2020, for the first time in history.

In this video, Sasuke explains what Nin-jutsu is about, his missions as a present-day Ninja, the relationship with his master Mr. Jinichi Kawakami (aka the “Last Ninja”), and things he taught to the world’s renowned actor, Mr. Keanu Reeves, for the movie John Wick 3.
