Welcome to Forgotten Sword

We are researchers and practitioners of historically accurate Chinese martial arts. Every day we work with the ancient Chinese classics, forgotten manuscripts, archeological finds, and more. Ultimately, we ensure our work translates into real working martial arts skills and knowledge.

At the core of our endeavour is the research and practice of Yin Fa 隱法, the Chinese art of stealth and the origin of the Japanese Ninja 忍者. We are currently compiling a book on Yin Fa 隱法 and the stealth operatives of ancient China – it will be the first of its kind, in any culture.
