Sinobi under the fear of divine vengeance promised to keep secret their knowledge and use the skills to steal.

Japanese researchers found the oath of the ninja, written about 300 years ago. In your vows ninja named Inosuke Kizu expressed gratitude to the mentor who taught him ninjutsu — “the art of stealth”.
