Why is the art no longer called Ninjutsu?

0

The Bujinkan is comprised of nine ryuha, or traditions, only three of which have origins in ninjutsu. It has been speculated that the name Ninjutsu was changed to Budo Taijutsu in order to avoid certain negative ideas or stereotypes people often associate with the image of the ninja as a dark assassin and mercenary. Many aspects of ninjutsu and ninpo are a regular part of training, such as stealth applied to both physical and psychological aspects of combat, and persevering and training for survival against all odds.
