  Togakure Ryu
The Togakure ryu is a Ninpo[?]/Ninjutsu ryuha that was founded at least 900 years ago by Daisuke Nishina (Togakure), who had learnt Shugendo[?] practices as well as Hakuun ryu[?] Ninjutsu from Kagakure Doshi.
example, Itto ryu dan: The sword is thrown at the enemy/enemies, the Ninja would either retrieve the sword or just run off, depending on whether the enemy was dead or not, they might even steal the enemy's weapons (As most Ninja were poor, the sword they had in the first place was probably stolen).
The Togakure ryu is taught only in Bujinkan, Genbukan, and Jinenkan; but those schools contain Samurai arts that they tend to focus on.

 About   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The ninjutsu ryu of the Togakure family was not formalised until three generations after Daisuke Togakure began to develop it.
It was Daisuke's descendants that developed and refined these notions into the Togakure ryu of ninjutsu, and came to be called by the name ninja.
Most important to our training today is the Togakure ryu ninpo taijutsu, or unarmed methods of moving the body with subtle rather than forceful movements which controls the actions of the attacker and allows the ninja to win whilst expending minimum energy and exposure to the least amount of danger.
