Hensōjutsu a Japanese martial art skill

“Hensōjutsu (変装術) was a Japanese martial art skill involving disguise, impersonation, and infiltration.

In some ninja clans it was known as the “Shichi Hō De” (七方出), or “seven ways of going” (one form of ninjutsu that has a person play a role much like an actor does in impersonating people). A ninja had to appear either as a priest, samurai, merchant, craftsman, performer, puppeteer, or farmer. To accomplish this, the ninja was a well studied sociologist, observing people in other towns for long periods of time until, just like actors, ninjas could blend into the crowd.”
