Simple question for thought though. If Ninjitsu is not a Japanese term/word, what is the problem with someone outside of Japan using the term?

Are you really trying to say that ninjutsu is not a Japanese word?

No, he's trying to say that ninjitsu is not a Japanese word. Which, I guess is correct, even though some (like Kim and Duncan) have insisted it was in the past.

"Another simple question: why haven't we read any complaints from native-born Japanese?"

1 Do we have any here?
2 We have multiple individuals who live and work in Japan. They know the language. Does it matter that they are natives?
