comment Does ninjutsu qualify as a martial art?
@stslavik: Are Judo, BJJ, Krav Maga, Kempo Karate and others martial arts, even though they are not traditional martial arts? Yes. As there are blocks, kata, joint locks, throws, weapons training and more in Ninjutsu, of course it qualifies too. The criticism has been regarding if it is a traditional art or not, as extensive proof has not been provided regarding linage etc of the schools. But, you have to remember that a lot was passed down from person to person, there are not written proof for everything.

comment Measuring the foot when buying Tabi (and giving the size using the japanese convention)
I checked out Japan language, it is defenitely off topic there as they only seem to disuss the language.

Tabi is considered training equipment in some martial arts, which is why I reasoned it is on topic. I am sure we can find other concepts and equipment which are important to some martial arts but also has other uses. That being said, it might not be a good place to get an answer. But that has more to do with the current state of this site.
