Ways Throwing Stars Were Used at the Time of Real Ninja
Basically, people have been misled by their own delusions into thinking that ninja stars were used to kill other people in wars and battles. When the truth is quite the opposite. The throwing weapon, shuriken, was supposed to only distract or slightly injure the opponent, so that the one using it can make a quick escape.
As you may know, real ninja warriors only needed but a fraction of second to vanish from anyone’s sight. For they were trained since a young age to become one with the darkness and hide in the shadows (or that’s why Hollywood movies say about them).
In actuality, ninja star was just a tool for distraction and after using it the highly trained warriors, in the art of stealth, did their best to make a run for a safe place to take cover, and strategize a new way of attack.

Most weapons that are flung towards an opponent do not differ from one another. Only in ways where you can have a better grip. For example, best way to hold throwing knives will never be the same as the proper way to hold a ninja star, because the weapon’s whole design is totally different.

- Keep checking if the tip(s) of the star are still sharp
- Keep an eye out for any damage to the throwing stars for sale in stores near you, and which you can buy anytime online as well
Did Only the Ninja Use Throwing Stars?
Contrary to popular belief, back in the feudal era of Japan, the shuriken was not only used by real ninja but samurai warriors as well. However, the first use of a similar weapon can be linked back to some time in over a millennium, way before the time of ninja or the samurai.
While, both type of Japanese warriors used the throwing stars yet the way they utilized it was completely different.

This could scare anyone, it’s not just us thinking like that right?
