As fascinating as its name is, ninja star or shuriken is an amazing martial arts tool and self defense weapon. Ninja stars are also known as the throwing stars as they are thrown in the opponent's direction from a certain distance rather than attacking directly. Where was this throwing weapon originated from? Let’s find out!

Ninja star, known as shuriken, was originated in the medieval era of Japan. It was used in battles to maim (hurting/injuring) the opponent so that it is unable to attack. It was also meant for disabling the sword or any other weapon of the enemy.

Dated as early as 600 AD, it has also been recorded that the idea of shuriken was born when a prince threw a sliced piece of the vegetable in the deer’s eye to maim it in a way that it can be caught. However, ninja stars were later widely used in the battles too.

Even now, in martial arts, different techniques and uses of throwing stars are taught. It is a light weighted weapon that can be handled easily. It’s small in size, and because of that, it can be hidden very certainly. Basically, there are two kinds of ninja stars, one with pins on the four sides circularly, and the other is like metal blade discs, just like a Frisbee. Both are useful, but the ones as metal blade discs are more widely used in martial arts and self-defense.

The efficiency, accuracy, and speed of the ninja throwing stars depend on the user and the shape and material used to make the shuriken. The heavier the stars would be, the less likeliness would be of the accuracy. Similarly, the lighter and sharped edged stars are more accurate.
