Black Belt Plus

The topic of "ninjas" was featured on the cover of an early edition of Black Belt years before the movie craze began. In the article ninjutsu was described as the "weirdest martial arts ever invented," and goes on to call the black cladded assassin the “espionage agents of Japan." This December 1966 cover was beautifully illustrated by Curtis Voss.
