Ninja Swords, Katanas, Samurai Swords
Ninja Swords differ from Samurai swords in that they were not passed from generation to generation. Most Ninja swords (ninja-to) were cheap, disposable multi purpose tools. Modern blades are far superior to the poorly constructed blades in the days of the ninja warrior.
Ninja Sword Targets
It is just as effective to stop an opponent from their ability to fight, as to kill them. Ninja Masters, and swordsmen have traditionally aimed for the following targets: Hands, biceps, neck muscles, upper and outer thighs, shins, and calves. Any of these attacks would render your opponent unable to fight back.

Ninja Sword Fighting Techniques
Unlike what you see in the movies, swords rarely struck each other. To do so would most likely break one of the blades. Ninja, and Samurai alike fought skilled battles of positioning to get a single deadly slash and stab into their opponent. Swords were commonly used to guide or direct the other attackers blows, but rarely or never used to strike or directly block another sword attack.
Kenjutsu of nin-po (ninja sword fighting techniques) are detailed further below:
The grip for ninja-to can be either 1 or 2 handed. The most common was the two handed stance, but there are many 1 handed strikes for distance or speed. Steven Hayes says that the sledgehammer grip is completely incorrect. Instead a grip where a small gap is between each hands, and the upper (left) hand is not pressed tightly against the tsuba (hand guard) is preferred. The sword is gripped firmly with the lower 3 fingers, so the upper 2 fingers of each hand can control the subtle angles of moment.
The essence of the ninja sword fighting technique is to cut down the enemy quickly, not to engage in a prolonged sword battle. A swordsman does not simply chop like a crude axe. The blade is drawn across the attacker so that the entire blade ideally is touched to the target.
One of the common techniques is to fling the scabbard at an opponent for the surprise effect and follow with a deadly first strike. Exact dynamics of cutting with a sword of any style is far too complex for a simple article. Basically though, you are to slice with the entire blade, in a way that uses your entire body for power, and leaves your opponent stationary. The sword will naturally pull the flesh (and attacker) closer to you, but this is an ineffective battle technique.
