One of the vital secret weapons in the ninja warrior's arsenal was the use of metsubishi.

The word metsubishi means literally "to crush the eye". The object of metsubishi is to make the attacker hesitate, giving yourself a brief extra fraction of a moment to ensure your safety while your opponent's sight is temporarily useless. That brief moment can give you the edge where you now have the option of counterattacking or escaping. It is this ability to escape using metsubishi for cover which often created or reinforced the legendary mystical abilities of the ninja to "disappear".

Metsubishi can include a wide range of eye blinders, not just special powder-like substances thrown at attackers. Water, dirt, mud, gravel, sand, pebbles, stones, and ashes are commonly available on the ground when you need them and easy to grab a handful of in a tight spot. More specialized things like ground pepper, oils, stinging nettle hairs, poison liquids, and explosives were prepared and carried with the ninja warrior in small containers with easy access. Some common methods used to carry the metsubishi were things like empty nut shells, hollowed out egg shells

These are just filled with flour for training

See the attached youtube video and at the end you will see one in use.
