Neither. A ninja was trained in espionage and clandestine operations during feudal Japan. Also known as shinobi, ninjas assassinated enemy leaders and infiltrated enemy positions, forts, etc. Since kung fu is a Chinese martial art, a ninja wouldn't practice it. Ninjas were trained in ninjutsu, which included disciplines of stealthy movement, self-disguising, and combat techniques.

Chinese monks and war generals escaped by boat to the east when Beijing was Invaded and landed in Japan. History tells that a Chinese monk meets with a samurai, teaching the samurai the art of invisibility/stealth(Ninjutsu). Thats why Ninjutsu has Chinese philosophies and fighting tactics. For example Dim Mak (Preassure Points) originated from India was past to Tibet then to the chinese Shaolin monks then during the invasion the Chinese monk thought it to the samurai.

Later on when Ninjas were sent to assassination missions or had to defend there selves from samurais this gave the ninjas a bad reputation. Later on Bushidos banned Ninjutsu. But still was secretly passed down through generations and survived secretly.
