Headscarf-wearing women can be seen in a raft of gravity defying poses as they train for battle.
At a club based 25 miles out of Tehran 4,000 ladies train to become kunoichi.
The women learn to kill silently, leap over walls and hide on the mountain side at the Jughin Castle.
The club has been open since 1989.
Iran has conscription for men aged 18, but it is limited to 18 months service, so these kunoichi could prove vital.
Pupils at the school are taught to use weapons – including the bow, swords, nunchucks and shurikens – small traditional Japanese implements known as “swords in the hand”.
