No! Wizards have low defense and high offense. In Naruto, a ninja survives a giant shuriken to the spine... with no real defensive gear other than a combat vest. And the shuriken clearly pierces it. Clearly most ninja have a base defense over 120, and given how often someone is spitting fire on somebody else, they are either all water types, or have ridiculous special defense.
However... due to the utterly insane variety of combat methods displayed... I would say that the most accurate description of the characters would be headbanded individuals.
