During the war between the countries of Gohda and Ogawara there were at least two identified ninja masters, one was Master Gunzo (軍蔵 Gunzō) who was assassinated by the Azuma Ninja at the Enyu Temple. The other one was Master Denki (伝鬼 Denki) who was also assassinated but at the Kasumiume Bridge because he killed Todo, a Gohda official. Not much is known on this groups history and it is possible that they are not a clan like the Azuma.
The Ogawara Ninja's skills were never fully expressed in traditional ninjutsu, mainly because their daimyo used them as regular guards instead of strategically deploying them as spies. However at times they were known to apply stealth by hiding on rooftops and suprising unaware Azuma Ninja. When and intruder was discovered they showed skill in the art of kenjutsu/sword fighting. However, due to the fact they had at least two ninja masters is proof that they are indeed masters of ninjutsu. Which includes combat, espionage, assassination, and stealth, though whenever they crossed paths with Master Rikimaru's young Azuma students. The young students usually made short work of them due to their level of skill when applying flawless stealth in the field. Ogawara Ninja also trained kunoichi just as the Azuma Ninja once did.
