How to Become A Modern-Day Ninja Master


The ninja were a military order in Japan. Most people have seen them in movies and fictional books.

They are the guys dressed in the black suits that seem to have amazing powers, such as climbing the outside of buildings with no rope, or seeming to disappear instantly.

Behind ninjutsu you will sometimes see reference to 'hidden powers' or ninja magic. Learning what this is exactly is part of the journey of the ninja master. All of us have the ability to tap into a greater force than we usually display. With training you can master this.

But behind all that mystery is the true story of the ninja master, who has very definite training. The actual martial art has a name, which is ninjutsu. Jutsu is a Japanese word for way.

There is also another Japanese word for way, which is do(pronounced doh)

So you have karate-do, which means the way of the empty hand.

Ninja Training in the US

There are various training schools in the US but before you start I suggest you read up on it. A great resource I have found is by Ninja Fanatic, John Lee.

Cover the ground in his book - Ninja Secrets Revealed - and then you will be more prepared to take your training further.

All such training starts from a desire, which gradually develops into mastery.

Today could be the start of your journey to mastering the ninja art and all its secrets.

Good Luck.

Or as they say in Japanese: "Gunbatte Kudasai"
