Way Of Ninja's Role
1. Adapting the old way of the warrior
Way Of Ninja delves into Japanese history for inspiration on warrior skills and characteristics that are still relevant to the modern world. Since it is impossible to train in everything, you will need to pick the warrior attributes that you most desire.
These are some skill sets that will help you on your way.
Train in a martial art best suited to your goals (i.e. fitness, self-defense oriented) and personality. Get ideas to train in higher level concepts like distance, reaction and timing.
Physical training that focuses on technical ability, speed, strength and cardiovascular stamina. Examples includes running, calisthenics and rock climbing.
Mobility-based physical activities that primarily focuses on getting past obstacles. Examples includes disciplines like parkour, free running and MovNat.
Methods meant to develop the warrior mindset and mental abilities in awareness, focus and management of negative emotions.
Random knowledge, abilities and hacks that are useful for the modern warrior and may cover emotional intelligence, privacy and dealing with conflict. Examples include learning to interpret body language, maintain privacy, influence behavior and deter crimes.
2. Make your training sustainable
The way of the warrior is a lifetime endeavour, in which you continually improve your mind, abilities and knowledge. Therefore, in order to help you stay on your path – despite fluctuating motivation, work-life imbalance, family responsibilities, stress and injury – use the following resources.
Resource on making training work
Solutions to cope with training and have a life.
Modern warrior community
A place for mutual support, motivation and camaraderie among fellow warriors who train and live their own warrior ideals.
Platform to share your progress, training and reflections
A “journal” to share your training progress, insights and stories.
Both planned and spontaneous events that tosses up your training, test your abilities and allows you to mingle with fellow warriors.
Ultimately, Way Of Ninja wants to be useful in your warrior journey so that you are able to persevere in being the best version of yourself physically and mentally.
