Way Of Ninja would like to thank all participants and contributors for their support in the Day Of Ninja movement. With the purpose of making everyone’s ‘way of ninja’ a reality, please lend your support, experience and expertise to each other as fellow aspiring ninjas.
To our contributors, a special thank you. Because this is the first Day Of Ninja, I might not have managed to make the movement huge enough. I apologise for this and will make it better the next year. I am, however, quite happy with the turn out and how supportive this community has been. Thanks again.
Summary of Day Of Ninja Posts
Happy Day Of Ninja 2013 by Logen
The day of the movement began with my reflections about Way Of Ninja as a community and what the future direction of this website would be; fostering friendships and helping aspiring ninja to make their ‘way of ninja’ a reality.
Correct me if I'm wrong but #DayOfNinja is going to last 48 hours for me. When the day ends in Asia Pacific, it begins in the Americas.

Pressure Points for Combat: Tenketsu Jutsu by Jay Edwards
Next came the pressure points special by Jay Edwards, who is the chief instructor of OCFM London. The article sought to explain how pressure points were used in combat and emphasised that its effectiveness depended partially on a person’s tolerance.
@mywayofninja thanks for the opportunity my friend. Day of Ninja is spawned!

Making Movies… NINJA STYLE! by Joey Corpora
If you were wondering, where does the road lead as a ninja, traceur or martial artist? Here’s one of them. Joey is the director of an independent film company that specialises in action films (with ninjas in some). With his team’s Ninjutsu training, take a look at what they do.
Google Sins of the Dragon and watch the trailer for #dayofninja …or if you're feeling really ambitious, watch the whole movie!
