It has been far too long since I have posted anything to this website, but instead I have been very active on the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/NinjutsuTrainingOnline) so here is my debut blog post to get me back in the groove again!
Many of you who know me, understand that I am not a man that abides by traditions. Ninjutsu has some practitioners that are so stuck on the traditional technique or approach that they are missing a wide world of modern tactics that would aide them in their skill development.
We could look at Combative arts, firearms training, covert entry tactics etc., what we need to do is to be open to new and innovative methods while keeping true to our heritage in ninjutsu. Back in the ancient times where a technique might mean life or death to a ninja, we should also apply this to our training today. When you are in or out of the dojo, you should be training to improve your modern tactics. Learn from others, cross train and practice additional skill sets apply the various strategies and philosophies from our ancient traditions and watch your skills grow.
So, here are a few suggestions to start integrating into your practice:
Covert entry skills
Defensive driving skills
Ok that is enough for now, but I assume you get my point. Modern tactics are evolving and so should your skills.
