Endurance (also called, Wind, Stamina, Resilience)
Endurance is the athletic attribute of an individual to exert him/herself and remain active for a long period of time, as well as its ability to resist, withstand, recover from, and have immunity to wounds, or fatigue. Normally this breaks down into either aerobic or anaerobic conditioning.
An Ninja from the past had a reputation of being able to go to extreme lengths of endurance and or stamina to accomplish their missions. Traveling long distances in short amounts of time, holding positions while their enemy searched in vain for them, even holding their breath while submerged or hidden under a layer of earth. The Ninja knew that their training had to push the limits in order to develop these skills.
So let me start you with a question, “How do you train to develop endurance?” my next post will give you some tips and training ideas that I incorporate into my daily training as well as that of my students.
