Ninja Motivational Monday!

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Well, here I am at an undisclosed location in the West were the temp is now 99 degrees, with something for you to ponder:

“Remember for every technique you think you can fall back on, there is a counter. When real battle comes you must remember that some things will not be applicable. Don’t think that any one technique is quintessential.”

Strategy is an integral part of winning…Small mindedness and impatience for victory lead only to self-demise and certain defeat – Soke Masaaki Hatsumi

What is your strategy today? What is your plan to win the day, the week , the month year etc? Do you even have a training plan? This morning it was dark and cool and I said what better time to get some cardio work in with a 2 mile trail run and a few cool down laps in the pool. But the best part of this is, it is a part of my training plan each week 1 day trail run, 1 day weight bearing exercise, 1 day off and then 4 days on for training. A ninja takes every opportunity to hone himself and his craft, today is no different than 1000 years ago. You must constant be honing yourself and skills, conflict waits for no one, and comes unexpectedly. Put yourself into vigorous if not down right harsh training and implement this strategy each and every day.
