I receive a lot of emails asking various questions so, here are a few that have come in recently.
“Sensei, I like the winter training posts you have put up, are you going to film anything new to add to the posts?” John G, Illinois
Yes I am! We just cleared a small storm that left 14 inches of snow here, and a nother new storm is coming in next Thursday. I hope to be able to head out to camp Shinobi to film some material next week.
Thanks for the question,
“Hi Airyu, do you have a list of the books and DVD’s you have read or watched and what is good and worthwhile to review?” William T, Mississippi
Of course, silly Ninja! I have a long list of material I have studied and that will be posted in the new Members section that is going to be released on March 15, 2014! Stay tuned for more on this upgrade.
“Do you train with a sword? Mark W. Conn.
Yes, I train with a very large assortment of weapons, and tools(ningu). You never know when you will be required to utilize something as a weapon or tool, so a wide breadth of knowledge can be very helpful. As I said in the above reply, the new members section will be packed with training information including various weapons both traditional and modern!
“Sensei, what do you think about Crossfit.” Sam P., Oregon
Well that is a loaded question! I have been a big fan of many training programs for well over 35 years. During this time I have been training and absorbing from many areas and people. Crossfit is not really a new program for me, as many of the short HIT programs it utilizes are very familiar, having been a fan and student of Coach Davies and Mark Twight material. Just as a side note I have and do teach several programs, one of which is Ninja Warrior Conditioning™, that will be released this year to the general public. But also a great deal of this is being prepared for our members, keep in touch so you can join up and receive the material.
Train hard and intense!
Alright ninjutsu fans thank you for the questions, feedback and keep them coming as it keeps my motivation high so I can continue to bring great material back to you.
