Ninpo Taijutsu our (Self defense method at Boston Martial Arts Center) is an excellent method of training for environments which are unpredictable or unstable. If you compare punching and kicking on a patch of ice to punching and kicking in a dojo with a controlled surface they are two entirely different experiences. In our everyday lives we encounter things, which are unexpected, and when you train with Ninpo Taijutsu this creates a system of built in reflexes, which can deal with unexpected situations. It is important to remember that in the history of this martial art system it was used for protection and defense and not for recreation. Therefore, it had to be designed to deal with unpredictable circumstances.

I was working on kenjutsu last week and was moving with my training partner changing kamae (position based on what my spirit is sensing in relation to a changing environment). This requires the mind and body to stay sharp, because if your mind floats for one moment you could be in over your head. A good starting place on how not to get in over your head is “Stay in the moment, not before or after.”
The longer we train in martial arts, the deeper we come to understand ourselves. This deep understanding comes from first training with the physical techniques and then studying the effect the training has on us. If you train with a sincere heart, you can gain great value from martial arts.
