Sensei Mark Roemke, 15th Dan, Dai Shihan, is the founder of Pathways Dojo and Ninja Training TV. Kenneth Clarkson is the Director of Pathways Dojo's Ninjas in Nature program. In this blog they dive into the skills that cross the boundaries of the arts of the ninja and the arts of nature awareness and survival training. Along the way they share mentoring tips that they use to engage, activate, and create full ninja stoke in their students.
This is Mark Roemke. I am a 15th Dan practitioner of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. This is our initial blog where I will be diving deep into discussions of this art. In this first blog, I explain in the video below a little bit about myself and the art of ninjutsu, and specifically, what the art of the ninja means to me.
I started studying martial arts when I was seven years old. I have been studying for a long time. I've been punched, kicked, and thrown around quite a bit. I'd love to tell you more about what I've learned along the way, and what gets me stoked about martial arts. Hopefully you will experience this stoke as well.
I'd love you to come along on this ninja journey. In this blog series, I will dive into more detail about some of my favorite videos from our Ninja Training TV Youtube Channelto give you some inside perspective, background, and of course, help you feel the stoke.
Below is the most recent video where I discuss what ninjutusu means to me.
If you enjoy this video, we have over 100 FREE training videos at our Youtube Ninja Training TV channel. This channel and our Ninja Training TV website are for beginners who've never done martial arts and want to get into a fitness routine, develop a meditation practice, or martial arts routine. They are also for the more advanced Bujinkan artist who wants to take their art to the next level.
I hope this first video about ninjutsu inspires you. And, if you want to take your training further, please check out our complete White to Black Belt training series plus a huge weapons training library at https://ninjatrainingtv.com/
