We are currently in Dayton, OH for the 30th Annual Ninja Festival. I'm so looking forward to a weekend of great training, connecting with friends, and sharing the secrets of our 900-year old lineage.This year's theme s the Life-Giving Sword which epitomizes the ninja approach to self defense. It isn't about violence or even defending yourself. It is about what you create and cause to thrive in the world. If you can't be here this year, start saving for next year. I'll be using our Facebook page to post great quotes, training anecdotes, and cool pics. I hope you'll follow me there.
