Being an Awesome Ninja

As part of his preparation for Black Belt, we asked Ben Bowers to describe what it means to be an awesome ninja. This is his reply.

An awesome ninja 
responds to conflict with spirit; 
isn't afraid to ask questions; 
knows what he personally is working on, 
     on the mat and in life; 
makes the most of opportunities 
     (being in the right place at the right time);  
brings intellect to the situation so as to respond appropriately, 
     and does not just default to instinct movement and thinking; 
is physically, mentally and spiritually capable of keeping himself and those around him safe from harm.
