Ninja Training Group Winter 2019

This weekly indoor "dojo style" self defense/martial arts class  will follow a specific belt/rank curriculum under the licensing of Pathways Dojo. Students will also make ancient charcoal drawing pencils from willow and grapevine, learn kanji/calligraphy and plant/animal/landscape drawings that pertain to the study of ninjutsu. For more details on the intention behind this art element and how it pertains to the study of ninjutusu, see this video by Soke/Grandmaster of Ninjutsu Masaaki Hatsumi. Students would be expected to purchase the training videos that coincide with the rank progression so they can train at home and accelerate their belt progression.
