Ninpo endurance techniques

Not much detail here I am afraid on how you do it, but it is clear that you have to build up your staying power – in effect your ability to delay orgasm.

Dr Masaaki Hatsumi  - The Way of the Ninja – Secret techniques.

The first step in Ninpo training is that of physical endurance.  The important thing here is to polish your techniques, use your spirit, and endure physical forces until you reach a critical state where everything is on the line.

Dr Masaaki Hatsumi  - The Way of the Ninja – Secret techniques.

Takamatsu Sensei kindly told me the following words, expressing the attitude of a Ninja.
‘What is endurance?  It is the body of a Ninja.  True Ninja are those who cultivate their spirit, train their technique and persevere for time without end’.

Given the difficulty of the process, you need considerable perseverance.  In the following very brief quote you need to be aware of the symbolosm – flower, babboo etc.

Dr Masaaki Hatsumi  - The Way of the Ninja – Secret techniques.

The essence of a flower is nature at work, the essence of bamboo is a natural way of life.  Ninjutsu is a great warrior’s path open only to those whose heart is in the right place.
