Martial Artist Training Camp Focuses on the Ninja’s Self-Defense System
Sunbury, PA – Warrior Concepts International, a professional self-protection and personal development academy located in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, will be hosting its annual Shinobi no Aki O-matsuri, or “Fall Ninja Training Camp” from November 9th through the 11th, 2012. The camp, lead by senior master instructor Jeffrey M. Miller, a 13th degree black belt in the ancient, Japanese martial art of Bujinkan ninjutsu, or “the art of the ninja,” will be held at Warrior Concepts Black Belt Mastery Academy and is open to any adult, 16 and older, regardless of past experience or affiliation with WCI or the International Bujinkan Dojo. The camp is hosted by Miller, who has been involved in the study and teaching of self-protection and traditional, Japanese martial arts and for over 32 years, as a way to bring together students, practitioners, and enthusiasts for a weekend of intense training and study in the ancient life ways of Japan’s ancient ninja warriors. Through a series of lectures, hands-on training sessions with Miller, and breakout sessions with special guest instructors, participants will be able to gain a better understanding of this often misunderstood martial art and life mastery system.
“Each year we have a unique camp theme,” says Miller. The theme for this year’s Fall Ninja Camp will focus on “Using Your Skills in the Modern World” and will provide students with a very usable way to track their own progress and development through their training. Says Miller, no almost 50, who began training in the martial arts when he was in 7th grade, “we hold these special Ninja Training Camps in the Spring and Fall every year. They are designed to give both regular and long-distance training members an intense, weekend-long experience where they can get away and live, eat, and breathe their martial art.”
“Our camp is actually based on the training camps and seminars conducted when I, and several of the guest instructors, began our own training back in the early eighties,” says Miller. “Many of the newer students have heard the “war stories” about this early training where we got up early, trained hard all day, and went to bed tired and happy, just to get up the next morning to do it all over again.” Miller says that most of the training experienced by today’s practitioners of ninjutsu, or ninpo as it’s known in its higher, philosophical form, has been limited to the dojo or “martial arts training hall” and these seasonal camps allow them to experience, and veterans of the art to re-experience, what it’s like to fully engage in their training.
The Spring and Fall Ninja Training Camps hosted by Warrior Concepts International are a perfect opportunity for teen and adult students to gain additional insights into the study, practice, and history of the art with an authentic, licensed master-teacher of the art. They also provide a good introduction to the art as a whole for the person new to ninjutsu.
