Becoming a Ninja

We know you dream of being a ninja who kicks the bad guy's butt (come on - who doesn't?) so check out what it takes!

Ninjas - Silent But Deadly

Ninjas are silent spies who can never show their faces. So except for a small slit around the eyes, cover up in head-to-toe black or some other dark color. The ninja suit has tons of pockets to store weapons such as shuriken (throwing stars) and nunchuks (two sticks connected by a short chain or rope). Ninjas also wear a special type of boot that looks like mittens. It separates the big toe from the rest to make it easier to grip when climbing trees and scaling walls.

Ninjas - The Art of Stealth

It's easy to get the look, but it takes hard work and discipline to become a true ninja. Can you walk, run and jump without making a sound? Can you enter a room without attracting attention? If you can, then you're already halfway there! Ninjas study a form of martial arts called ninjutsu, which means "the art of stealth." Back in feudal Japan, they learned spy techniques such as gathering information, non-detection (appearing "invisible") and escape. There were 18 ninjutsu skills they had to master before becoming a ninja, like sword fighting, disguise and impersonation, training in water, and archery. Today's study of ninjutsu no longer focuses on espionage techniques but on self-defense, just like tae kwon do and karate. You can learn a modernized and westernized version of ninjutsu called To-Shin Do at the Quest Centers, which are located across the US.

Ninjas - Did U Know?

  • In 14th-century Japan, ninjas were warriors who were hired for covert operations such as assassination and sabotage.
  • Think ninjas can really fly, turn into animals, multiply themselves, or disappear into thin air? They can't - ninjas simply encouraged these rumors to make people believe they were extraordinary figures.
  • Ninjas are extremely popular in books, movies and video games like Mortal Kombat and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3
