Practicing techniques with modern objects should be part of your ninja training strategy. Archery was an important aspect of warfare for centuries. And today’s ninjas practice crossbow modern archery as part of their martial arts training and hunting activity. Throwing knives and hatchets is also not limited to traditional Japanese Samurai and Ninja tools. Taking advantage of your real-life scenarios, such as camping, it a good chance to practice your skills in real environments with the objects that are actually around you. Not just at the dojo.

Crossbow, Hatchet, Sword Training: Extreme Caution!

Hatchet and Ax Tools for Throwing, Hand-held Defense and Camping

The utilitarian hatchet and knife set shown in the video is a good camping set, but they are also potential martial art training weapons. Practice using these the same way you would against the wall at targets in you dojo or at a target range.  Remember to be careful with live blades, so don’t ‘play’ with the tools, watch for other people, don’t leave weapons laying around. (And please don’t throw blades into live trees, so find dead stumps and wood for your target practice.)

Why Bring Your Katana on Your Next Camping Trip?

If you own a practical live sword that is meant to take some training abuse, then bring it to train with in the wild. While hiking, you’ll get the feel of walking around with a sword at the ready. Occasionally stop to suddenly draw the blade, simulating an unexpected attack. At the camping site you can set up branches to practice your drawing, striking angles, distancing, levels and so on.  Do NOT expect to use your sword against real danger in the wild, such as attacks by bear, boar, wolves or irate hunters. This kind of training is only for practice and body conditioning.
