Enter the mind of one of ninjutsu's most renowned teachers and start your journey towards martial arts mastery!

Masters in the Japanese martial art of Ninjutsu are legendary for their ability to access seemingly endless amounts of pure strength and mental endurance to achieve their goals. The Ninja Mind documents Ninjutsu black belt Kevin Casey's journey toward mastery under the tutelage of Stephen K. Hayes, Black Belt Hall of Fame member and the "Father of American Ninjutsu." Casey vividly describes his successes and setbacks studying with his famous teacher—as well as his growing interest in the Ninja art of kuji-no-ho, the most esoteric of traditional Ninja practices.

Combined with determination and discipline, Casey's techniques and exercises will guide you to acquire and cultivate a true ninja's power. Exercises such as 'The Unbendable Arm' and 'Manifesting Power' will develop your physical strength, while 'Walking as the Hero' will hone the mindset necessary to overcome any challenge, no matter how suddenly it arises.

Chapters in this ninjutsu guide include:
  • The Nine Powers
  • The Secrets Told
  • Physical Strength
  • Mental Strength
  • Spirit Strength
  • Negative Emotions
