The basic ability, such as a leg power or the jump power, is indispensable for even modern people, but because of the professionality, ninjas needed to train their basic ability unusually.
For this reason, ninjas trained themselves by a very unique method. In this page, we would introduce you about the training method of the ninjas.

Running power

The running power was necessary to escape as soon as possible when I was chased by an enemy. The ninja performed unique ascetic practices to train running power in the times when a measurement of the time was difficult.
The ninjas trained there running power by putting a cloth or a chest, and tried hung down it a long time did not fall into the ground by running, to train running power.
Because the ninja could know how fast he is running, it may be said that it is effective.

The jump power was a very important ability for the ninja.

Then, it has need to strengthen the eyesight in the place that, because of the profession, is dark.

Furthermore, I dropped several needles at the same time and had the technique such as guessing the number of the needle right stolen.
