Martial arts training is a life long exercise that tests a person's heart and soul on every level. Only the most dedicated students start to see things clearly many years after they start. The training is very physically demanding and can be quite difficult, and is not something a student or a prospective student should enter into lightly. Know that the mind of a student does not pursue things such as fame, social groups, money, or other distractions. Train hard and in the right way and the treasures that are hidden within the arts may reveal themselves to you over time.
Depending on where you are in the process, training will be different. The focus on development has many aspects and it takes a lifetime of work and dedication; many mountains to climb, many struggles to endure. Endurance is the way of Ninpo.
