NiN Home Training
DIYY...Dojo in Your Yard!
Are you a parent, youth leader, homeschool group, or program leader that wants to add our curriculum to your suite of content that you teach? No problem. We've got you covered! Our memberships below are designed as a DIY training system. When you get access to a membership we give you the training videos, skills manual, and action-packed games to play with the level that you are working on.
Our training begins with our NiN Basics Pathway below. When you purchase a membership, you get access to training videos, written curriculum, Pathway certification, shirts, and patches. We recommend ages 7 and up. After NiN Basics, we recommend Knife Safety, followed by the Chi/Earth Pathway below.
The NiN Basics Pathway
This is where it all begins! Our first Pathway is the NiN Basics Pathway. With this training, we cover 4 easy-to-learn skills that form the foundation for all of our subsequent curricular Pathways. Our curriculum is designed for an adult guardian to easily lead youth through the skills. Do you need a martial arts or nature background? Nope! We've got you covered. We explain each skill through engaging videos and also provide a step by step instructor training manual (The Guardians Guide). Simply show your student(s) the videos, then go practice the skills. We also provide a NiN Rank certificate, links to rank shirts, patches, and more!
Knife Safety Pathway
We do a lot of work with knives in nature, from carving wood for our "Ancient Ninja Tools", to making a fire by friction kit. Most of our Pathways from Chi going forward require the use of a knife.
Chi (Earth) Pathway
This is where things start to get really fun. Chi means "Earth". This is the first of our Elemental Pathways (Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Void). Along this pathway students take a deep dive into hands on woodworking, ninjutsu, awareness, survival skills and much more.
This is the beginning of our Ancient Ninja Tools Pathways! Escrima are approximately 16" long sticks with a long history of self defense. What makes our training unique is that we make all of our Ancient Ninja Tools by gathering wood from nature and carving them ourselves! Learn self defense, woodworking, target throwing, dive rolls and more!
