Ninja master and survival expert Hakim Isler presents modern day survival strategies based on the techniques of Japan's ancient ninja. If you find yourself in an unexpected extreme situation—while wilderness camping, hiking or adventuring off the beaten path—a fundamental understanding of your surroundings can make the difference between life and death. By harnessing the powers of nature, the ninja built a legendary reputation as survivalists with an ability to thrive in even the most inhospitable situations. By studying their ancient philosophy and techniques, alongside modern science, you can prepare yourself to survive in any outdoor environment. The basis for ninja survival skills comes from the Buddhist philosophy of the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and the Void. By understanding how the elements relate to the human body, the formula for survival becomes clear. Earth – protection from the harsh elements using trees, leaves, dirt, grass, and vines to build shelter Water – effectively cool off when overheated and avoid dehydration Fire – properly use fire to warm the body and to purify water by boiling it Wind – harness the power of wind to ventilate shelters, smoke meat and help build fires Void – apply knowledge and creativity while developing a survival plan Isler has over 20 years of experience as a martial artist, Special Forces soldier and security expert. With over 135 full-colour photos and 60 illustrations detailing these time-tested methods, this book offers insights that are extremely practical. The foreword by Ninjutsu master Stephen K. Hayes masterfully connects the past to the present by providing unique and valuable insights for surviving mentally in the outdoors.
