TMNT and Ninjas

I was totally a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan as a kid… I guess I’m dating myself by saying that but…nevermind!

I had this unusual fetish with black panthers back then (and I’m not saying I still don’t!) I always wanted to be super stealth, super sleek, and veiled in black – What better embodiment than the black jaguar and black leopard?!  My vampiness, no doubt, has a part to play in that too but…the prospect of silently maneuvering behind the scenes, evading the senses, reveling in the magic of trickery was ever on my radar!

I never knew I would find a Ninjutsu school in my adulthood, but I’m certainly thankful I have.  I LOVE Martial Arts – ALL of them -for many different reasons.  But I am blessed to finally say I can wear a black gi to practice, and that I’m learning the ways of the seemingly preternatural Ninjas of old. Honestly, I feel cool just being there!  (That’s me in the black above.) 😉
