THE CELESTIAL NINJA

Celestial is the final level of the Kurai Kotori Ninja’s elemental path. The Ninja has completed training in the Earth, Water, Fire, and Wind levels and has developed a solid understanding of their gifts and limitations with each element. It is now time to delve deep within, striving to balance these furies so they are working as a unified force that can emerge instinctively and respond to conflict as it occurs.  At this point the Ninja must embark on a journey of "Muto," or "No Sword," which means the Ninja will fight unarmed against an armed assailant.
