THE WIND NINJA

Wind is the fourth level of the Kurai Kotori Ninja’s elemental training. It is here the Wind Ninja learns to tap into their ability stay just beyond reach until an opening presents itself. Although the concept of avoiding an opponents attacks appears fundamental, if one is excessive when dodging, they will need to cover too much distance when re-entering to counter-attack. This is unacceptable. Wind should bend around the opponents aggression, not run from it.
