"Master, tell me how Gyokku Ninjutsu training can be used to 'read' an opponent's moves, and in predicting them in combat. Does the Gyokku Ninja Clan offer special courses in this sort of training?"
Greetings, Deshi. There are three methods to predict an opponent's actions...
The first, simplest and most basic method is by fighting using the reptilian brain, rather than the cerebral cortex. The reptilian brain is the most combat-oriented part of the brain, and thus can react the fastest to subliminal cues, and possibly even low level telepathy. This is achieved through special battle-meditations, and this method is learned when teaching knife-combat in the ninjutsu syllabus.
Though the reptilian brain responds so rapidly, it is actually slow when used against a ninja using telepathy. Ninja train at telepathy in combat almost continuously, dueling against each other using training weaponry all day long.
Gyokku Ninjutsu teaches specific exercises and meditations that allow one to telepathically read what another person is trying to do, allowing the highly trained ninja to counter the opponent’s attacks even before the opponent begins to make them.
But is such predicting of an opponent's moves really possible? Learn more about telepathy in ninjutsu training and combat after the advertisment below...
You have yourself probably used basic telepathy at different points in your life without even realizing it – have you ever walked down a street, lost in your thoughts, and sensed someone looking at you from some window? This is actually unconscious telepathy, used without even thinking. This can be developed into an awesome combat system in which a ninja can even sense an opponent looking at him through binoculars.
The ultimate form of ninjutsu combat is the use of universal harmony, in which a ninja places himself in such harmony with the flows of the universe that the universe itself guides the combat to place the best possible result in the ninja’s hands.
I might just point out though, that a ninja who attains this level rarely has to even engage in combat, as his level of harmony extends to even his putative enemies – allowing him to befriend them, or at least guide their actions into the best possible result without having to engage in combat.
