Star Jumps are used by ninja in the course of the BASIC EXERCISES, and are an agility and endurance exercise. They require a reasonable amount of agility to execute, and if done in sufficient numbers, are an excellent endurance exercise as well. Other important agility exercises are NINJA JUMPS AND LEAPING.

USES OF STAR JUMPS
The Star Jump is an endurance and agility exercise. It is also used in mind-body coordination. It can be held as a standard of the very minimum agility required by a ninja in basic training.
HOW TO DO STAR JUMPS
Star Jumps are very simple to execute. Look at the video to learn the exercise, and consult the text below to add to your knowledge.
Simply leap up into the air and spread the hands and feet into a star shape in mid air. It is important that you attain a perfect star shape in mid air, and then bring your hands and feet together to land perfectly and silently.
Land in a crouch. Minimize the noise you make as much as possible, absorbing the force of your landing by going into a crouch and absorbing the force into your thighs. Remember, you are ninja. Stealth and silence are part of the fiber of your being.

Behold the leaves flung from the trees of autumn,
Dancing upon the winds;
The epitome of death and grace...
...The epitome of the ninja,
Who does move as gracefully,
And as often unnoticed,
As an autumn leaf
Blown by the winds.
