Kurzbeschreibung

20. Dezember 2013
Masters in the Japanese martial art of Ninjutsu are legendary for their ability to access seemingly endless amounts of pure strength and mental endurance to achieve their goals. The Ninja Mind documents Ninjutsu black belt Kevin Casey's journey toward mastery under the tutelage of Stephen K. Hayes, Black Belt Hall of Fame member and the "Father of American Ninjutsu." Casey vividly describes his successes and setbacks studying with his famous teacher—as well as his growing interest in the Ninja art of kuji-no-ho, the most esoteric of traditional Ninja practices.

Combined with determination and discipline, Casey's techniques and exercises will guide you to acquire and cultivate a true ninja's power. Exercises such as 'The Unbendable Arm' and 'Manifesting Power' will develop your physical strength, while 'Walking as the Hero' will hone the mindset necessary to overcome any challenge, no matter how suddenly it arises.

Chapters include:
  • The Nine Powers
  • The Secrets Told
  • Physical Strength
  • Mental Strength
  • Spirit Strength
  • Negative Emotions

Pressestimmen

"The journey towards grasping the needed lessons will not be easy; it will not be comfortable or quick … but it is worth it. We'd like to show you how." — From the foreword by Stephen K. Hayes

"The subtitle of this new book [ … ] lets you know what Kevin Keitoshi Casey set out to do when he wrote it. The author focuses on less-obvious facets of the art such as physical strength, mental strength, spirit strength and negative emotions." — Black Belt Magazine

"Martial arts centered books tend to slant in one of two directions: either the spiritual side of things (which makes many of them read like self-help books), or the physical side (which turns them into a how-to manual for instructional use). Casey manages to combine both sides in The Ninja Mind, along with a generous through line of personal narrative." —Jenn Zuko Boughn, author of Stage Combat; blogger at Bonzuko (Daily-Cross Swords)

"…most with an open mind will find Casey's story and narrative provocative. Casey's book is more than conjecture, and, in many ways speaks to the heart of the origin of the ninja myths."—Tallahassee Writers Association

2.0 von 5 Sternen Misleading Title 10. Dezember 2013
Von DLB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was not at all what I expected. I wanted a book on the mental aspect of ninjutsu, a book that described the mental exercises of historical ninjutsu and how we can learn and apply these principles in modern training. What I got instead was the spiritual autobiography of Kevin Casey. The subtitle of the book is “Harnessing the Mental Strength and Physical Abilities of the Ninjutsu Masters.” The book, however, makes virtually no reference to any ninjutsu master other than Stephen Hayes. After reading the book, the reader is left with the strong impression that Stephen Hayes’ and Kevin Casey’s spirituality is much more closely connected with Tibetan Buddhism than with ancient ninjutsu.
This book has little to do with historical ninjutsu or with ninjutsu in general as a martial art. It is, rather, the spiritual autobiography of Kevin Casey as told through various stories and events in his life. It is filled with adoration for Casey’s mentor, Stephen Hayes. Casey writes with an air of arrogance that is apparent in all his stories. Even the self-deprecating moments in the book have an air of false humility. In one of his stories, Casey goes into great detail to tell the story of how he was in charge of security during a speaking engagement for the 17th Karmapa of Tibetan Buddhism. The reader is left to wonder what this lengthy story has to do with the subject matter of the book. Granted, it is a very important event Casey’s life and he used the occasion of this book to tell it, but it has nothing to do with harnessing anything from ninjutsu masters. Within that story, he told of how his wife argued with some vegetarians over a tray of meat. It was certainly wise of Casey to brag on his wife in his book, but again, the story has nothing to do with the supposed subject matter.
Casey’s stories take some rather bizarre turns at times. Casey focuses his mental energies on and draws strength from an Oriental god known as Fudo Myo’o who has blue skin and wields a flaming sword. Casey apparently believes in the literal existence of this deity who has manifested himself in physical form to both Casey and his wife. Fudo Myo’o appeared out of nowhere to change his wife’s flat tire. Fudo Myo’o also appeared in physical form to go on a late night wilderness run with Casey. I was struck with the impression that belief in the literal existence of Fudo Myo’o is as odd as believing in the literal existence of Thor.
Even if one can look past the somewhat self-serving purpose of this book and its bizarre spirituality, the book still suffers from lack of editing and leaves many unanswered questions: If there is a Kuji One, is there also a Kuji Two, Three, Four, etc.? The chapter titled “The Nine Powers” does not list nine powers. Casey insists that the Kuji powers can be learned only from a qualified teacher; yet, he gives no guidance on how to find or screen these qualified teachers. Where are they found? What are their characteristics and qualifications? How can one discern a true teacher from a charlatan? He lists a mantra, the pronunciation of which is apparently important. He tells us how the vowels are pronounced but does not say which syllable is stressed. If the proper syllable isn’t stressed, the pronunciation of the word remains unknown. Who is Hanzo?
To be fair, the book does contain a number of mental exercises that are probably helpful in meditation. I have no doubt that Casey is a fine man and meant well; I just think his book title is misleading.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a book on the mental disciplines of ninjutsu, you will be sorely disappointed in this book. If you are interested in reading the spiritual autobiography of Kevin Casey, or if you are interested in learning more about the spirituality of Stephen Hayes, this book will suit you just fine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical access to ancient magic? Yes, please! 6. November 2013
Von Angela R. Hartlove - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Before I read The Ninja Mind, I did not have much background in, or knowledge of, Kuji One. I was dimly aware of the notion that ninja could magically harness incredible mental and physical strength, but knew nothing more. Reading this book was a brilliant introduction to the Kuji, since it is complete with practical exercises I can actually do, illustrated with real-life examples of manifesting power to overcome obstacles and difficulties, and includes guidance for exploring this subject matter in greater depth.

Reading this book was inspiring and encouraging. Kevin Keitoshi Casey writes clearly and beautifully; I was entertained as I was informed, encouraged as I was awed, and now I'm eager for him to write more books introducing more kuji! If you want to learn how to be more powerful, both mentally, physically, and spiritually (who doesn't?), then The Ninja Mind is for you, too!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Ninja Mind: Harnessing the Mental Strength and Physical Abilities of the Ninjutsu Masters 6. November 2013
Von Juan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm amazed how this book was able to capture so many teachings in detail from Stephen K. Hayes. With many of the stories and exercises, I felt like I was present for those powerful experiences. When it comes to the Ninja Mind and the Kuji One powers, Mr. Casey makes it easy to understand what can be a complex perspective to attain. Using storytelling as a way to engage the reader he shares his experiences. Some of the best parts of the book are the exercises that he walks you through--in true fashion of experiential adventure, he lights the path for your own experience.

I recommend this book to anyone searching to understanding how to be more authentic in the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Activating our inner compass 6. November 2013
Von Leah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The Ninja Mind by Kevin Keitoshi Casey should be renamed The Every Person's Handbook for learning how to activate and develop our inner compass. It gives excellent instructions through both visuals and terrific storytelling. It is so darn practical yet so darn inspiring for tapping into our inner power and discovering huge results. It is a fun read. The author's storytelling of his own journey has ignited my enthusiasm for shaping my journey.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Magic, no belief required 19. November 2013
Von Hal Clark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Unique among works on this subject, this book peels away the mystical trappings of the Kuji to illustrate the down-to-earth truths of how powerful a human being can really be, and why those mystical trappings are actually the key to accessing those truths. "Harnessing" is the perfect word for the title. Although these powers are a natural part of us, sometimes we need symbols to get around our perception of what is possible, to harness what is actually possible.

Through accounts of his own experiences, Kevin Casey illustrates the relationship between the symbols and the realities. For those wanting to get on the path of learning the Kuji, this is an excellent starting point, but there are enough insights and tools in here for anyone's path.
