Incredible and beautiful.
Predecesor of Ninjutsu -
"Shugyo is a Way of training and conducting yourself.
The Japanese term “shugyo” is generally translated as “austere training,” and seems to originate with the training of the Samurai during the “Pax Tokugawa,” an unprecedented period of internal peace from the mid-1600’s through the mid-1800’s. The purpose of shugyo is to “forge the spirit,” remaking a practitioner’s character through hard physical and mental training. It is a way to go beyond the norm and discover new limits in the absence of real combat, thus keeping practitioners ultimately prepared."
