Ninjathon 2021

All members, friends, and supporters of Ninpo US are welcomed and encouraged to participate in this event for the worthy cause of ending human and sexual trafficking.
 
Did you know that over 11,500 individuals are victims every year in the United States? Read more here.
 
All donations will be split between two organizations that work to end human and sexual trafficking.

We want to do our part in the community by hosting a Ninjathon. Below is all the pertinent information you need to get started.
 
What: We are raising funds to contribute to the Covenant House and Zoë Ministries Delaware. Both organizations do work to help those trapped in sexual and human trafficking.
 
When: March 13th at 1pm-2pm. You can do more than one hour if you wish. In the spirit of unity, let’s try to keep the same starting time.
 
Where: Either online via one of the “live” platforms (Facebook, Zoom, et al) or in person at a location of your choice.
 
How: Each participant will choose a “ninja” skill to perform for one, or more, hours. Each dojo leader can organize their local students to participate in whatever format makes sense for them.
 
Funds can be raised either as pledges per rep of the skill, or as a lump sum. DONATE HERE!

 

The task or skill does need to be challenging to make it worthwhile.

Here are a few ideas for Ninjathon challenges to get you started:

 

  • Shuriken throwing: a certain amount of money for any that stick per set
  • So many sword cuts in an hour (One can do up to 500 in an hour)
  • Number of cuts per mat in tameshigiri
  • Number of strikes in an hour, in shadow boxing form, or against a pad
  • Grappling, for one hour straight. This can be tag teamed 🙂
  • A total number of backflips
  • Randori, for one hour straight
  • Total number of pushups in the various fists
Ways to get the community involved:
Ask local businesses to match funds. Ask local businesses to donate. Put up flyers and give out half page flyers (ask us for one!). Create a public Facebook Event. .Campaign on Facebook, Instagram, and etc.
