The first outdoor seminar in this new year is organized by the warriors of Bujinkan Macedonia on 19th January with subject: „Means for survival in nature“. This fourth in a row event, also known as „Winter ninja training“, also represents a test for those who had been several times on the previous seminars. According to the agreement from the last, this year the participants are going to be split in teams led by one veteran and two assistants, that will have the task to build shelter and to prepare the terrain for spending the night and surviving the cold winter night. The assistants are those who participated only once on this seminar. In the end, shidoshi Igor Dovezenski will grade the work done by all the teams, and the leader on the winning team will get a certificate for a successful training for winter survival.
While the teams are working on the terrain, Dovezenski will manage the training for the beginners.
One week before the seminar, the leaders of the teams will get a brochure where all required techniques are contained, and they will have to learn it in order to respond easily on the questions of the instructor.
Required equipment for the leaders: knife, hemp rope long at least three meters, a piece of cotton and flint. If anyone encounters a problem acquiring the equipment, he can freely address the dojo for help.
Warning: the temperatures will probably be below zero. The terrain is open and windy. Encounters with wild life in this period in the year is normal. At least seven hours nonstop exposed to extremely cold weather. Everyone comes on his owm responsibility.
