As always, there's lots to talk about, so...

Let's get started...

Last Chance Reminder...

Just a final reminder about the upcoming Defensive Combat Handgun Seminar this weekend at WCI Central Academy. This is a level 1 foundations course that will teach you the four "Pillars" or areas needed to be truly proficient when it comes to self-protection with regards to handguns.

The cost is only $79. Remember: These courses are only offered once or twice a year so...

Online Ninja Training

You know, hardly a day goes by without my receiving a phone call or email requesting more information about where someone can go to get reliable information about Ninjutsu training online. Calls and email comes in from, not only the United States but, from as far away as Europe and even India.

Ahh, the global nature of the net...

The problem is that, most of these folks have found a benefit within the pages of our newsletter. They like what they read about warriorship and the benefits of real-world martial arts training. Many want to get the full benefits of what we teach, but...

...I'm in Pennsylvania and they are...

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend schools or training groups to most of these folks for a couple of reasons. The most important of them include...

    1. I don't know where all of the training groups, schools, or teachers are. It would be easier for someone to do a search on the internet or go to a site like for a Bujinkan Ninjutsu-specific site listing, or for a more general martial arts listing.

  • 2. To be honest, I have a certain approach to the study and practice of martial arts and self-defense training - the study of ninjutsu, the art of the Ninja included - which is based on being able to use what you learn in the real world.

    Since I don't know most of the people and, even with regards to Ninjutsu training within the Bujinkan organization, I cannot, in good faith, make a recommendation.

What I can do is to find out what people want and perhaps help them to get it through martial arts and ninjutsu training online. And there are several ways that we here at WCI are doing just that.

In an effort to bring you as much usable material, and in as many formats as possible, we currently offer the following avenues for the serious student or parent to get this knowledge and put it to use in your life.

  • 1. Free Articles
There is a constant array of new articles being added to both the web site, the WCI Blog (, and to article directories like

If fact, if you go to the ezinearticles website, you'll find me listed among thr top expert authors for them. Click on my name and get a complete listing of the 50 articles currently in their directory. (*Check out the newest post at the WCI Blog to see why I'm celebrating!)

  • 2. Ongoing Seminars Ninja Camps and EDR: Non-Martial Arts Defenive Training Courses This includes both in-house events and those hosted by other groups and schools around the world. For information about how to host a seminar with me, go to the contact page on site and send me a request detailing what you have in mind. (Please don't simply ask "for all the information I have...")

  • 3. Books and Videos New resources like "The Karate-Myth" and the "Danger Preventions Tactics" Video are being introduced all the time. Right now, we are working on the release of two more of our Ninja Camp videos on DVD, another Video Seminar outlining the skills and techniques of the Takagi-Yoshin School that focused on grappling and ground-fighting, a Ninja-Mind program for personal insight development, and...

    ...a Black Belt Home Study Course for those who really want to take charge of their training under me.

  • 4. Free Online Self-Defense eCourse This eCourse is ONLY available to subscribers of this newsletter. This is the foundational strategy for taking control of this part of your life. It's delivered via email over 7 days, with each installment focusing on on of the 6 Phases of Effective Self-Defense Strategy. If you haven't enrolled in this powerful eCourse, do it now.

    And, Introducing the Newest Training Opportunity...

    • 6. WCI Webinars with Shidoshi Miller Beginning in April, we will be hosting one or two FREE webinars per month for members-only. That means that you'll be able to train directly with me, no matter where in the world you are!

      Each webinar will be a web-based seminar, ranging anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour in length and cover an important topic relevant to self-protection or personal development training.

      The next free webinars scheduled are:

      "Awareness as the Key to Effective Self-Protection: What to be Aware of"

      April 6th at 8:30pm EST & April 7th at 10pm EST


      "Living and Thinking Like a Warrior: Your Life Purpose" April 13th at 8pm EST & April 14th at 10pm EST

      Each event will be "broadcast" at a different time over two days to make it easier for as many people to participate as possible.

      I will have a registration form on-site by the end of the week so you can register. During registration, you'll be able to list up to three questions that you'd like to have answered about these topics during the actual event. Take advantage of this opportunity to get what you need.

      Again, these events are free to WCI members and Newsletter Subscribers. If you know of someone who wants to participate, or want to post the events in forums that you regularly visit to let others know about them - feel free. The more the merrier. However, ONLY registered subscribers will be given an access password to participate.

      These events will be recorded and re-released as training products in the future. This is your chance to get the information first-hand, and at no cost.

      So, remember to check the site over the next several days. The link will be among the graphic banners along the right border of the page. Just click on it to be taken to the registration page.

      Then, you will receive a confirmation email containing any relevant materials needed and your access password, etc. a few days before the event.

    And, speaking of seminars...

    Can't Travel Here for Training?

    No Problem. Why not host a seminar and bring me to you? Actually, that's how I funded my own training in the early days.

    I sponsored a seminar with my teacher and let others know about it. The participants paid their training fees which covered the cost of the event and...

    • My training was free, and...

    • I made a couple of dollars myself

    You can't beat that!

    "The Greatest Compliment that You Can Give Us is to Refer Warrior Concepts to Others."

    Training Tip for the Solo Practitioner

    In this section, I'll be sharing tips and techniques for those of you who are involved in solo, or self-training, or want to augment the training you are getting elsewhere. There will be ideas, tactics and strategies for everyone. So make sure you open and read your newsletter as soon as you get it.

    These tips will only be added to the site...

    ...AFTER my newsletter readers have had a chance to get them. And many won't be available anywhere else.

    This Issue's Tip...

    The Ninja were best known for their information-gathering skills. In this light, make sure that you are gathering information about what you will most likely have to deal with in an attack situation.

    Your awareness is only as good as your ability to direct it. So...

    ...what do you have to be watching for - what are the most likely dangers - in your part of the world?

    Sign-up for the free webinar titled: "Awareness as the Key to Effective Self-Protection: What to be Aware of"

    April 6th at 8:30pm EST & April 7th at 10pm

    We'll be discussing this and many other important aspects of "knowing what you need" to insure your success in a self-protection situation.

    Pot-Luck Drawing...

    How would you like to get FR.EE equipment, patches, videos, T-shirts... etc. from me?

    I thought you might!

    Due to a recent computer issue that has put me back in work by several days, the details haven't been worked out just yet but, in an upcoming issue, I'll will outline a brand new Potluck Drawing where you'll be able to enter for a chance to win stuff. Who knows what it will be from one drawing to the next?

    Stay tuned for all the details...

    Did You Know...

    The FBI enstimates that 1-in-3 women can expect to be raped at least once in her lifetime And... get that number, they had to lower the age for a "woman" to 9 with no maximum age!

    Where most martial arts academies teach the lessons of one historical "style" or lineage...

    ...the Warrior Concepts Curriculum is made up of the techniques, strategies, and wisdom of at least 9 historical lineages that came to us from Japan with earlier Chinese and Himalyan influences.

    "The more options you have in any given situation...

    ...the greater your chance of success!"

    - Shidoshi Miller

    Points to Ponder...

    1. "Wisdom begins with a question, and ends far beyond the answer."

    2. "A rose, is a rose, is a rose -- but, what is a rose?"

    Until Next time...

    Peace and Happiness,

    Please send in those testimonials and comments. Many of you tell me on a regular basis why you come to my camps, seminars, and classes and how you think I'm doing. NOW it's time to tell everyone else!

    Seriously. It sounds very conceited and "sales-like" when I say how great something is but, when YOU say it, people take notice and listen.

    Why? Because you are a student just like them. You are the ones who return class after class and year after year (many of you coming in for private lessons with me separately from Camps and Seminars). This says something about yourselves but, it also says something about what you believe you're getting from me and these powerful events.

    So, please. Send me something to post so others will know what they're missing.


    Want to send me a question or comment....

    Enter the word "QUESTION" or "COMMENT" in the subject box and email it to me at

    Please keep your submission short and to the point. Any submissions that stray from topic, require too much in the way of editing (please use the spell-check and grammar check functions on your word processor - after all, you paid for them!), or are self-serving and abusive will simply be deleted.

    I'll try to answer your email personally, especially if it's of a personal nature but most submissions will be answered here.
