In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes. The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy. In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.
The Warrior’s Attributes in the West are Power and Strength. Power is your ability to will something when you don’t have strength. Through the use of your will, you can access and utilize all of your resources. Strength is how much physical force you can demonstrate when lifting, running, or performing any exercises without experiencing a loss of orende (chi, ki, Prana, life force energy). It is the endurance factor of expended energy over time. Power and strength together create consistency and continuity in being at cause. The ability to choose the physical activities you want means you have good health.

This year, for the second year, two of our friends from Italy sponsored a Black Lodge (self-defense and physical skills) workshop here in Scottsdale March 22-28.
(Note: It is called “Black Lodge” because, on our medicine wheel, black is the color in the west, which is the place of the physical body, of prowess, strength, and stability.)
The 16 participants, from Italy, Germany, Australia, Canada and the US, spent 7 intensive days with Thunder Strikes and the team, learning and practicing how to handle themselves in various circumstances. Training included fundamental martial arts skills, sexual assault defense, basic firearms training, and awareness development.
Some came because they love this kind of work; others came because they did NOT love it, and wanted to find out why. By the end of the week, though, everyone was participating enthusiastically and planning how they could continue their training once they returned home.
Are you interested in developing your physical skills, your ability to defend yourself and your loved ones, your prowess, your confidence? Contact the Black Lodge team at email@example.com.
