This training technique for learning how to micro control your body when you practice your Kaiten (rolling) can help beginner and advanced training situations. Especially for beginners, this can help you slowly learn good body control and awareness. It will help you avoid most of the typical injuries that happen to beginners who are usually hurt from diving into rolls too quickly with almost no actual control. For advanced students you can benefit from this Bujinkan Ninjutsu technique by feeling a new way to roll. But the main benefit for advanced Ninjas is a new way to focusing on what every part of your anatomy is doing during this technique. It will improve awareness of your body that applies to all other maneuvers.You should try this with as many variations in direction and slight body angle changes as possible. Also grab a hanbo, bokken, rokushakubo, plastic pistol or rope to feel how subtle changes occur during the motion because you are holding an object. Try the rolls while "using" those objects as if you have a self-defense intent.
