Episode #25: A Life Of Healing

As an infant, Carly Kaatz Hudson suffered a devastating and life-threatening illness. Although she recovered, she was left with neurological dysfunction including left-sided neglect, balance disorders, spasticity, and hearing loss. Rather than accepting the prognosis of living with her disabilities and no hope of recovery, her parents explored alternative treatments, which led Carly on a path of life-long learning and healing.

Now a successful chiropractor with her own alternative medical practice, Dr. Carly helps hundreds of patients recover from injuries, illness, and chronic pain. Hear her story, and how you can access your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Episode #14 Three Ninja Tips For Life

Often times life presents us with unexpected and challenging opportunities. We have two choices: embrace the challenge or walk away. However, if we walk away we might be missing out on an incredible experience that can change the direction of our lives forever. In a good way.

Which is exactly what happened to me when I had the chance to begin training in Ninpo Tai Jutsu. What started as “I’ll take a few classes and quit” eventually resulted in becoming my teacher’s first female black belt.

Honesty, effort, and commitment are the first three traits of the ninja that I learned as a brand new martial arts student. However, these three little words have different practical applications to each and every one of us, both in martial arts training and life in general.

This episode outlines these three tips along with examples on how you can expand on these three ninja traits which you can apply to every single aspect of your life. It also encourages you take the first steps to get you out of your comfort zone, become a leader, a role model, or achieve anything that your heart desires.

I believe there is a black belt in each and every one of us, both literally and figuratively speaking. Download this episode, take those first steps, and unleash your personal power!

Episode 1: Welcome to The FemiNinja Project!

Exactly one year ago I entered a podcasting contest. At the time, I had no idea what a podcast was, or why I would possibly want one. I entered the contest anyway.

Eight anxiety-filled weeks later and overcoming multiple steep learning curves, the contest was over. I didn’t win, but I was invited to join the platform anyway. I am now flying solo, re-branding the show, and creating a community of like-minded women and men who are dedicated to restoring human dignity and helping people of all ages and walks of life unleash their personal power.

In this first episode, you’ll hear about how (and why) I began training in an ancient Japanese martial art called Ninpo Tai Jutsu, the Art of the Ninja. As a matter of fact, you’ll learn more about me than I ever wanted anyone to know. But, it’s time for me to share my story and stop hiding in the shadows.

I also will share many of the ninja secrets, tips, and tricks I learned in my training that you can apply in every single aspect of your life to keep you safe, strong, establish clear boundaries, and be healthy in body, mind, and spirit. And all without spending 14 years in a smelly dojo getting smacked around by a bunch of sweaty men. I took the hits so you wouldn’t have to. You’re welcome.

Never underestimate the strength and power you have deep inside of you. My mission is to help you unleash that power, Discover that it IS possible to look like a woman, act like a lady, move like a ninja and think like a warrior. And remember, men are always welcome on The FemiNinja Project. After all, I would not be here today if it were not for the many magnificent men in my life.

I am grateful to each and every one of them, and I am grateful to you for listening to the podcast, and starting your own journey into the Art of the Ninja. Sayonara!
