Hello, and welcome to The FemiNinja Project! I am your host, Cheryl Ilov, a second degree black belt in Ninpo Tai Jutsu, the Art of the Ninja. I began my training at the tender young age of 47, and ten years later became my teacher's first female black belt. In 20 years of teaching, he never had a woman achieve such a high rank. And, I am the last person on earth anyone would expect to study a martial art.
During my 14 years of training and climbing the ranks, I realized that there is a black belt in each and everyone of us, just waiting to be discovered. However, not everyone wants to spend 14 years in a smelly martial arts school getting smacked around .
So, I share many Ninja secrets, tips and tricks, as well as the philosophy of the Ninja including life-long learning, health, and mindset, to help women and men restore their human dignity and unleash their personal power. Yes, I said men. Because everyone is welcome on The FemiNinja Project!
