In this video, I discuss the ninja skin conditioning/training of the hands, feet and toes within ninjutsu martial arts. Remember the ninja was a spy, and body sensitivity was a very important aspect within ninjutsu. The ninja would have to feel around in the darkness to find certain things, do certain things, feel certain things and be aware of certain things. To do this, they would need a high level of sensitivity on the bottoms of their hands, feet and toes.
Do not get skin conditioning mixed up with bone conditioning. Yes, the ninja would train to have effective striking (punching and kicking) within their martial arts training. But this training goes along “impact conditioning” or “bone conditioning” as the practitioner is training to withstand a higher impact and deliver an effective strike with their hands and feet. Impact conditioning is more along the lines of bone and connective tissue training and has nothing to do with the conditioning of the skin for sensitivity.
