Just been having a think about who in your oppinions would you class as the greatest survivors of all time?
By greatest survivors, I mean people who have the greatest ability, skill, training or mindset that would gurantee, should the SHTF, they would be the
ones left standing.
In my oppinion some of the greatest survivors and indeed warriors who have ever lived was the Ninja.
I know that primarily they were trained in martial arts & fighting techniques but they were also trained in strategy, warfare tactics, psychology and
first aid coupled this with the fact that they were also amazing athletes with great physical fitness and strength.
Not only were they supremely physically conditioned but they also were taught to disengage emotion when thinking about a situation to allow clear,
logical thinking to occur.
They were also taught about herbal medicine and how to live off the land, they were experts at adapting to and surviving a wide range of situations.
Their ingenuity also I feel would have helped them, they constructed a variety of different weapons and tools to help them carry out their missions.
This skill would be useful in a survival scenario.
Personally, I think the Ninja were one of, if not , the greatest survivors this planet has ever seen!
What do you guys think?
