EPISODE #110: FEMALES IN NINJA COMMUNITY RESPONSE

Cara and Mary were honored to be presenters at the NNL World Championships to discuss a topic nearly two years in the making. Over the course of the competition, they presented the seminar 6 times. About 2 years ago, Cara and Mary started diving into the topic and concept of males and females in Ninja. Why do we compete on one course? Could we split into two courses? What are the implications on having two courses for men and women? Cara and Mary interviewed with professionals from both outside and inside of ninja and presented their findings during the seminars. In this episode, we’re going to talk about the responses and feedback we got from presenting this seminar.

cara poalillo Nov 27, 2020

Want to fight FOMO in your life?  Does looking at other people's lives on social media make you feel bad about your own life?
 
Sometimes we get stuck letting the negative affects of comparison make us feel less-than. The result is that being truly thankful is hard, because we don't actually recognize or appreciate the good things we do have in life.  On today's episode Cara teaches strategies for breaking this negative cycle and using comparison to build confidence instead of self-negativity.

EPISODE #51: ORIGIN STORY

Back in 2017, four friends decided they wanted to take the ninja womens’ community to a whole new level. The ninja warrior world has had a strong womens’ community since its inception, but we wanted more.  Danielle Bonomo, Jane Greenebaum, Chelsea Cronin, and Cara Poalillo took that community one step further by deciding to start inspire ninja girls and women everywhere to call themselves ninjababes. This movement started out of friendship, encouragement, and determination. Now it has grown to a worldwide movement of female ninja athletes. 

Check out the video from the story we share about being at our first competition at Brooklyn Zoo and Cara defeating the new and intimidating Flying Bar
