Ninja Stars or Throwing Knives

We know you lead a busy life, full of activities, many of which are required of you. Tell us about something you do simply for the pleasure of it.

Throwing knives are for hot summer days and for dull Sunday afternoons – for when even the blood in my head has seemingly gone stagnant. This spin on the martial arts pulls me from these doldrums, forcing my mind into discipline. I must estimate the distance from my target, the total number of rotations, and the ideal impact location. Every detail must be finessed.

However, ninja stars are for stressful days, when the world has clouded my mind with thoughts; all I need to do is imprecisely hurl a disk at 400 revolutions per minute into a board. Together, these weapons keep my mind sharp.
