In one of the books, I just drew him running in that pose and the image just stuck. I didn't want him to have the exact same running style as every other ninja, so I just brought his arms out a bit. He still leans forward at a seemingly impossible angle. Bah. It is the way of the fictional ninja. The only difference is that he's not telegraphing any specific move with his arms. It's like he's just daring you to try and hit him.
