The Bujinkan Dojo consists of nine traditional schools, or Ryuha, that are under the guidance and instruction of Soke Masaaki Hatsumi who is the Gradmaster of Bujinkan.
In the Bujinkan we study very effective techniques that have evolved over a 1000-year period of warfare and peace in Japan. Some of the unarmed techniques practiced involve punches, kicks, throws, grabs, joint locks, pressure point control, grappling and many more. Some of the weapons we practice are swords, spears and halberds, sticks and staffs, knives, chains, truncheons, ropes and Ninga weapons such as shuriken (throwing stars) and shuki (hand claws).
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu uses natural movement to overcome speed and power. Movement is refined for grace and naturalness while “true strength” is developed from subtly of movement, evasiveness, adjustment of position and the use of the body as a whole. Jissen Gata, real fighting style, is the driving force behind all techniques and always stressed during training.
The Self-Defence training of the Bujinkan Dojo is suitable for all people regardless of gender, size, shape or level of fitness. Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is very unique amongst most Martial Arts practiced today in that it has retained its warrior heritage while still being effective in these modern times.
