Bujinkan Ninjutsu

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is based upon the teachings of ninjas and samurais. Over centuries it has been evolved and adapted to current need and is a dynamic, easily adjustable and combative martial art which combines tradition with modern self-defence.

The basis of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is Taijutsu, which literally means the art of body and it consists of techniques for unarmed combat. In principle, the training in Bujinkan includes:

fists and kicks (daken taijutsu),

locks and throws (ju taijutsu),

movement in space and breakfalls (taihenjutsu),

combat against numerous opponents, ground combat

more advanced tecniques such as bone-attacks (koppojutsu), nerve point attacks (koshijutsu), escape techniques (hajutsu), etc.

Advanced students are trained in defending against and using knives, sticks, swords, ropes, chains and other traditional or modern weapons.

Basic training in Taijutsu includes basic techniques (kihon - jutai) and forms (kata), but later on we give special emphasis on the development of movement, of free variations of techniques (henka) and of application of the above (radori-kumite).

Ninjutsu training does not involve tournaments. Besides, historically one of the goals for the art has been survival.
