Training

You’re Life is on the Line, Practise well.

--Hatsumi Sensei

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is a martial art consisting of striking, locking, throwing and weapons techniques. It is the amalgamation of 9 ryu ha (martial arts schools) headed by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi.

A typical class will begin with a short warm-up, consisting of techniques to avoid injury (ukemi). As recommended by Hatsumi Sensei, a portion of class time is set aside for conditioning as this is an important aspect of martial arts training. The remainder of the class will be focused on combative techniques or drills which develop skills needed in combat. Most often students are not separated by rank. All students are given the option of trying techniques with which they feel comfortable.
