With the new school year, parents are looking for after-school extra curricular opportunities for their children/youth. Our Kids and Teens classes are truly beneficial as they develop confidence, gain experience in leadership, and have fun while they learn self-defense and train in one of Japan's oldest martial arts systems. Please contact the dojo ahead of time using our contact form to set up a time to try out a class.
This is a whole martial arts system, one that never splintered up it's subdisciplines (karate, judo, jujutsu [jiujitsu], kendo, kenjutsu, and more). Most of the old warrior systems of martial arts splintered their subdisciplines when recreational sports became more popular, so that their system could be used in sports competition. The schools of the Bujinkan did not do this, they kept their systems complete. So we train striking with throwing with grappling with weapons simultaneously. It is a lot of fun, we get to participate in a living part of history, and it is effective self-defense.
Shane Sensei is a licensed Shidoshi in the Bujinkan and member of the Shidoshi-Kai. He has trained in the Bujinkan since 1998 and regularly travels to Japan for training.
