Bujinkan Dojo Title

 

 

We do not train for contests or competitions. Our training is for the express purposes of personal development and protecting life.  We offer self-paced instruction for all skill levels. There are no beginner or black belt-only classes. Everyone trains together regardless of rank or skill level. This gives new students the benefit of working with more experienced practitioners, provides the more experienced students a chance to refine their basics and maintain sound fundamentals through helping others, and allows everyone exposure to both basic and advanced concepts and principles.

 

 

This methodology is preferable to segmented classes and, as a whole; our students generally grasp core concepts more effectively. We reinforce instruction by examining both traditional and modern self- and others-protection applications. Though our lineage dates back over a very long time, the principles passed down to us through our teachers are as applicable today as they were so long ago.

 

 

No contracts are required. Instead, modest monthly dues allow adults to attend as many classes per month as they wish.  As a new student, you are not required to have a uniform or other training equipment, but if you wish to continue training we do have some resources available to acquire training uniforms (keikogi) and practice tools (bogu) at a reasonable price.

 

Furthermore, we do follow a kyu/dan ranking system as is recognized at the Bujinkan Honbu Dojo in Japan.  All students will be expected to obtain a yearly membership card with the Bujinkan Honbu Dojo:

 

"This card not only preserves the honor of the Bujinkan members, it indicates you are part of a larger whole--one whose members come together with warrior hearts to better themselves through training and friendship. It evinces the glory of warrior virtue, and embodies both loyalty and brotherly love."
