Training


Classes are lead by Gabriel and are held in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with very little formality. Students are encouraged to ask questions throughout the training session, to enjoy themselves as well as learn.

The Bujinkan arts are a ‘martial art’ and a form of ‘budo’, not a sport, and as such we do not hold or participate in competitions. There is a grading system, with gradings being held annually, however the main emphasis of training is not belts, but developing good sound body movement, effective techniques and a feel for the principles of the Bujinkan schools as taught by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi in Japan.

What is Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu?

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is a martial art that is comprised of nine schools (ryu) of traditional Japanese fighting arts (Budo / Koryu). Each school has its specialties, particular focus and emphasis on body movement and weapons.

Budo Taijutsu emphasises the use of relaxed natural body movement, the use of bodyweight and mechanics over strength as well as focusing on correct distancing, angles and timing to overcome larger and stronger opponents. As such, this makes Budo Taijutsu an ideal martial art and form of self protection for people of any age (over 16+), gender, size and strength.
