Our Dojo is about a journey, about being on a path of fulfillment, about enriching your life and the lives of those around you. Through the philosophy of Dr Masaaki Hatsumi of Japan, the Grandmaster of the 9 traditions of the Bujinkan, we use martial arts to put us on this path.

Empowering Through Martial Arts

Some of our goals are:

• To help people enhance their lives with Martial Arts
• To have a positive impact on the Community by teaching the values of respect, courtesy, and experience the self confidence that comes from knowing how to defend yourself
• To teach how to effectively protect yourself
• To provide the inspiration for personal excellence through example
• To give a sense of power in life by helping to develop physical and mental potential through the martial arts
• To be the best you can be, no matter where you are in life now.

Our regular classes introduce the student to a wide range of material. The practical Bujinkan methods of both unarmed and armed Combat are the corner stone of every class. Our classes are largely concept based. While there are many specific waza, techniques and forms, our focus is for students to develop proper flow, distance, angling, timing and use of balance in real life situations rather than memorizing long lists of techniques or forms.

Our training emphasizes the Bujinkan training method of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi.

The Bujinkan Dojo (Divine Warrior House) transmits the teachings of nine ancient warrior arts. These traditions include Samurai and Ninja. Budo-Taijitsu is purely a self-defense combat art with no competitive aspects.

The International Bujinkan Dojo is based in Noda City, Japan, and is directed by the 34th Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi.
