The Bujinkan system is made up of
9 schools handed down to Dr Masaaki Hatsumi by his teacher Toshitsugu
Takamatsu, who was considered by many to be the ‘last true ninja.’
Although commonly known as
ninjutsu, the Bujinkan covers a diverse range of skills, disciplines
and strategies from both the samurai and ninja traditions. Soke chose
the name Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu to distinguish what we do from populist
ideas of ninja and the ninja boom in martial arts.
Regular classes for Bujinkan
Perth are held at the Kenwick Community Centre, our dojo has approx
150 sqm of 2" thick traditional tatami mats. We also train outside
when the weather permits.
At Bujinkan Perth Dojo we cover all
aspects of armed and unarmed combat, grappling and ground attacks,
indoor and outdoor envirornments, one on one, group defences and so
on. We train to understand when it is important to stand our ground,
when to fight or when to walk away. Regular classes cover the following
Junan Taiso - conditioning, flexibility,
Ukemi - moving safely in any direction
Taijutsu - energy efficient movement
Dakentaijutsu - effective striking
Jutaijutsu - grappling, restraints,
Buki - traditional and modern weaponry.
There are no tournaments or competitions
- we use realistic scenario-based training to ensure our skills are
realistic and effective. We
also hold regular training seminars for members to explore aspects
of training in more depth with higher level instructors and Shihan.
