Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is based on the teachings of Japanese martial arts schools of both, ninja and samurai. Over the centuries this styles developped and adjusted to the changing circumstances of the respective time period. Thus, Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is not a rigid system, but a living, versatile martial art combining traditon and modern self-defence.
Taijutsu is the foundation of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. This is the art to control your body and unarmed combat. Taijutsu includes among other things punches, kicks, blocks, joint locks, throws and a variety of safe landing techniques. Training the basics intensely is imperative for higher level techniques. Basing on taijutsu advanced students learn to use sword, staff, spear, and other traditional weapons. Furthermore, they learn self-defence against opponents with knives or firearms.
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu trains body control regardless of age or gender. Neither preparatory training nor special physical abilities are required to join our training. A black budo-gi and Japanese socks (tabi) are used as training clothes. Respect for one another strengthens a friendly atmosphere in the dôjô and mutual consideration prevents injuries during joint exercises.
