Bujinkan Budo Taijustsu – Ninjutsu
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art that teaches you effective ways of self-protection using timing, distancing, and angling. Multiple attacks, weaponry, striking, grappling, choking, leaping, rolling, and throws are all disciplines incorporated into the training of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. The training is non–competitive, allowing you to focus on developing the mind and body through a whole–body movement martial art, not speed and/or muscle training.
The Bujinkan is the platform Masaaki Hatsumi, Soke, created the after his teacher, the late Takamatsu Sensei, died in 1972. Takamatsu Sensei was the Soke of nine ryu, or lineages, of which he taught to Hatsumi Sensei over the course of 15 years.
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is the culmination of these nine ryu that Hatsumi Sensei uses as the basis for the Bujinkan. Three of the nine ryu are of ninjutsu decent (Togakure Ryu, Kumogakure Ryu & Gyokushin Ryu), making the history of the Bujinkan slightly more difficult to understand without proper historical interpretation by an authentic teacher.
The physical level of training in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu includes:
Junan Taiso – Body flexibility and conditioning
Dakentaijutsu – Strikes, kicks and blocks
Jutaijutsu – Grappling, throwing and limb control
Taihenjutsu – Rolls, leaps and evasions
