Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. Before you look any further, take note that what we teach is not a sport. Our approach is mind and body, so our pysical training is more for endurance and mental perseverance not just fitness. After all, not all people are the same, in mental capacity, size or shape, so how can we all reach the same pysical and mental peak? Might we suggest you also visit the old site at britishbujinkan.co.uk The site was established many years ago and we felt it was time for an update.
This is a private dojo with a limited number of places so please contact the Instructor before attending a session.
How does Ninpo Tai-Jutsu differ from other martial arts?
We fight for life not sport= span>
Ninpo Taijutsu techniques are based on an ancient
well tested system of warrior disciplines from both Ninja and Samurai, handed
down by nine historical Japanese family lineages. The techniques have been
developed over centuries of conflict where the defender had to persevere and
win against stronger, more numerous, and better equipped adversaries. These
still transmitted in the same way as they were in the mid 1600s. As a result
the training encourages a mindset of survival rather than victory, and places
higher store on strategic thinking, They do not rely on strength, speed, or
size but rather our art utilizes natural, relaxed, efficient body movements,
distancing, timing, and absolute practicality to defeat the adversary as a
result, This different mindset and training method is found in authentic
Koryu, or old martial arts.
This mindset allows you, the individual, to act in a free and spontaneous manner while remaining clear. This idea of "formless spontaneity" is something that dwells within all of us, so can be rediscovered for each one of us through dedicated practice. The art of Ninpo Taijutsu is not only based upon learning a set of motions or techniques, it is awareness of countless principles that allow a "technique" to happen naturally.
Ninpo Taijutsu has not been degraded or watered down for sports or personal refinement, nor are there any artificial rules, but are true koryu "old schools" that retain their true and effective martial capabilities. Improving your mind and body through both mental and physical challenges is the only way to effectively improve your life. With this in mind the training is effective and full contact is expected or put more clearly "To understand any technique fully you must first have felt it being done to you and practiced it, in full, on some one else"

Means 'Nin' used in the words 'Ninja', 'Ninjutsu' and 'Ninpo', consists of 2 radicals or parts. The upper radical called 'Yaiba' means the cutting edge of a blade. The lower radical is read as 'Kokoro' or 'Shin' meaning heart. 'Nin' is also used to write 'Nintai' which means perseverance or patience, implying the important thing for a Ninja is to be patient under impossible circumstances and persevere when he cannot find a way to succeed on a mission. This form of thinking, the spirit of perseverance, is called 'Ninja Seishin'. In Ninpo the practitioner learns patience and perseverance, which we view as its fundamental characteristics and with that one is able to deal with a whole variety of situations. In addition, practicing Ninpo helps to increase one's mental concentration dramatically, leading to more efficient thought processing.
Means ("Body Arts") is a term for Japanese martial arts techniques that rely solely on body dynamics as opposed to weapons and other devices. 'A truly dynamic, effective and real-life system of self defense and unarmed combat'.
Ninpo Taijutsu takes patience and perseverance... which just happens to be the meaning of the Japanese character "Nin"... as in Ninja and Ninjutsu.
