Welcome to our Thursday sessions
Ninpo Taijutsu classes on a Thursday evening began back in 1985 and are still going strong.
The classes are aimed at all Ninjutsu practitoners. Classes start promptly at 7:30pm and run through until 9pm.
Ninpo Taijutsu is a diverse and friendly Dojo, students are encouraged to talk and share ideas with training partners, we welcome students from all backgrounds, because of the physically taxing nature of Ninpo Taijutsu you must be over 16 years of age to train.
What is Ninpo?
Ninpo has numerous literal translations and the Kanj is use of various spellings lead to further translations meaning many things, including endurance. Essentially Ninpo means mind, concentrating on the brains ability and versatility. The mind is just another part of the body, and we must learn to overcome the tendency to make a distinction between the brain and the other internal organs of the body. The body knows how to move if we let it, and it does not require active mental control to respond properly in a threatening situation. The student of Ninpo Taijutsu works to eliminate mechanically thinking through a response before carrying it out. In real combat no one technique is quintessential.
What is Taihenjutsu
Taihenjutsu includes both defensive and offensive actions. The most important idea concerning the execution of these techniques is that each part of the movement must be smoothly executed and each part connected from one to the other the whole technique should never have a moment of interruption. Some of the movements are primers for higher techniques such as Sabaki Kata (To make swift dodge). Ninpo Taijutsu includes movements and techniques which will make you ‘disappear’, avoid attacks, or run away from your enemy. Some people believe that these actions are cowardly. But it should be realized that these evasive techniques are very necessary techniques for all martial artists that use strategy, in short capturing the essence of Ninpo Taijutsu (Ninjutsu)
This concept is enhanced even more within the syllabus through combining Kamae, Sanchin and Kihon.
"A true warrior does not fight to win but survives to live" through not fighting we demonstrate our true martial arts skill.
This is a private dojo with a limited number of places so book now to reserve your space and avoid disappointment as training is by invite only.
