The School of Smiling Tiger is part of the larger Bujinkan organization under Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi. Our traditional program is dedicated to the proper study and application of Ninpo Budo Taijutsu in every day life. We also feature our modern FightFit program that integrates fitness, health, and self-defense into one complete package.
"You must throw away your bad habits to get good."
