NINPO Budo taijutsu






Bujinkan Ninpo Budo Taijutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art that teaches 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 the student to focus on developing the mind and body through a whole–body movement martial art, not speed and/or muscle training.

The physical level of training in Bujinkan Ninpo Budo Taijutsu includes:

  • Junan Taiso: Body flexibility and conditioning

  • Dakentaijutsu: Strikes, kicks and blocks

  • Jutaijutsu: Grappling, throwing and limb control

  • Taihenjutsu: Rolls, leaps, evasions, and breakfalls

Students are also introduced to the application of traditional weapons in self-defense when they have demonstrated the appropriate level of self–control and coordination:

  • Bojutsu: long, medium and short stick and staff techniques

  • Kenjutsu: Sword techniques

  • Tantojutsu: Knife techniques

  • Kusarijutsu: Short chain techniques

  • Naginatajutsu: Halberd techniques

  • Sojutsu: Spear techniques

  • Hojojutsu: Cord and rope restraining methods


These weapons are replaced with wooden or rope replicas for safety. Students are also taught to understand the principles of self-defense that together forms the very essence of weapon use. This enables Bujinkan Practitioners to instantly adapt any object of any description as an aid in self-protection.
