Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (ninjutsu) classes

Post by Nak » Tue, 28 Aug 2007 11:42 am

Hello,

If anyone is interested in learning the Japanese martial art of Budo Taijutsiu (better known as "Ninjutsu") I am running a small class in the CBD on Tuesday evenings. The class has been running only a few weeks so the emphasis is on basics, making it a good time to join.

Please email me at singapore@ryuko.co.uk or if you are interested or would like more information.

Helle Des,



The response has been okay. I only opened my dojo two months ago so its still very new. Ten people is the largest class that I have had, while two people is the smallest. Most weeks it is somewhere in between. Obviously, whenever you start something new it takes time to build and it takes time to settle down. Given that it is new - and therefore there is a strong teaching emphasis on the basics - I think it's a good time to start. I am committed to building the club slowly and steadily with an emphasis on quality.

Hi Nak,

Can explain further about your program / curriculum such as:
- which disciplines do you teach?
- what can the beginner level expect to get (more theory / practical, etc...)?

and your background/qualifications in this martial art? to benefit the rest that may have similiar questions.

Thanks. :)

in those japanese movie's action ... ninja is the enemy of samurai warrior.

Hello and thank you for your interest.

Training is entirely practical and not theoretical. There is plenty of theory, of course, but techniques are taught and then it is through the teaching of technqiues that the theory starts to emerge.

Budo Taijutsu is a very complete (vast, in fact) martial art that includes striking, grappling, groundfighting, the use of weapons and principles that enable one to use anything as a weapon. There is not much emphasis on the stealth aspects and other more esoteric parts of the art these days although we will certainly explore it from time to time and over time.

At the moment, because I have a class full of beginners, most of the training involves unarmed basics - from which all aspects of training can be built upon. In terms of which disciplines I teach, the nine schools of the Bujinkan are generally taught as a unified collective whole - although the schools are also examined individually.

As for my background I began training under Shihan (Master) Keith Porter in the UK in 2001 and trained with him until moving to Singapore a few months ago (I am still part of his group) and have also traveled to Japan to train with Hatsumi Sensei, Nagato, Nagouchi and other Japanese masters, which is strongly encouraged in the Bujinkan organisation.

Regards,
Nak
