Hi Cam,

Please could you give a few more details about times/location/cost etc, and what experience and age levels you're expecting to cater for?

Would also be interested to know what physical/fitness requirements there are.

Many thanks!

Steve

Hi,

You don't have to have any previous experience and as long as you're as fit as the average person on the street then that's fine - there's no real guideline. If you have any medical conditions then its probably best to mention them to the instructor.

Anyone over 16 can attend.


Hope that helps.

I've read the guidelines, and i've found this:
Regarding accidents occurring during training (both inside and outside the dojo), one should not cause trouble to the Bujinkan. This is an extremely important point. Those unwilling to take personal responsibility for accidents occurring during Bujinkan training shall not be admitted. Reiterating for clarity, the Bujinkan shall not take responsibility for any accidents happening in the course of training, regardless of the location
Not very appealing... usually when you get a sport licence, there's an insurance included, what about here?

You're free to have your own insurance and they're looking into getting general insurance for the club.

I think the general idea is if you're responsible in your training then there shouldn't be a problem. I doubt the instructors will ask you to do anything dangerous.

As for the legal conditions - its just there as a safety. A bit like 'this product may have traces of nuts'. :)

Sorry Cam, I misunderstood your original post - I thought you were organising these classes.

Just out of interest, have you attended these or similar classes before, or are you a complete beginner?

Hi Steve,

I guess you can say I'm co-organising and I'll be teaching a bit later. But I won't be there for the first session, hence the 'they' reference. Sorry - I'm being a bit 'ninja like' in my posts :) My teacher will be there for the first class so there's no problem of having anyone inexperienced guiding you.

I've studied bujinkan for a while now. Training happens between beginners and the experienced. There is no seperation of 'rank' and there is encouragement to train with different people.

Hope to see you at the class soon :)

I'm curious about what will be taught in the lessons? And how long is the whole 'course'?

Hi,

In the lessons we'll go over locks, strikes, throws, escapes etc. Some days we'll have weapons training - sword, knife etc (all with wooden weapons).

There is no length to the period of training. There's no completion. You get graded over time (they're the only certificates you'll get) and train in the bujinkan for as long as you want.

I think the best thing is to come along and watch (at no charge) and see if it's the thing for you. :)

Cheers,

Cam

So if I'm interested, I just need to email them? Even if I only want to watch and see?

Just so someone will look out for you when you arrive.
