When you train at New England Ninjutsu in Wallingford, CT, you’ll learn the martial arts system of Budo Taijutsu.
New England Ninjutsu is a member of the Bujinkan Dojo. We offer instruction in the traditional martial arts of the Bujinkan Dojo as taught in Japan by the headmaster (Soke), Masaaki Hatsumi.
The training is non–competitive, allowing the student to focus on developing the mind and body through a whole–body movement martial art.
A Complete Martial Art
Budo Taijutsu includes the study of both unarmed and armed combative techniques, strategy, philosophy, and history. In most instances, the area of study is quite comprehensive. The idea is to become adept at many things, rather than specializing in only one.
Budo Taijutsu does not refer to a specific style, but more to a group of arts, each with a different point of view expressed by the different school. The physical dynamics from one school to another varies - one may focus on redirection and avoidance while another may charge in and overwhelm, etc.
Budo Taijutsu consists of the following nine Japanese martial arts schools (ryuha) under one discipline.
1) Togakure Ryu Ninpo
2) Koto Ryu Koppojutsu
3) Gyokko Ryu Koshijutsu
4) Kukishinden Happo Biken
5)Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu
6) Kumogakure Ryu Ninpo Happo Biken
7) Gyokushin Ryu Ninpo Happo Biken
8) Shinden Fudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu
9) Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu
Our School's Approach
We begin our students with a focus on Practical Self-Defense, drawn from and conveying the fundamentals of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, gradually working into the standard BUJINKAN curriculum.
Over time our students are exposed to a wide variety of skill sets, including weapon and empty-hand techniques, ranging from the traditional to the modern, while always retaining a critical eye for practical self-defense considerations and applications.
Our classes are run along the lines of study groups and each person is responsible for their own progress as well as helping their fellow students.
What You'll Learn
The physical level of our training includes:
■ body flexibility and conditioning (Junan Taiso)
■ strikes, kicks and blocks (Dakentaijutsu)
■ grappling, throwing and limb control (Jutaijutsu)
■ rolls, leaps and evasions (Taihenjutsu)
When students have demonstrated the appropriate level of self–control and coordination, they will be introduced to the application of traditional weapons in self-defense.
