Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu
At the Glendora Bujinkan Dojo we train in Budo Taijutsu which is referred to by some as Ninjutsu. We train in traditional Japanese martial arts, and provide a standardized curriculum as taught by the International Bujinkan Dojo Association (IBDA) under the guidance of Shihan Richard Van Donk and the patronage of the Bujinkan's founder Soke Masaaki Hatsumi. Our repertoire consists primarily of striking, kicking, throwing and submission holds with a focus on self-defense and not sport applications. Although traditional Jujitsu uses similar skills, Budo Taijutsu techniques are known for their subtlety, effectiveness, and the use of natural movements. We teach strong basics as a foundation coupled with street effective self-defense. A new student can expect to learn useful skills immediately to protect themselves from common assaults. Training time consists of working with different training partners. After learning the principles behind a technique, students will creatively explore variations which allows for more creative expression standing, on the ground or with your back to wall. in addition, weapons training in the use of the sword and staff among many other weapons are incorporated into the training from entry level. Experience the physical benefits of better balance, spatial awareness and coordination! Experience the mental benefits of better self-confidence, spontaneity and resourcefulness!
