At Rising Sun Martial Arts Academy, our Ninjutsu training is based on the Bujinkan method taught by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi, the 34th Grandmaster, and director of the International Bujinkan Dojo in Noda City, Japan. The art of Budo Taijutsu has its roots in the traditions of the ancient warrior Martial Arts including those of the Samurai and Ninja.
Taijutsu relies on proper body alignment, positioning, and use of distance, angles, and timing coupled with tactics and strategy, Taijutsu is a purely self-defense combat art with an emphasis on relaxed, natural body movements. Students of all sizes and abilities can benefit.
Training incorporates Samurai, Ninjutsu, and Koryu tactics with modern combative strategies. The use of training weapons will be included, and custom weapons made by Grandmaster Jim Risinger may be purchased.
Students at Rising Sun Martial Arts Academy learn personal security, discipline, and a code of "warrior ethics" based on the ideals of the late Robert L Humphrey. This system of values helps students identify and evaluate “real” threats, thereby assisting in the appropriate action.
The goal of our Bujinkan Buyu or “warrior friends” is to provide an effective, all-encompassing self-defense training experience while keeping each lesson safe and fun. We offer a supportive, non-competitive environment for everyone.
