I HAVE NO MARTIAL ARTS EXPERIENCE, CAN I STILL COME ALONG?
All classes are mixed ability, and whether you have no martial arts experience or hold ranks in other martial arts is absolutely fine.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Just some loose clothing, e.g. track suit bottoms / t-shirt is fine. If you wish to continue then I can arrange clothing and equipment through my suppliers, or you can source your own.
IS THIS SUITABLE FOR SELF DEFENSE?
Bujinkan covers a wide range of fighting styles, armed and unarmed. It is well placed as an effective method of self defense.
ARE THERE COMPETITIONS?
Bujinkan is a traditional martial art. In order to make it a competitive sport would dilute the teachings to focus on winning in a competition. As such, there are no competitions.
CAN I TURN UP AND WATCH?
However, as the first class is free, I'd recommend coming along a joining in.
DO YOU TEACH WEAPONS? WHICH ONES?
There are a number of different weapons that we train, the main ones include the Bokken/Katana, 6ft Bo, 3ft Hanbo and tanto / dagger. There are many more!
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BUJINKAN AND NINJUTSU?
Bujinkan is the name of the collection of Martial Arts passed down to Soke Masaaki Hatsumi. These are a combination of Samurai and Ninja Arts.
Sometimes, for brevity the it is referrd to as Ninjutsu - i.e. the Martial Art of the Ninja, but strictly speaking Bujinkan encompasses a lot more.
