Taijutsu / Ninjutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art of Ju Jutsu that includes a wide range of movement and weapons practice, Taijutsu means 'body art' and Ninjutsu is the art of invisibility. 

The practice we do is based on learning the relaxed and natural body movements needed for empty hand fighting and armed combat with a wide range of traditional and modern weapons.

Our practice teaches flexibility, agility, breakfalls, empty handed punches, strikes, kicks, and methods of throwing and immobilising an attacker, armed and unarmed.

The art of Taijutsu / Ninjutsu is not a sport and the only competition is with yourself to improve and understand the art.

Our practice is not based on strength or fitness. It emphasises mobility and tactics. Its value lies in self defence and developing an understanding of all forms of combat, traditional and modern.

There are no grading examinations or sport competitions in Taijutsu and rank in the art is awarded for progress in knowledge and movement through regular practice and study.

Several of our members have many years training behind them and have visited Japan and other countries many times to practice with and learn from the senior instructors in our arts.

Beginners and new students are always welcome. Training is always 'one to one' with a partner to help you progress at your own speed and in your own time to keep our practice enjoyable and relaxed.
