Why choose Ninjutsu over other arts?

When you join us you don't just join a Martial Arts group . . . you actually join a Ninja Clan (family) !
Ninjutsu is perfect for both Boys and Girls as the techniques you learn don't require a lot of physical strength or strange unnatural postures or movements and we are not sports orientated or competitive.

Each belt level builds on all the previous levels, the basics (our foundation) is drilled and practiced so that the intermediate and advanced techniques become simply a natural extension of your own natural ability to move.

Students learn the cultural aspects of being a ‘warrior’ and a ‘clan’ (family) member, learning how rewarding responsibility can be, how self discipline and focus will help them achieve what they really desire in life and how being part of the community can have great benefits for them.

Training in our martial art is very different from training in most modern competitive, aggression based sport
martial arts around today.

We encourage personal growth and personal understanding, we do not promote unhealthy ego, rivalry or competitive fighting.

Ninjutsu is not aggressive or competitive and is truly about balance in all things of life.

You don't have to be able to do all things perfect, just to the best of your abilities. It is not about who's art is better, or who's sensei is right or the toughest and it's not about how fast you can get to black belt!

Ninjutsu is about reality . . . we deal in reality not fashionable fads or what's popular at the moment due to the latest movie etc.

As an example of a common misunderstanding in martial arts reality, did you know that Karate did not originate from Japan?
It's Okinawan (islands south of Japan), when the Japanese took control of these islands they enforced the rule of Okinawan people not carrying weapons, this is where Te (Hand) one of the original names of Karate was developed.

Karate - 'China Hand' or now known as 'empty hand' (as the Japanese changed the 'Kanji' to to avoid association with China) was taken back to Japan in the early 1900's by a professor from an Okinawan teachers college, first officially demonstrated in 1922 in Japan.

the kanji used for 'empty hand' does not mean 'nothing in hand' as many people think, it is from the Zen Buddhist philosophy meaning of 'to render oneself empty' as in 'empty the mind of selfishness and wickedness in an effort to react appropriately toward anything one might encounter'.
So . . . competitions and seeking glory by beating others kind of contradicts the meaning of the art!

So as you can see Karate really has no connection to the Samurai arts at all, so why do so many Karate organisations pretend to have a connection with the Samurai Bushido code, wear Samurai style outfits and use Samurai weapons?

Ninjutsu as we study it comes from a merged Ninja and Samurai lineage with both 'arts' intertwined and passed on by a succession of family lineages for over 800 years. This is one of the few arts that has an unbroken lineage!

This lineage is recognised in the DAI JITEN BUGEI RYU-HA the book of official schools of Japanese martial arts.
Ask instructors of other arts what their formal lineage is and how far back it can be proven and most cannot answer in detail.

What really is 'budo' (Warrior ways)

If you want to get fit, many other sports are better than most martial arts, if you want discipline many other organisations (Air or Army cadets etc) are better than most martial arts, if you want strength and power go to a gym . . . most martial arts or 'Budo' really only teach fighting skills!

If someone says to you 'Martial arts are character building' they are right, but know this, a person of poor character will end up a dangerous person of poor character if the martial art does not have a balanced curriculum including cultural and spiritual studies . . . that is the 'reality' of Budo !

We offer true warrior code practice with both written and practical formal study in the warrior code, with cultural studies required for advancement in the organisation.

The Ninja actually practiced separate fitness, strength, discipline skills as well as fighting methods brought together as a total package within the clans training while most other martial arts have had to adopt these skills to compliment their arts fighting skills.
