Bujinkan Yamaneko Dojo Scottsdale

Training in the Bujinkan

We are the best in the world for self-protection and the protection of others. Budo Taijutsu utilizes minimal effort for maximum effect. As such, we are ideal for kids, ladies and elders.  Budo Taijutsu uses relaxed natural movement and distance to overcome an opponent's speed and strength.
This naturalness results in power from mere movement and evasion from a simple adjustment of position.  The Bujinkan incorporates strikes, punches, kicks, throws, locks, tumbling, weaponry, stealth, meditation and spiritual empowerment, making the Bujinkan one of the few surviving complete martial arts systems, undiluted by emphasis on tournaments, sport, or artificial rules.  The Bujinkan teaches Shikengata - real survival techniques!

Why Budo Taijutsu?
Since traditional ninja shared a special tie to nature, we hold most of our classes out doors. The martial artist who trains only on mats or smooth wooden floors is often unprepared for hard falls, bad weather, or uneven terrain. In contrast, our senior students are comfortable fighting in any environment, rolling and falling, even from height, on concrete, or in the dark.

Family Oriented Training
As you get to know us, you will find that our budo values also make us an extremely family oriented tight-knit group. Those who you sweat and train with become your most reliable friends. In the Bujinkan you will quickly learn the most efficient ways ever devised to defend yourself in a fight, but in the long run you will learn how to survive in life as a moral, just, and good human being.
