Warm-up

Every class starts with Jūnan Taisō. This warming up series of calisthenics is composed of Ryūtai Undō (simple exercises to increase the flexibility of the body); and Shin Kokyū Sanaden (breathing exercises). You will find similar

Taijutsu

We always focus on the fundamental building blocks of our martial art: Ukemi Gata (rolling motion or break fall performed to get distance, to attack or to fall on the ground safely); Kamae (combat postures, and attitude that goes with it); Kosshi Jutsu (techniques to hit the Kyushō).

Then, we move onto the specifics of one of the 9 Ryūha, following the structure of the Ten Chi Jin Ryaku no Maki as taught by Sōke.

Weapons Techniques

Buki Waza focuses on applying he concepts of unarmed combat (Taijutsu to traditional Japanese battlefield weapons, introducing students to the three fighting distances (sanshin) of Bujinkan: short distance or Kosshi Jutsu (Tantō, Jutte, Kunai, Kōdachi); middle distance or Koppō Jutsu (Hanbō, , Bikken); and long distance or Ninpō (, Yari, Naginata).

Dōjō Etiquette

The Dōjō Rei (greetings) form a very important part of our tradition. The Teacher goes into Seiza no Kamae, and the students line up, facing him, in the same kamae, highest ranks on the right. The Teacher turns back and everyone put their hands in gasshō (hands joined in front of the chest). The Teacher says Shikin Haramitsu Dai Ko Myo ("In every event, there is a lesson"), and the students repeat this mantra. Everyone clap their hands twice; bow down; clap their hands once; bow down again. The Teacher faces his students, and the Senpai (the most senior student) says Rei! ("Greet!"), and everyone bows. Students say Onegaishimasu ("Please, teach us"), to which the Teacher replies Ikimassho ("Let's go"). The Teacher then stands up, and the Senpai says Kiritsu! ("Stand up!") before everyone stands up.

On exiting the Dōjō, the ritual is very similar to the starting of a class. The Teacher goes back into Seiza no Kamae, and the students line up, facing him, in the same kamae, highest ranks on the right. The Teacher turns back and everyone put their hands in gasshō. The Teacher says Shikin Haramitsu Dai Ko Myo, and the students repeat this mantra. Everyone clap their hands twice; bow down; clap their hands once; bow down again. The Teacher faces his students, and the Senpai says Rei!, and everyone bows. Students say Domo Arigato Gozaimashita ("Thank you for your teaching"), to which the Teacher replies Gokuro Sama Deshita ("You're welcome"). The Teacher then stands up, and the Senpai says Kiritsu! before everyone stands up.
