What is Ninpo?

 While most people aren’t familiar with the martial art of Ninpo, this system is a holistic approach to self-defense and combatives, recognizing the need to develop as a “complete” warrior – mentally, spiritually, and physically.

Ninpo at its core is a mentality of having the tools and skills to approach adversity, whether you are defending your family, de-esculating a situation, or even working to maintain internal balance.

In addition to self-defense and combative training, the philosophy of Ninpo places high value on personal virtues such as compassion, humility, fortitude, and discipline.

It is perfect for people that Our martial arts classes teach unarmed self-defense, weapons training, escaping from multiple attackers, and more.

Japanese Ju-jutsu contains diverse systems of combat going back hundreds, even thousands, of years. These systems, called ryu or ryu-ha, were generally independent of each other, serving specific functions within law enforcement, protection, and warfare. For this reason, various ryu-ha often share similarities with each other, while also practicing unique skills and strategies that set them apart from each other.

Awesome Dojo! Great people. Highly recommended.
