Can You Visit A Martial Arts School?

If you are already studying a martial art and are part of a school, can you visit another martial arts school or dojo?

Our policy is that all are welcome to inquire and find out more about the movement we practice and the martial art that we study, including visiting to watch or take a few classes out of curiosity.

Even if you are not a long term or full student of or group, as a human being with the capacity for tremendous growth, what about the possibility that in even take one class, and seeing the mechanics of taijutsu, you learn that piece that takes you to that next level.

Anything is possible in taijutsu…

In terms of visiting, the rules depend on your current school and teacher.

Some schools are very strict- no visiting or training with others inside or outside the tradition, and often for very reasonable reasons.

Others are more open door, try it and find out.

In visiting another martial arts school one should start with where one is first and reach out second.

And of course new and returning Bujinkan dojo friends are always welcome as we are one budo family under Soke.

Located in Westchester New York, the Bujinkan Shinmyoken Dojo is a martial arts training group founded in 2005 with the aim of coming together as martial arts friends to study the Japanese martial art of Masaaki Hatsumi through the lessons of the Bujinkan dojo.

As friends (buyu) we come together to grow, learn, and share our individual potential in this wonderful martial art.
