Shoten No Jutsu

Shoten no jutsu is a set of martial arts skills where one runs up a vertical or semi-vertical surface without any aid or climbing tools. 

This training is found in our ukemi training and is part of our taijutsu body changing skills. 

One of the key elements- especially before one gets really high up and vertical is the ability to take ukemi and land- a forward, side, or back roll as needed. 

There is also an awareness inherent in shoten no jutsu- just how high are you- can you take ukemi? 

Does your present ukemi ability allow you to land and roll? 

Points to work on and consider in solo practice.

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.
