Budo Taijutsu


We practice the Japanese martial art of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (divine warrior martial arts ways of moving the body), which is an expression of martial arts movement transmitted by Masaaki Hatsumi.

Drawing from the lessons of old-style Japanese martial arts schools (ryu-ha) that he inherited from his teacher Toshitsugu Takamatsu, Masaaki Hatsumi's budo taijutsu may be described as a system of philosophy expressed through movement of the individual.

Training incorporates a variety of movement skills, including strikes, throws, locks, and immobilizations, along with studying a number of traditional Japanese training tools such as the sword, stick, and spear: kenjutsu, bojutsu, sojutsu.

These martial arts lessons are used as a way to understand human movement, how the individual moves, how other people move, and how they all move when it come together, allowing for the practitioner to adapt appropriately for the situation at hand.

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.

Questions, comments, feedback, and inquiries may be emailed to the group here: BujinkanShinmyoken@gmail.com.
