In 2006 when our training group was forming with regard of when, where, and how to hold practice it was suggested that we embrace nature and work to develop fudoshin- immovable spirit in the Japanese martial arts. 

Training outdoors in nature, through the changes in weather and the seasons would cultivate that and provide insights into the martial spirit and taijutsu that we study.Following this advice we have been consistently holding out training outside to take advantage of the lessons of nature. 

In 2019 when it was asked if we should continue on this course, studying and framing taijutsu through the lens of nature, it was suggested in the positive to continue training and keep going in this format.

Dojo News

We are currently holding regular training sessions. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic still in effect we have altered our class structure- all training is held at maximum social distancing and any waza practiced does not involve touching or moving into the space of another training partner, so safe distance can be maintained at all times. Training under this format will continue until the pandemic has passed and contact is safe again. Ninpo Ikkan!

Located in Westchester, New York we are a martial arts training group dedicated to studying the Bujinkan dojo methods of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. As friends we come together to practice the martial arts. Questions, comments, feedback, and training inquiries may be directed to the group by email here.
