We are the best in the world for self-protection and the protection of others.
Budo Taijutsu utilizes minimal effort for maximum effect. As such, we are ideal for kids, ladies and elders. We are the original art of MMA in Tucson, AZ.
Budo Taijutsu uses relaxed natural movement and distance to overcome an opponent's speed and strength.
This naturalness results in power from mere movement and evasion from a simple adjustment of position.
The Bujinkan incorporates strikes, punches, kicks, throws, locks, tumbling, weaponry, stealth, meditation and spiritual empowerment, making the Bujinkan one of the few surviving complete martial arts systems, undiluted by emphasis on tournaments, sport, or artificial rules. The Bujinkan teaches shikengata - real survival techniques!
Because we are not a sport we target nerves, often numbing limbs with our blocks and strikes. Therefore we practice at one quarter speed and power to avoid injury. To the inexperienced our techniques may appear light in effect, but the exact opposite is true. When you earn kyu rank you can prove this via kinetic experience. For most one is enough!
Since traditional ninja shared a special tie to nature, we hold some of our classes out doors. The martial artist who trains only on mats or smooth wooden floors is often unprepared for hard falls, bad weather, or uneven terrain.
In contrast, our senior students are comfortable fighting in any environment, rolling and falling, even from height, on concrete, or in the dark.
As you get to know us you will find that our values also make us an extremely family oriented, tight-knit group. Those who you sweat and train with become your most reliable friends, and even extended family. We have even had students who met in the dojo and married! You will quickly learn the most efficient ways ever devised to defend yourself in a fight, but in the long run you will learn how to survive the battles of everyday life. This is where your training will pay unforeseen and long term dividends. Ask any senior student who has trained for years.
