study of martial arts is not just about punching, kicking, and fighting.
Actually it is about living. Through the physical aspects of the martial
arts we learn teamwork, goal setting, and work ethics. We learn to set
a goal and then what it takes to follow through and achieve that goal.
Here at the Ninpiden Dojo, not only will you learn practical self-defense
skills but, with consistent practice, you will uncover the deeper meanings
that comprise the essential quality of these traditional arts which,
in turn, will help you to replace the unwanted pressures and stress of
everyday life with internal peace, harmony, and balance. Physical training
at the Ninpiden Dojo is focused on Tai Sabaki, the refined use of body
movements, to provide a catalyst behind the defensive action. It does
not rely solely on muscular strength and speed, which decline with age.
Training is usually done with students working with partners so that they can
develop correct timing, distancing, and body mechanics. Since the training is
skill oriented and not strength oriented it provides a smaller person with an
effective means of handling confrontations with larger, stronger opponents. Throughout
all levels of training numerous exercises are employed which require the students
to develop both spontaneity in their abilities and a strong spirit. A student
should not be content to mechanically repeat the classic patterns (kata) in a
textbook situation. Martial Arts must be living, flowing, natural, and ever-evolving
to be effective.
This program is designed to teach you self-defense in a way that is
neither competitive nor encourages aggressive behavior. During class, you will
work with a partner instead of competing with that partner to develop an understanding
of why the techniques work. Along with learning a great self-defense system you
will also learn tumbling and acrobatics, specific body movements that will enhance
your balance, focus, and coordination, some basic Japanese language, manners
and team work. Throughout this program you will build strong, long lasting life
skills, improve your self-esteem, and increase your confidence. Once you complete
Program 1 you will be well prepared to move into Program 2.
In this program you will practice the same elite self-defense
techniques that were battle-proven during the warring era of
Japan. As a student you will learn to effectively defend yourself
by using evasive body movements, joint locks and controls, hand
and foot weapons, throws and mental awareness. Through this program
you will challenge your mind, body, and spirit. You will forge
a new level of self-confidence and overall level of fitness that
will increase your academic skills, heighten your family life,
and help develop your professional career.
