What to Expect
The art of ninjutsu is more than learning the physical skills of the martial arts. It is also finding your inner self through physical conditioning, meditation, and discipline.
With the practice of meditation one develops key elements of increased awareness and detachment while increasing his/her sense of inner peace. It is through meditation that ninjas learn how to reach the “Ku”(no-self, void), and to control the energy called “Ki” which is the essential life force existing in all things in the universe.
Kujikiri is a series of nine simbolic hand gestures. It invokes the spiritual and mental strength. The hand signs are believed to be able to channel energy. The hand signs were taken from the practices of the early buddhists. They are used to build confidence and strength in the practitioner. They are also believed to enhance one’s senses of danger and enable one to foresee death.

4. The elective training
Our training menu is made up based on the idea of Gorin (The Five Element Code). According to the old mountain buddhism that our ancestors followed, the universe is made with five basic elements; earth ,water, wind, fire and sky(or void) and their transitions. Seeking to get the “ki” energies of these elements, the training is divided into five categories, such as earth training (basic empty-hand combat skill).
