Welcome to the South West's Premier Ninjutsu School
Founded in the early 80’s and located in the south west of England, The Ninjutsu Academy of Plymouth trains students in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, more often referred to as Ninjutsu. It prides itself on maintaining a welcoming & friendly atmosphere while passing on a distinct and unique martial tradition to new generations of Martial Artists.
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, headed by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi 34th Grandmaster of Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu, is a compilation of a total of nine schools of Japanese Martial Arts with more than nine-hundred years of traceable martial tradition each, three of which are schools of Ninjutsu the rest being of other classical warrior school descent. The result of this amalgamation is an impressively unique and comprehensive art spanning a vast array of classical & modern weapons as well as unparalleled unarmed combat techniques, stealth, survival and intelligence methods.
Ninjutsu is as relevant today as it was to the citizens of feudal Japan more than 900 years ago. It has helped generations of people not only protect themselves from threats but it builds strength of body and will, just as much as it builds on confidence and motivation.
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (Ninjutsu) is one of only a handful of Martial Arts which has resisted becoming sports orientated and so there are no competitions or competitive influences in our training.
