What is it all about?
“the traditional Japanese art of stealth, camouflage, and sabotage, developed in feudal times for espionage and now practised as a martial art.”
We offer the whole package at CrossFit Shropshire and are fortunate tohave Armi on our team. He is a black belt in Bujinkan Ninjutsu and he runs our box as his Dojo.
Ninjutsu is a complete fighting system dealing with the Physical, mental and spiritual aspects of student development. Techniques cover locks, throws, ground fighting, multiple attacks, modern weaponry, all types of traditional Ninjutsu weaponry. In Ninjutsu there is no restriction on the type of available technique we can add on to our training.
You can learn the martial art where it covers 9 schools and it is truly an art form so will take years of effort to master. It also transfers into real life very well.
