Willamette Bujinkan is a small noncommercial dojo located at my home in Tigard Oregon close to Portland. All skill levels are welcome to join. We teach Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu which is a compilation of traditional Koryu martial arts.
Our Dojo strives to follow the teachings of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi “Soke,” our current Grandmaster to each of the Nine Ryuha that make up the Bujinkan.
Training aims to develop the ability to protect oneself and others using techniques that focus on disabling an attacker and or removing their desire/ability to continue as efficiently as possible.
Budo is not a sport martial art thus we do not compete. Techniques and philosophies focus on natural movement and developing ones spirit as a warrior. Strength and speed take a back seat to distance and timing.
The Bujinkan is an international organization created by Hatsumi Sensei to showcase and teach Ninpo and the Nine Ryuha he inherited from his teacher, Takamatsu Sensei.
