Black Snow Martial Arts Centre offers traditional Japanese martial arts classes, zen meditation, padwork and conditioning classes

What is Ninjutsu & Samurai Jujutsu?

We practise a wide variety of unarmed techniques, weapons, principles and tactics which were developed throughout 900 years of turbulent war in Japan. During this period, combat became a highly skilled craft from which many schools emerged - each refining techniques and methods to suit their needs. There were schools of training for the battlefield warrior, the police, the Samurai royal guard, the Ninja assassin and the female spy. Nine of these schools have been handed down which are today studied collectively as 'Ninpo Taijutsu'. These are primarily Ninjutsu and Samurai Jujutsu schools which have many different strikes, locks, throws, restraints and weapons. The dilligent study of these arts offers a high level of technical ability in combat and a great opportunity for self-development and forging of the spirit.

What are classes like?

We have really enjoyable classes with great training in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Classes are suitable for people who are keen to learn and physically able. Previous martial arts experience is not required. We practice techniques and principles with emphasis on correct body movement, position, balance, distance, timing, feeling and flow. We have a range of martial arts classes for everyone including adults, teens and kids. We also run a padwork and conditioning class and a meditation class. To achieve results, students are expected to attend class on a weekly basis. The martial arts is a discipline which forges the spirit, refines awareness and develops the self.
