BUJINKAN BRISBANE NINJUTSU : SHINKEN DOJO
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is the collection of martial arts and techniques inherited by Soke (Grandmaster) Masaaki Hatsumi. There are nine schools of martial study forming the core of the Bujinkan, each with their own specialties and differences. Three of the schools are Ninjutsu, and are the only forms of Ninjutsu surviving, while the others are more typical of the Japanese martial arts of antiquity.
My name is Dean Hensley and I am the founder and chief instructor of Shinken Dojo. I have training in martial arts for 10 years in Freestyle Martial Arts, Jujitsu and Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. The reason I like Budo Taijutsu is that is combines the traditional style of the Japanese Ninja with techniques such as rolling, throwing, strikes and unarmed self defensive skills. These are taught to reflect realistic situations which can be encountered in todays society.
In a recent trip to Japan I passed my Godan test (5th Dan) on the 21/11/2014.
