The first priority of a ninja is to win without fighting

Masaaki Hatsumi

A warm welcome to the Ninjutsu Dojo. It is in these doors that you will be trained in stealth, agility and control as you progress through the central warfare disciplines of this Japanese Martial Art. Our tranquil and friendly environment is open to students of all abilities and interests, whether you want to delve into the way of the Ninja or just have some dynamic fun.

What makes Ninjutsu different?

  • Unlike other martial arts taught at Royal Holloway there is no competitive element nor point-scoring involved with Ninjutsu, just pure martial arts for the purpose of self-defence.
  • Ninjutsu is the only martial arts class that teaches armed combat at Royal Holloway. We teach the disciplines of traditional weapons such as swords (katana), staves (bo, jo, hanbo), and knives (including the iconic shuriken!) as well as modern and improvised weapons.
  • Ninjutsu is a full-contact sport. You will learn to apply techniques with a partner to get a feel for how they work in practice, and how it feels to be on the receiving end! 
  • Our training is very practical with most of the session spent honing proffesional techniques.

Who can train?

  • Anyone. Ninja warrior or total beginner, all experience levels are welcome and represented.  

Who teaches the sessions?

  • Lessons are lead by an external coach certified by the Bujikan Dojo, Japan, who has been guiding the club since its founding 20 years ago! Black belt; deep knowledge of the art; rich hitsory of coaching experience - this combination delivers unparallel value to each of the training sessions.
  • The club has a number of black belts who will give you individual support during lessons.
  • Our friendly atmosphere means that there are always people willing to help no matter what you're finding difficult and share their personal expertise in the martial art.
