Beginners welcome to start at any time

  • BEGINNER FRIENDLY. No prior experience needed. Close supervision and personalised guidance by Instructors.
  • SAFETY FIRST. There is no sparring as taijutsu is not a sport or a competition.
  • TECHNIQUE OVER SPEED & POWER. Precision is prioritised over speed and power. If we need to use a technique in real life, we have a better chance of success.
  • USE ANY & ALL WEAPONS. We use traditional Japanese weapons such as the tachi (curved longsword), naginata (glaive), bo (quarterstaff) , shuriken, amongst others. However, taijutsu lays the foundation for effective use of any object as a self-defence tool.
