Hello and welcome to the West Georgia Ninjutsu Club website!  This site provides students with information of upcoming events, links, and general information to help them in their training.
A lot of people often ask me what ninjutsu is, asking if it's "like judo" or "like karate".  The truth is, those schools descended from the schools that are taught in the Bujinkan Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo. 
The Bujinkan Dojo was founded and is headed by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi.  Hatsumi-soke's sensei (Japanese for teacher) was Toshitsugu Takamatsu, and his sensei was Toda Shinryuken Masamitsu (among others), from whom he inherited the ninjutsu tradition from a long line of Toda family members.  There are nine ryu in the Bujinkan, each with their own unique aspects.  These ryu are:
Gyokko Ryu Koshijutsu
Koto Ryu Koppojutsu
Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu
Shindenfudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu
Kukishinden Ryu Happo Hikenjutsu
Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu
Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu
Kumogakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu
Gyokushin Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu
     What do all of these names mean?  Click on the ryu names on the site menu and find out!
     Here at the West Georgia Ninjutsu Academy, the main goal is mastery of the basics.  These basics are: Taihenjutsu (rolling, breakfalls, etc.), Sanchin no Kata, and the Kihon Happo.  These three basics are the "magic ingredients" upon which all the advanced techniques are derived from.  Mastery of these is essential!
     Because of the nature of Bujinkan techniques, there are no tournaments or free-sparring sessions with pads.  Learning a sport makes one learn techniques with a certain guideline or rule book, where sparring with pads leaves one with nothing more than a slapping contest.  Practice is with a partner, done in a controlled manner.  There are no trophies, no tournaments, no movie contracts to be won.  Bujinkan Ryu Ninjutsu is for your survival and that of your loved ones, and it should be used for that purpose ONLY.
