How old do I need to be to train?
We only hold adult classes and you will need to be at least 18. Bujinkan Ninjutsu is a military/self-defense system, not a sport martial art. It involves the use of weapons and techniques that can result in serious injury.
There are Ninjutsu practitioners in their 80s, however, they have been training most of their lives, a basic level of physical fitness is more important than your age. Bujinkan Ninjutsu is not a sport, so it does not demand the same level of fitness that some martial arts require but it does include throws, so some level of fitness is required. If you are unsure, you should seek medical advice before training. If you do need further assistance on this, please feel free to contact us
What should I wear?
You should wear loose comfortable clothes i.e. a tracksuit and trainers or plimsolls. Once you become more advanced you will need to get a black gi; the instructors or senior students will be able to advise you on this.
