"The warrior is not someone who fights,
because no one has the right to take another life.
The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself
for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly,
the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves,
and above all, the children, the future of humanity."
- Sitting Bull

Bokken Training Drill Video - Ninjutsu Bujinkan Katana Strikes and Blocks

Watch the new video: Bokken Training Drill Video - Practice Ninjutsu Bujinkan Katana Strikes and Blocks

Bokken Training Drill Video - Or Use a Shinai or Foam Training Sword


14th Dan Shihan Mark Roemke uses a Bokken to demonstrate training drills to practice the distance and movement of strikes and blocks related to katana sword attacks. Moving to change the angle you use to face your opponent and stepping to alter your distance from the attacker are critical. This drill shows you how to safely practice some techniques to learn effective blocking and striking that can be useful for any katana martial art students.  Use a shinai, bokken or foam practice sword to avoid injury during katana training.


Sensei Roemke is demonstrating sword techniques from the Machida Family Enbukan school in Japan where he trains, and also under Soke Hatsumi, Grandmaster of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu.

How to find training Bokken and more information

Ninja Weapons Training Video - Katana Distance Control

Watch this Ninja weapons training video about Katana distance control.  You'll be able to train more realistically with this safety tip.  We do NOT recommend that you use a live blade, you should only use a wooden, padded bokken or a shinai to practice.  The Bujinkan ninjutsu instructors in this video are trained professionals using slow demonstration techniques in a controlled environment.



This video is a supplement "Shodan" level training tip that supports learning with the black belt video course "Basics of Ninja Training" by Ninja Learning Network.  (See information below about ordering the instant downloads or DVD/Bluray discs of the course.)  Shodan level training is intended to offer advanced tips for first degree black belt students of Bujinkan Budo Taijutus, the ninjutsu school of Grandmaster Hatsumi.

This video uses a "live" katana sword blade that is sharp and dangerous. You should never imitate this training video with any real blades or dangerous objects.  You should train with padded wooden "bokken" or "shinai" instead of katana which are easily ordered by mail anywhere in the world.

Notice that this training tip in the video is executed slowly for safety reasons.  Even when you practice with wooden or padded tools, you should start slowly with many repetitions.

"Ninja training weapons" used at most dojos can result in lethal consequences if not used carefully during practice. The most common set of Ninja training weapons found at dojos today are the katana (sword), bo shuriken (throwing needles or darts made from metal), senban shuriken (called "ninja" stars and they come in many shapes), the bo (staff), the tanto (knife), kunai and throwing knives, the shoto (a short sword somewhat like modern machetes), kasuri fundo (chain with hard bits on the ends), kasuri gama (a hooked blade on a handle with chain and weighted end), kyoketsu shoge (a rope ring on one end and a barbed blade at the other) shuko (hand claws) the jutte (metal bar with a hooked piece) tessen (a metal "fan") and spear-like weapons on a staff such as the yari and naginata. Ninja training weapons today also include the use of common objects like buckles and cups to fend off attacks.

Core Strength Ball Exercises for Martial Artists - Junan Taiso "conditioning"

Core Strength Ball Exercises for Martial Artists - Junan Taiso

 Core Strength Ball Exercises for Martial Artists - (Junan Taiso "conditioning")


 Find martial arts conditioning and training supplies at Ninja Learning Network


Martial Arts Conditioning Tip: "Five Typical Training Program Mistakes
"
(Excerpt here by permission: "Cosgrove Training Tips" by Alwyn Cosgrove)

1)Sacrificing quality for quantity
2) Seeking fatigue/soreness

3) Excessive focus on loading (as opposed to movement)
4) Lack of diversity in routines
5) Lack of continuity (Use long-term plans not short ones)

Remember the ironic rule of strength training for sport. The objective is not to get stronger per se but to improve athletic performance. Do not get caught up in the numbers game and do not confuse gym improvements with real world or sports world improvements. The greatest athletes in the world do not necessarily have the greatest bench presses in the world. The greatest athletes in the world have an ability to produce useable force on their field of play....A good strength and conditioning coach looks to improve athletic performances – not just gym lift numbers.

Katana - Shohatto Technique from Enbukan Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu

Katana Samurai Sword - Shohatto form from Enbukan "Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu" (A Bujinkan Ninjutsu Black Belt Demonstration from Ninja Learning Network.) This is the basic form of Shohatto, Standing, in four directions. This Katana video demonstratino uses the Katana sword and the form is from Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu, the Enbukan martial art of the Machida family in Japan.






This Katana Shohatto lesson

 is a free bonus clip for the "Basics of Ninja Training" black belt video course at http://www.Ninja-Learning-Network.com (Instant Download, DVD or Bluray) You can watch more katana and Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu lessons in the video course.

Katana form of Shohatto is a basic samarai sword school form, demonstrated here in 4 directions while standing. The four sections of the form are 1) nuki uchi, draw 2) kiri oroshi, cut 3) chiburi, flick/clean 4) noto, stow

About Enbukan: 

Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu is the art of draws and cuts with the Samurai Sword of Japan. It is a traditional martial art taught by Soke Machida Kenshinsai of Nodashi Japan. Machida Soke, born 1932, learnd the art since he was 3 years old from his father and grandfather. Machida Soke teaches that practicing martial arts is not sport. The aim of the martial art is to acheive proficiency in techniques that can immediately annihilate your enemy attacker. Enbukan teaches fearlessness.

About Samurai Sword schools and formal training:

There are different styles of this form in various schools including seated stances, other terms and so on. Much intricate detail about perfection of movement within this form has been omitted in this basic video, it is a beginner's example of the moves. Centuries of samurai tradition about katana and blade-based study are not discussed here. Many sword-based schools of study have different techniques and terminology. Students with questions about these specific techniques should research the Machida family and Enbukan information about Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu. This is not Bujinkan specific teaching, but many Bujinkan and Ninjutsu masters infuse this learning into their daily training and survival skill training.

About swords and other bladed weapons in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu:

Read the above information about formal techniques. Then consult Hatsumi Soke's teachings in his Japanese language videos and books. Some katana schools or iaido study are highly technical and precision-based. However, that is not the case in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, generally speaking. Nearly all objects, including traditional blade weapons, are just tools for killing an enemy in whatever manner is effective. PERIOD. The original  samurai passed down strict guidelines for using many types of weapons - and those arts are useful for modern training and intellectual pursuit. But in the Bujinkan you would use any object in whatever method works for survival against attacks. All weapons videos presented by Ninja Learning Network, including the Katana Samurai sword forms, should be viewed with the survivalist point of view in the Bujinkan.

Thanks for watching "Katana - Shohatto Technique from Enbukan Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu"

Bujinkan Ninjutsu Technique - Kaiten Slow Roll Body Control Drill

Bujinkan Ninjutsu Technique - Kaiten Slow Roll Body Control Drill

This training technique for learning how to micro control your body when you practice your Kaiten (rolling) can help beginner and advanced training situations. Especially for beginners, this can help you slowly learn good body control and awareness. It will help you avoid most of the typical injuries that happen to beginners who are usually hurt from diving into rolls too quickly with almost no actual control. For advanced students you can benefit from this Bujinkan Ninjutsu technique by feeling a new way to roll. But the main benefit for advanced Ninjas is a new way to focusing on what every part of your anatomy is doing during this technique. It will improve awareness of your body that applies to all other maneuvers.You should try this with as many variations in direction and slight body angle changes as possible. Also grab a hanbo, bokken, rokushakubo, plastic pistol or rope to feel how subtle changes occur during the motion because you are holding an object. Try the rolls while "using" those objects as if you have a self-defense intent.
