Ninjutsu Tips: Self defense from Chairs and Seated Positions



Basic ideas about Ninjutsu self defense if attacked while seated in a chair. The timing of your first response and using the chair itself as a weapon are a few tips mentioned here. Watch this clip several times paying close attention to the variety of things Paul is doing with his feet, balance, timing, using Kyusho pain points, arm bars, Hajutsu Kuho escapes, etc. You should train every month to handle self-defense from a seated position in a car, at a desk, in a restaurant, at a bar, etc. Also practice in different spaces such as a cubicle vs a large room or inside a car. Your awareness of the environment and all people in it would be high enough that you would only need to defend against an attack as a last resort. Hopefully, you would recognize a threat in the room before an attacker would actually reach you and catch you by surprise while seated. If you sense a potential attack you would ideally get out of the chair (or lock your car door and drive away) before an attack is initiated against you.

Ninjutsu: Angle, Distance and Timing - Ninja Training Video Blog



Today's Bujinkan lesson is a basic demonstration about how small changes in your movement can make a big impact on your self defense effectiveness. "CONTROL YOUR ANGLE, DISTANCE AND TIMING" is one of the most common phrases you will hear in Ninjutsu training. Changing the angles of your movements (or your opponent's), controlling minute distance variations, and practicing the timing of your maneuvers are among the most critical aspects of your movement. The concepts presented in this video apply to everything in the art. Sometimes the "angle" concept is called the "third leg" because you can envision the 3 angles of where you are, where your opponent is and where you would want to "push" your opponent into an off-balanced state (which would be the opposite direction of where they would be able to maintain their balance as if they could put down a "third leg." Distance and Timing are both affected by your control of speed. All three elements constantly work together at the same time for greatest affectiveness.

Taijutsu: Bujinkan/Ninjutsu Lesson (Ninja Training Video Blog)



About TAIJUTSU ("Body Technique/Skill")

In this video "Taijutsu" refers to harnessing the energy of the momentum of your entire body to deliver maximum power for a strike or motion. Rather than limiting the performance of your movements to limbs alone, direct your entire body with motion that continues to "pass through or around" your target, increasing the energy that the opponent will be subjected to when contact is made. Despite the momentum inherent i this motion, you must maintain complete control during maneuvers paying special attention to angle, distance, timing and posture.

The word 'taijutsu' is also "a Japanese blanket term for any combat skill, technique or system of martial art using body movements that are described as an empty-hand combat skill or system. The term is commonly used when referring to a traditional Japanese martial art but has also been used in the naming of modern martial arts such as Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. More specific names that Taijutsu are typically used when describing a martial art, such as Jujutsu (focusing on grappling and striking), Judo (focusing on throwing and grappling), Aikido (focusing on wrist locks) and Karate (focusing on striking)." (from wiki pedia)

Ninjutsu Lesson: Controlling Space Between Opponents - Ninja Training Video Blog



THIS LESSON illustrates the concept of controlling a "bubble" of space between you and your opponent. Whether blocking, striking or simply moving, you can always be aware of the area of space between you and your opponent. You can "set up" your opponent to create space which you control, and you can strategize how to use that space to overpower or evade your opponent. The intructor demonstrates here only a few examples of how to accomplish this, such as positioning your arms inside the arm movement of your opponent. There are many more variations about this concept. Creating and controlling this "bubble" of space is like adding a weapon to your ninja self defense arsenal.

Kamae Lesson - Ninjutsu - Bujinkan - Basics of Ninja Training Video Blog



THIS VIDEO BLOG LESSON describes why the Kamae (postures) are taught - because they naturally occurred in battle scenarios and were therefore taught as formal postures by teachers in ancient Ninjutsu schools. Paul and Brandon demonstrate movement from one kamae to another as they practice basic self defense maneuvers. Also, very basic kamae posture tips are provided to help beginners avoid forming bad habits, especially knee position, keeping a straight back and keeping the head up straight. You can study more about proper basics kamae in the 9th kyu lesson of "Basics of Ninja Training" Black-belt video course. There are also "kamae" related to the stances/postures required to hold many of weapons used in Ninja training. "Kamae" is the Japanese word used to refer to "stances" or "postures" in the study of this martial art (Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu.) This clip is a supplement to the "Basics of Ninja Training" video black belt course, which goes into far greater detail on basic moves and how to get a black belt.

Ninjutsu Lesson - Posture Training Drill - Ninja Training Video Blog



This ninjutsu lesson shows some posture training and awareness ideas that will help you get a feel for proper posture and spine/hip/arm control. Tying a belt around your body and arms to restrict your arm movement forces you to concentrate on using your hips and back to control movement instead of putting too much strength and motion into your arms. Securing a hanbo to your back will help you keep your spine straight which forces you to drop into deep kamae and to move with proper hip/knee alignment. This gives you better balance and strength as well. Remember to keep your knee alignment over you feet, do not point your knees to far in or out. Also, do not lean forward, just sink straight down. These are the basics of "kamae" which is the Japanese word used to refer to "stances" or "postures" in the study of this martial art (Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu.) The hanbo is a 3 foot staff weapon used to strike, block and intimidate your opponent. You can learn about Kamae in the "9th Kyu" lesson of our Black-belt video course "Basics of Ninja Training" and you can learn about Hanbo in the 8th Kyu lesson. (A "kyu" is a level of instruction on your way to earning the black belt rank. There are 9 kyus.)
