The Roselle Bujinkan Dojo will have its last class on Sept 26th. It was a great two years of training at this location, but due to issues far beyond control this location will close.

And as a result the name will change with a new location. In October we will have classes outside. Schedules will be posted when the name of this page changes.

Ashisabaki foot work drills

Some footwork [Ashi-sabaki] drills to work on. The developing fast feet and balance throughout movements is one of the keys in the martial arts.

04/10/2020

Announcement: When the dojo reopens we will work on the san shin no kata and multiple weapons, but we will primarily focus on the sword, jo, bo, and naginata.

Our focus will be on mosoku no ho, sabaki, and muto dori. We will attempt to minimize physical contact until there is a vaccine or if our geographic area is virtually clear of cases.

This is the time to put a focus of your internal balance, independent muscle control, and proper alignment. We will focus on developing a proper mind and body to be a vehicle for taijutsu.
