Ninpo Bugei Taijutsu is a Japanese Martial Art that has its origins some 1000 years ago. It has been renowned for its self-protection techniques and the comprehensive nature of its martial arts training which has always emphasized and integrated physical, mental and spiritual elements.

Both the Genbukan and the K.J.J.R. are international organizations founded by Grandmaster Tanemura. His federations ensure the credibility of instruction and the ranks of all its members. All instructors are personally certified by Grandmaster Tanemura.

Tanemura Sensei gives names to all registered Genbukan and KJJR dojo's and he has chosen Seika Dojo (which means Sacred Fire) as the name for this dojo.

The physical training taught by the Genbukan is focused on the use of Tai-sabaki, or the use of refined body movement to facilitate the skilful use of self-protection techniques, as opposed to using techniques which rely solely on muscular strength. Training is usually conducted with students working with partners so that they can develop correct timing, distancing, and body mechanics. Since the training is skill oriented, and not strength oriented, it has proven itself to be highly effective means of handling a confrontation with larger and stronger opponents and while natural speed and strength decline with age constantly practiced skills will improve over time.

Please note that no attempt to perform any of the techniques shown on this, or any other website, should be made without the supervision of a qualified (Genbukan/KJJR) instructor; and all injuries that may follow are the sole responsibility of the individuals concerned.
