Since 1978, Shinbukan has empowered students through a Japanese martial arts learning environment (the Dojo).
The Dojo is a high pressure, ego-free, collective learning environment where one is consciously and unconsciously tested to expand their physical, mental and spiritual capacity, together. Beyond, the dojo is a place to revive one's primal instincts and intuition, to 'feel' more than 'think'.
It's often invisible: more felt than seen.
Kids are NOT naturally born with the tools to cope with the busy modern society. Through 'nature and nurture', the Japanese Dojo system demands 100% effort, humility, focus and cooperation. Beyond functional strength/mobility and striking, the Japanese learning system ultimately encourages unmoulding. Like a butterfly from its cocoon, true autonomy comes from going beyond the system, not away from it.
Ninjutsu is a traditional mixed martial art from Japan. We incorporate elements of Judo, Japanese Jujitsu, Aikido and Kobudo (weapons) for a balanced martial artist. We aim to understand the essence of Japanese martial arts culture, particularly the spiritual, and synthesise it into our day to day lives.
