Come join us with our special guest instructor, Jack Hoban to train in a non-competitive atmosphere that is intense and complete, yet, sustainable, safe and fun.  The training methodology that Jack will be sharing is based upon Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, and includes both classical and modern approaches to protection of self and others.

Budo Taijutsu relies on proper body alignment, positioning, and use of maneuver and tactics, not solely upon strength, performance and speed; as a result, individuals of all body sizes can benefit. Perceiving and controlling the tactical space between yourself and the opponent is critical to mastery.

The training covers kicking, punching, grappling / throwing, and weapons handling from ancient ninjutsu and koryu systems, as well as, modern combatives strategies. 

A key component of the training is the incorporation of "warrior ethics," and the dual-life (protection of self and others) value system based on the ideals of the late Robert L. Humphrey, noted conflict resolution specialist, and author of "Values For A New Millennium." This value system helps students identify and evaluate real threats, thereby, assisting in the appropriate action.
