The Nakano Dojo of Ninjitsu is unlike most martial arts schools today. It’s not about learning stylized forms, earned colored belts, or engaging in tournaments. It’s about functional, practical, realistic self defense…applying traditional principles to real world confrontations. We teach you how to think, observe, act and react to the unexpected. Our goal is to turn you into a quick-thinking, confident person, capable of defusing dangerous situations and disarming, disabling, or escaping all manner of assailants….just like a Ninja.
