Ninjutsu is a martial art practiced by ancient Japanese warriors called “shinobi”, better known in Western culture as Ninjas, as well as Japanese “samurai”. It incorporates diverse fields such as strategy, philosophy, survival skills and combat skills. We are an inclusive martial art club, open to all skill levels, from complete beginner to black belts. Everyone is given the opportunity to train together, regardless of skill set, allowing all members to improve and gain experience at their own pace.
During our training sessions, we learn fighting techniques, both armed and unarmed, as well as more applicable self-defence techniques in a relaxed and uncompetitive atmosphere. The techniques taught within Ninjutsu aim to develop body self-awareness and the ability to move your body for defence against confrontations. In addition to our regular weekly training, we regularly organise social events – pub crawls, dining out, attending trampoline parks, paintballing and many others. If you are interested in a martial art that was practiced by ninjas and samurai’s – we welcome you to University of Birmingham Ninjutsu Sports Club.
