Teaching Bujinkan-Ninjutsu in Dublin, Ireland, since the 1980's
Bujinkan Ninjutsu is a classical Japanese martial art which has evolved into a modern and practical form of self defence. Bujinkan Carroll Dojo is affiliated with the school of Soke Maasaki Hatsumi in Japan and is under the guidance of Shihan Dave Carroll.
Students co-ordinate technique, balance and body movement to defend themselves from both unarmed and armed encounters. Strength and agility are not prime requirements so this is an ideal self defence for men and women of all fitness levels.

1. How is a training session structured?
A typical class begins with a warm up to get people moving and increase blood supply to the muscles – sometimes this takes the form of running, or other aerobic activity. This can frequently be expanded upon to bring in aspects of training such as co-ordination or teamwork exercises.
