Bujinkan Carroll Dojo has been teaching the Japanese martial art known as Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu in Dublin since the late 1980's. The Bujinkan is headed by the Soke of the school Masaaki Hatsumi. Bujinkan Carroll Dojo is directly affiliated with Soke Hatsumi and is under the instruction of Shihan Dave Carroll.
Training in the Dojo
Training is generally referred to as taijutsu (body arts), and is composed of both armed and unarmed techniques. While instruction in a large variety of weapons is given the primary focus remains on unarmed technique. Techniques taught in the Bujinkan use balance and the mechanics of the body to manipulate one's opponent. The modern approach to this ancient form makes it a form of self defence which is suitable for all ages and strengths, men and women. The regular structure of tuition involves beginners and advanced members training together. This continuous learning process allows each individual to progress at his or her own level, taking what one understands from each session.
