“One is to exercise and exert oneself greatly.”Maimonides. Mishneh Torah (Deot 4:14,15)


Is an old system of Japanese warfare-and survival skills. In the olden days the original Ninjutsu practitioners: the Japanese Ninja Warriors, where accomplished spies, guerilla fighters and military strategists among other things.

Today we learn mainly the unarmed as well as the armed survival strategies. The fighting schools include all elements of self protection: grappling, striking, weapons, body evasion tactics etc.,

In the Jerusalem Ninjutsu Academy we practice Ninjutsu based on the Bujinkan lineage with 900 years of recorded history.

Valuable knowledge for self defense has been transmitted for hundreds of years from master to master, generation to generation – and many of the fighting skills are battlefield proven.

In the Academy we also practice modern practical self defense that we greatly enrich with the ancient fighting knowledge coming from Ninjutsu
