Please take the time to read through the official Bujinkan Guidelines set out by Masaaki Hatsumi by clicking Here. In addition, below is a list of guidelines to be followed by members of the Townsville Bujinkan Dojo. This is to ensure the safest and most positive atmosphere for the instructor and students.
Training Anyone that wishes to train that has a violent criminal record is strictly prohibited. Communicate with your partner. Only through proper communication can practitioners ensure the safest possible training environment. Practice what is being taught. While variation is useful, it should not be used as an excuse to ignore the training being put forward by the instructor. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our training, we do not take anyone under the age of 18 years.
Dress Code Whenever possible, members are to attend class wearing a black, gi and pants. Keep jewelry to a minimum, Wear a wedding ring only. Please make every effort to wear the appropriate rank to class. If you have questions,ask the instructor.
Attitude Always leave your Ego at the door, pick it up on your way out of the dojo. Come to class with an open mind and be ready to learn. Lateness is sometimes unavoidable. If you are late, enter the training area as quietly as possible.
Weapons Bring to class only those training weapons that we are working with at the time
Hygiene Body contact is inevitable within the dojo. Members must keep their body, hair and feet clean at all times when in the dojo.
Bring a water bottle and a towel to training with you.
