One of the key factors for success in the martial arts is consistent training

One of the key factors for success in the martial arts is consistent training

Adult self defense members join for a wide range of reasons. Some seek a mindfulness and depth of focus that will contribute positively to their everyday lives. Others are looking for a new activity that is perhaps more exciting than going to the gym. Some have never taken any martial arts classes before and don’t even know how to throw a punch. Others come to the dojo with extensive experience in other arts, but are still seeking something different.

While each person’s path is unique, with a different pace set by one’s individual capabilities, the pattern is generally similar. Everyone starts with Adult self defense Basic Ninpo Taijutsu (our self-defense martial arts method) in order to develop a solid foundation upon which to build an introduction to each of the elements and energies of the system of martial arts and self-defense.

We are always mindful of the safety of our students. All techniques are learned and practiced with safety foremost in mind. Adult self defense focus on skill-building rather than on fear and worry that they might get injured. We use pads, mats, and body dynamics to keep everyone safe during training. If you have any physical limitations, we are happy to work with you to find the right balance and scaling option that will still allow you to progress and grow in this exciting martial art.

We promote peaceful solutions to conflicts and learn to redirect potential conflicts entirely. Through an understanding of how people’s intentions manifest int heir bodies, we can manipulate potentially hostile encounters and change them into peaceful interactions.

If a physical conflict does arise, we will teach you skills that will enable you to shut down the aggression while keeping your body safe. We consider a successful resolution to a threat to be when you have returned home, safe and sound.

We also learn more deeply about ourselves; how to be peaceful and confident in our daily lives. This then allows us to be more positive and peaceful within our community.

The belt system at the Boston Martial Arts Center is used as a marker of progress and as a method of structuring the vast content of the system. It also helps us help you set goals for your advancement. Progress through the system is entirely non-competitive. The community of teachers and fellow students are here to help and support each other.

The First Part Awareness in Self Defense

The first part of awareness in self defense is stopping for a moment and seeing what is going on around yourself and within yourself. Do not just pass through your environment. Take your time and take in the environment you live in. Try to understand the flow nature....

Transitional Awareness and self defense

Winter Bootcamp 2017 Boston Martial Arts Center

December 1, 2017, 9:30am - December 3, 2017, 2:30pm

Modern life is full of chaotic situations, which can feel confining or out of control. At this boot camp we will explore how to use the techniques of ninpo taijutsu, from fundamentals to advanced, to move through chaotic situations to freedom of movement. Please join us for this one-time event at Boston Martial Arts Center. Open to all skill levels – white belt through black belt. Friday: On the first day, we will work on the fundamentals one needs to be successful in martial arts and movement. We will demo and teach the basic principles from white belt through black belt. We will explore how the basics move you to freedom. Saturday: We will explore how to find your way in chaos using the basics to advance skills to freedom. We will use Gyokko Ryu, Koto Ryu, Koppojutsu, Kukishinden Dakentaijutsu. We will apply the ideas from these schools to modern examples of chaotic situations, particularly relating to self-defense. Sunday: We will look at subtleties that lead to success when training. You can be doing everything correctly, but the technique still won't work. How do you find the subtleties that will move your technique forward? We will study different ways to explore martial arts that will help you have that break-through. We will step into the chaos to find freedom using randori (free movement) drills.
