The arts of Ninpo and Jujutsu, it is said, are "alive." They evolve and adapt, changing to fit new necessities, cultures, times, and places. Ninpo has been incorporated into the tactics of various US Special Forces, while Jujutsu evolved into Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for modern sports purposes. This is what has kept these arts so relevant and cherished through the centuries. Goshinjutsu is a system developed by Grandmaster Tanemura to fit the needs of the modern age. The Grandmaster himself was an officer and teacher in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Dept. for many years. He has combined his years of real-world experience with his immense knowledge of traditional martial arts, creating the Goshinjutsu system. It is here that the ever-changing demands of diverse peoples, lands, and cultures can use Ninpo and Jujutsu principles to face the threats and demands of their time and place.
Most Goshinjutsu techniques are simple, direct, and efficient, maximizing pain and injury to the opponent. They work efficiently for students of all shapes, sizes, and strengths, against any opponent, regardless of how much bigger, stronger, or faster they may be. This makes Goshinjutsu the premier art for women's self-defense, providing a reliable repertoire of effective techniques which are universally applicable. Naturally, it's also invaluable for police, military, and security personnel, as all our arts have been designed to function in the scenarios they will likely face. Dealing with armed attackers wielding knives or pistols, defeating modern boxing and MMA styles, and preventing chokes, tackles, and throws are common themes in our Goshinjutsu classes.
