Overview of a typical Bujinkan Melbourne (Adult) Dojo training session:

A 90 minute session typically comprises three (3) distinct parts, namely:

Part 1 (approx. 30 minutes):
At the start of class, any School announcements are made by Shihan
Hodson followed by a brief budo philosophical and/or meditation period
then a formal Bujinkan introduction.  A period
of stretching then
follows e.g. to improve the bodies ability to train in the most effective
way. Then following this, fundamental break-falls, core conditioning /
basics (Kihon Happo & Sanshin) of body movement complete the first
part of the class.

Part 2 (approx. 30 minutes):
This period offers a focus on unarmed training based on traditional
techniques from the nine 'Ryu-Ha' (Styles/ Schools) of the Bujinkan.

Part 3 (approx. 30 minutes):
This period offers training focussed on armed (safety weapons) based
training. At the end of the session, the class concludes with an
appraisal of the class and may include training feedback and/or
philosophy based on budo and the martial arts.

Adult Fee schedule:

90 minute classes range from $22 (incl.GST) to $27.50 (incl.GST) per
