Chanbara: The Way of the Modern Japanese Samurai
Chanbara can be loosely interpreted from Japanese as a sword fight. Chanbara soft sword training allows you to practice Japanese-style sword fighting without danger of injury.
It demands discipline, timing, and accuracy. It compliments all Martial Arts techniques and styles. Become more physically fit, enhance reflex and reactive abilities, and gain focus.
Have a much greater awareness of your surroundings, allowing for a safer more secure life experience. Students can refine their stroke, stance, breathing, balance rhythm, and speed and gain overall strength and confidence.
Chanbara is so popular in Japan that it is offered through the Japanese Department of Education. Rising Sun Martial Arts Academy offers this popular training as part of our Kids, Tween and Teen program as an option for learning traditional swordsmanship in a safe and fun environment.
Learn the Ancient Art of Ninjutsu
At Rising Sun Martial Arts Academy, our Ninjutsu training is based on the Bujinkan method taught by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi, the 34th Grandmaster, and director of the International Bujinkan Dojo in Noda City, Japan. The art of Budo Taijutsu has its roots in the traditions of the ancient warrior Martial Arts including those of the Samurai and Ninja.
Relying on proper body alignment, positioning, and use of distance, angles, and timing coupled with tactics and strategy, Taijutsu is self-defense combat art focusing on relaxed, natural body movements. Students of all sizes and abilities can benefit.
Training incorporates Samurai, Ninjutsu, and Koryu tactics with modern combative strategies. The use of training weapons will be included, and custom weapons made by Grandmaster Jim Risinger may be purchased.
Students at Rising Sun Martial Arts Academy learn personal security, discipline, and a code of "warrior ethics" based on the ideals of the late Robert L Humphrey. This system of values helps students identify and evaluate “real” threats, thereby assisting in the appropriate action.
The goal of our Bujinkan Buyu or “warrior friends” is to provide an effective, all-encompassing self-defense training experience while keeping each lesson safe and fun. We offer a supportive, non-competitive environment for everyone.
Wherever I go, everyone is a little safer.
Wherever I am, anyone in need has a friend.
When I return home, everyone is happy I am there.
- Dr. Robert L Humphrey
