Master Jim Risinger is an excellent teacher and a true scholar of the arts. He dedicates his life to teaching his students key principles of movement, defense, and balance. In some schools the mastery of a thousand techniques doled out from belt to belt is the way to mastery. There is nothing wrong with this method and tradition. But this dojo is different. In this school, mastering and demonstrating principles with greater and greater control, accuracy, and complexity takes precedent. Sensei and the other instructors pay attention to how you move and how well the principles are reflected in your body. Under his instruction, my husband and I have learned so much and developed a greater understanding of the martial way. We are two of Sensei Jim's first Ninjutsu (Bujinkan Budō Taijutsu) students in Santa Maria, and have been training here since the school opened over three years ago. As someone who would identify as uncoordinated and "non-sporting" for most of my life, I can say without ego that this practice has allowed me to become confident in my body and sure of abilities I didn't know I had. My skills of self defense, hand-to-hand combat, extended weapons training, instruction, meditation, yoga, and physical coordination have been honed and developed from practically nothing as a result of this family. This dojo is clan style, and works as a family unit. Jim, his wife "Soke" Terri, and his son Ian work tirelessly to run the school and support their students. We support and build one another up, and are dedicated to helping one another succeed. From kids karate classes to adult Ninjutsu classes to Tai chi, there are many options of practice that are adaptable to a great range of age, ability, and experience.
