What is Shinka Goshin Ryu Bugei?

Established in 2006, Shinka Goshin Ryu Bugei is dedicated to the development and promotion of Shinka Goshin Ryu Ninpo Jutaijutsu. This eclectic Gendai system seamlessly blends traditional Eastern martial arts with Western combat arts, incorporating modern training methods based on cutting-edge research.

Our system is rooted in a combination of armed and unarmed techniques designed to evade, adapt, and overcome aggressive situations. From body blending and evasion to joint locks, throws, and a variety of defensive tools.

In addition to the combat arts, our curriculum extends to mind/body meditation, first aid, healing techniques, survivalist skills, and philosophy on humanity’s place within the universe and as part of our community and world.          

Through our Eight Principles of Self-Defense and the philosophies of the Mitsu-Tomoe and NIN, the foundations of our system, students not only learn how to defend themselves but also study healing arts and survivalist skills, unlocking their true potential of mind, body, and spirit.
