Please bring a mat to lie upon and a small towel to place one’s head. Beginners, spouses, and significant others are welcome.
The second session will consist of training in Taijutsu, including Bojutsu, six-foot staff techniques, in which participants will learn both basic and advanced movements for foundational ability in Bujinkan arts. Please bring a six-foot wooden staff.
The cost for each event is $50.00 for one session, or $90.00 for both.
