Bujinkan Martial Arts Dojo with two locations, central Tucson and Vail, Arizona.

Tucson Bujinkan Dojo was started in 1984 as a shibu affiliated with Peter Crocoll by Eric Barfield.

The Bujinkan arts are based on relaxed natural movement, distance and timing as opposed to speed or strength. For centuries these arts have proven to be ideally applied to defense of self, others and community. They change and adapt readily to modern conditions and also foster character and personal growth.

Ninja Kids

Ninja kids classes are an introduction to martial arts for ages 5-10. We focus on taijutsu-based movement that is play intensive. We don't teach punching, kicking or other assault-based movements until students have developed the appropriate level of maturity. Classes are $5 and are held at a mid-town location twice a month. Contact us for more information.
