The principles of the art are timeless and provide a powerful means to modern day self-protection, as Ninjutsu is an art that can adapt to each practitioner’s needs. Our training is based on the principles of the Bansenshukai, a 17th century ninja text which contains a collection of both Iga and Koga Ninjutsu principles. The skills of Bansenshukai Ninjutsu are built around Ju-Jitsu, the samurai art of unarmed combat. One of history’s most refined martial arts, Ju-Jitsu was forged through hundreds of years of intense Japanese warfare. The art has served as a foundation for many modern martial arts, including Judo and Aikido.
CNC is an affiliate of American Ju-Jitsu, a system which contains elements of Shorinji Ryu Ju-Jitsu (as taught to L.A.P.D.), Seishin Ryu Judo, Chinese Kenpo, American Kickboxing, Pankration, and Combat Grappling. Our training methods are extremely effective for anyone looking for comprehensive self-defense training, or for those involved in law enforcement, security, bodyguarding, bouncing, or the military. We train on a wide variety of dangerous situations, and incorporate the often ignored adrenal effects and legal justifications of self-defense into our training. At CNC we pride ourselves on creating a fun, friendly, and ego-free environment where students can help each other reach their goals. Feel free to stop in and try a free class!
