Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu & the Sieritsu Dojo
The Bujinkan Dojo "Divine Warrior Training Hall" is Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi's international organization for teaching the essence of nine ancient Japanese martial traditions.
The art of taijutsu emphasizes the use of the whole body as a unit to provide power within the techniques. Unarmed techniques involve training in tumbling and rolling (ukemi), striking and kicking (dakentaijutsu) and grappling and counters (jutaijutsu.) Armed techniques involve the use of various traditional and modern weapons. All weapons are taught as natural extensions of the taijutsu unarmed movements. This eliminates the need to learn a totally new set of movement for each weapon studied.
The Sieritsu "You Stand Up" Dojo has operated in the Phoenix Metro area since 2009, under the leadership of Shihan Jocelin Meesenburg (Judan) and with the guidance of Shihan Karl Koch (Ju-Godan)of the Hidden Mountain Bujinkan Dojo. Sensei Meesenburg has trained in the Bujinkan since 2000 and has been teaching since 2003
