Ninjutsu – The Art of the Ninja
Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja, is an ancient Japanese defensive style of martial arts descending originally from China. Ninja means ‘invisible men’, due to their skills in stealth to avoid the enemy and, if caught, defend themselves. The skills involved include rolling, striking, blocks, defensive tactics and situational awareness. These are modified to teach kids practical techniques which can be used in everyday situations. The benefit of learning Ninjutsu is that kids practice on sensei’s (teacher) which helps their confidence.

Class sizes at Hokkaido Wolves are small so kids get more opportunities to use their new skills. It also allows for more individualised attention for new-comers. Held twice a week on the Southside, kids can attend one or both classes each week during term time. There are no contracts, allowing the flexibility to pay only for the classes your child attends. Reasonable class fees and yearly membership make this one of the most affordable martial art schools in Brisbane. Most importantly, the FIRST CLASS IS FREE to allow your child to participate to ensure they are comfortable in continuing.
