Six Weeks of Samurai and Shinobi Summer Camp

Explore the exciting arts of the samurai and shinobi this summer at our six one-week camps which will dive into a different slice of our classical Japanese martial arts curriculum.

No previous experience is necessary and these camps are open to brand-new students as well as veteran students of our dojo.

What to expect

Each week our practice will cover fundamental skills that help connect minds and bodies. These skills transcend martial arts practice and bring a higher state of awareness, balance, and control to our daily lives.

But, this is a martial arts camp so we’ll also be learning about the mechanics of striking (hands, feet, elbows, and knees), the mindset of self-defense (being safe or surviving), and a different area of weapon arts each week.

  • Saho – manners and etiquette
  • Kokyuho – breathing exercises
  • Junan Taiso – flexibility and conditioning
  • Taihenjutsu – body changing arts – crawling, walking, leaping, landing, and rolling
  • Dakkentaijutsu – striking arts
  • Jutaijutsu – grappling arts
  • Goshinjutsu – self-defense
  • Bukijutsu – weapon arts

Camp Schedules

Camps will be held each week, Monday through Friday, from 1 – 3 pm at Kitsap Martial Arts Dojo (unless otherwise communicated).

Safety is our primary objective. Students will be equipped with appropriate training tools or equipment, provided with detailed safety instructions, and monitored carefully by instructors throughout the training.

Students will practice solo drills as well as partnered drills in each session to develop proper structure, timing and distance.
