WNC Bujinkan Kumogakure Dojo
Sgt. Brian Jenkins: B.C. Police Dept. & SRT, assistant team leader.
I started training Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu in the fall of last year (hard to believe that its been a year) and things have just been moving at warp speed ever since....
Taijutsu is a form of martial art from Japan that stresses awareness and sensitivity to your surroundings and dealing with the common everyday events where you become forced to defend yourself. It deals with both armed and unarmed combat as well as using your surrondings (and items in those surroundings) as defensive and offensive weapons. Literally translated Budo Taijutsu means "warrior body skills".
I got so into this system that I have been training at every opportunity at least 2-3 times a week. In March of 2007 Ira, Myself, and fellow student Greg Jenkins went to Japan to study for a 2 week period. It was really cool! We actually met and trained under the 34th Grandmaster (or Soke in Japanese) Masaaki Hatsumi. I learned a lot of valuable skills that have helped with everyday life as well as "on the job". Physically I am in better shape than when I was in high school, my mind is sharper and I am much more aware of what is going on around me. I think the all of the other good things in my life are directly related to beginning the training journey in this art. I have been promoted to Sgt. at the Police Department where I work as well as being appointed assistant team leader on our Special Response Team.
