• Training in context

    Conflicts happens in different contexts. Techniques that work in one context can fail in another. Technique is not enough.

  • Ancient arts, modern times.

    Samurai and ninja combat arts in their full traditions, taught in modern NYC.

  • Outdoor training, all year long.

    Conflicts don't always happen in controlled indoor places, like the dojo. Training to be prepared for all situations is an essential part of what we do.

  • Warriors and weapons

    Sticks, knives, swords, spears, chains, ropes. Everything is a weapon.

Welcome to Muzosa Bujinkan Dojo of NYC


Welcome to Muzosa Bujinkan Dojo of New York City! This year we're celebrating our 20th year of teaching the ninja and samurai combat arts of the Bujinkan in NYC, with an emphasis on applying ninjutsu in the modern world. Students learn a practical martial art that has survived centuries of warfare in Japan and is adaptable for the needs of New Yorkers. In addition to our classes and seminars, we also offer articles and other resources on this site to enhance the training of Bujinkan students and other martial artists.

Thanks to the dozens of people who came out for our 20th anniversary seminar! It was an amzing success, and we are gratified that so many came out to celebrate with us. Special thanks to all the instructors who traveled from out of town to be with us, including Jack Hoban, Roy Wilkinson, Chuck Corey, Cathy Lewis, Karl Koch, Don Roley, Tim Brown, and PJ Dixon. Here's to the next 20 years!

With classes in 4 locations in NYC across 3 boroughs, we have plenty of training options with our experienced instructors.

And don't forget to become our fan on Facebook! We're constantly posting updates and photos there as well.

If you're not already a part of the Muzosa family, come to a free class and see what you think.
