What's the Cost?
Unlimited Classes (Taijutsu & Weapons) - $65 per person per month.
These classes cover our Elemental Unarmed Combat, Traditional Weapons, and Weapons of the Samurai and Ninja of ancient Japan, along with modern adaptations.

What do I wear?
All of our enrolled students: Wear a black traditional DoGi, indoor Tabi (Ninja Shoes) or socks, and a black, grey, or white TShirt.
Visitors: Feel free to come in whatever workout clothes you like. Make sure they are comfortable and you are not too attached (as you may get them damaged during training).

What Ages?
We currently offer 2 sets of classes. Little Ninjas (5-10 yrs) and Jr. and Adults combined (11+ yrs). 

Why are Juniors placed with Adults?
The reason we place our Jr. students with adults is at that age we have found that our Middle School kids are placed around more adults and exposure to those dangers are more likely. This goes back to our philosophy of creating a realistic atmosphere for self-defense. Although highly supervised we allow controlled training with people that are bigger, stronger, and faster.

Why Taijutsu?

Although there are many different Martial Arts schools, and fighting styles, not all are created equally. Some will focus on winning tournaments, others will be focused on forms and dance routines, while few focus on real world self-defense.

In Yakima Taijutsu we focus on real world problems and answers! We do not compete. We do not wait for a bell to start. We do not focus on facing an attacker the same size as us (typically they will be bigger or think themselves stronger). We do not learn dancing, acrobatics, or flashy moves. The Ninja trains to get home, happy, and healthy! We train that you are already winning when you come home, and already are a champion amongst your loved ones! This is the "Art of Winning".
