The main focus of the Aiki Ninjutsu student is to become a modern-day warrior which is defined in the Jizaikan as “an empowered and compassionate protector of others”. The Jizai warrior struggles to become a positive force in his community; at the same time, he guides his life experience in a way that enables him to live the life he wants while making the world a better place. To attain this goal, the modern-day warrior must understand that every principle, technique, strategy, and secret he will learn during the training has two sides: an obvious side or omote and a not-so-obvious side or ura. In simple terms, each technique learned is a vessel containing a lesson that can be applied in a physical confrontation and in everyday life relationships. By understanding as well as mastering these secrets, the Jizai warrior student will understand how to lead himself and the people around him in a way that will benefit all of mankind.
Due to the violent nature of martial arts, it is vital that the real practitioner of the warrior arts understand that he has to balance the destructing techniques he learns with the proper training to have a good heart. This two-fold path of the warrior will allow him to be of use to society instead of a detriment.
The Jizaikan learner will have a deeper understanding of the significance of training the body, mind, and spirit to attain the real understanding and mastery of a warrior. Students of Aiki Ninjutsu learn how to embody the integrity, honor and mastery that so many martial artists have sought, but so few have found.

Aiki Ninjutsu, a martial art founded in 2003 by Thomas Jotoshi Maienza. This elegant martial and esthetic practice merges together twelve various Japanese lineages that have been passed down for more than a thousand years. Six of these systems were utilized by samurai families; the other six were used by ninja clans of feudal Japan. These twelve lineages have all been recognized as individual martial arts. Aiki Ninjutsu is the pioneering martial art to integrate altogether these systems to produce a curriculum utilizing the best of each art.
On paper, one might feel that the 12 systems have contrasting strategies and philosophies. This could not be further from the truth. By merging these systems, a learner masters how to utilize their opponent’s Ki or energy and how to make his own Ki as powerful as it can be. It becomes a complete system by utilizing the in and yo (Japan) or yin and yang (China) philosophies. This is an acknowledgment that all things in life have two sides or duality and that nothing in and of itself is bad or good, strong or weak, etc.
Aiki Ninjutsu includes striking, joint locks, grappling, throws, ground fighting escapes, multiple attacker and modern weapons defenses, such as clubs, firearms, and knives, and historical weapons training, such as the following:
* rokushakubo (6-ft. staff)
* sanshakubo or hanbo (3-ft. staff)
* shuriken (throwing blades)
* kusarifundo (weighted chain weapon)
* tanto (knife)
These weapons are taught for their historical importance as well as giving the Aiki Ninjutsu student the skills necessary to use any daily object as a weapon for his defense.
We have children classes where the focus is on Confidence, coordination, concentration and character building. Children learn to assertive not aggressive.
