Pathways Dojo

Our Programs

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, the culturally rich and diverse martial art known as Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja. Bujinkan combines nine separate combat systems that are based on traditional Samurai and Ninjutsu training. With roots in Japanese and Chinese technique and culture, Ninjutsu is a highly effective martial art that combines not only self-defense as practiced by the ninja of old, but also techniques handed down by the ninja for survival and awareness in our natural surroundings.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) provides practical, real world self-defense for the street using a uniquely successful system designed to empower anyone—regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability—using the time-tested techniques and teaching methods perfected by the Gracie family over the last century. Pathways Dojo is home to the only Gracie Academy Certified training center in Santa Cruz County licensed to teach official Gracie academy programs including: Gracie Combatives for adults, and Gracie Bullyproof for kids.

The healing arts of Tai Chi and Qi Gong both take a holistic approach to the body-mind-spirit connection. Studies focus on movement theory and technique, energy work, power generation, and awareness.
