What we are proud of

  • Values lead the way, with professionalism trailing behind, echoing our credo: "Be a human being first, and only when necessary, a warrior."
  • Training, an endless cycle of repetition, unfolds week after week, year after year, decade after decade. "Training is not a choice," we have been frequently saying since 1976.
  • Testing and scrutiny occupy our training year as we subject each technique to the crucible of combat conditions. We question their efficacy and the intricacies of execution
  • Proficiency in communication begets professionalism. Only through a connected community of practitioners, capable of sharing insights and mutually assessing skills, can we embrace efficient and pragmatic skills in combat and conflict situations.
  • Learning is our lifeblood. AKBAN's practitioners engage in lessons beyond the walls of the dojo, immersing themselves in various martial arts. Such adherence to tradition aligns with AKBAN's ethos. The knowledge acquired reverberates within our community and reaches others through the AKBAN-wiki, a library for veterans seeking perspectives. We welcome teachers of other martial arts to impart fresh perspectives and novel combat ideologies. Akin to the tradition's ancestral roots, a tapestry of nine distinct systems.
  • Safety, a long-held revelation, underscores our ethos. The price of training on the precipice of readiness is not cheap; mundane injuries can happen long before an imagined battlefield emerges. Thus, safety remains paramount in our pursuit of training longevity.
  • Preparation bolsters our safety net. We employ a balanced and sensible fitness program, attaining extraordinary levels of physical prowess. AKBAN Ninjutsu's demanding nature mandates full-contact combat in every lesson, heightening the risk of falls and forceful encounters. Gradually, we work our bodies, acclimating them to the demands of our craft. Unnecessary aggression yields to measured engagement forces. Within the realm of training combats, maturity and physical conditioning stand as our steadfast guardians.

Our safety is also in preparation, we use the one of the most moderate and sensible fitness programs to bring our practitioners to extreme fitness levels. AKBAN Ninjutsu is a tough martial art, in which full contact combats are preformed every lesson. There's an extreme risk of injury due to falls and contact. We gradually prepare our bodies in order to accustom ourselves to the efforts. We avoid unnecessary aggression in training combats. Maturity and physical conditioning are our safety net.
