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".
Since we are a private group, no longer operate a commercial school, and with current Covid restrictions please fill out the form below and we will contact you when an opening is available to join.
