Bujinkan Gent

Martial Arts Dojo

Teaching practical self‑defense since 1993.


Learn how to use your body, your environment and weapons to effectively defend yourself.

Traditional roots

Dive deeper into Bujinkan heritage with traditional samurai and ninjutsu warfare tactics.

The Bujinkan system

Train your body and mind.

Bujinkan Budo Taijitsu is a martial art that goes back to six samurai and three ninjutsu schools. This mix of ancient Japanese army tactics, and tactics from the Japanese Ninja class make Bujinkan unique and versatile.

We teach an effective, modern version and at the same time stay true to our roots. The best way to understand this, is to experience it. Join a free class in October, keep an open mind, and have a lot of fun!

What to wear

Start with the basics.

You can start in basic training clothes: sweatpants and a t-shirt. We prefer dark colours, but don’t let that stop you.

You can change clothes in the separated locker rooms and you can take a shower after training.

After some training, acquiring a black Gi is the next step. A good quality Gi will probably last you a lifetime. It’s an investment worth making once you’ve decided that Bujinkan is for you.

Time & location

18:30–20:00 Monday & Wednesday.

UGent Sports Centre (GUSB), Watersportlaan 3, Gent.

From the start of May until the end of September we adapt to the weather. On sunny days ☼ we train outside on the grass. On rainy days ☔︎, we train inside on the mats.
