    That's odd, our dojo isn't a BBD dojo...there's a BBD dojo in Govan, but the dojo I train at (which is listed there on dahexdragon's link) is proper Bujinkan...but I digress.

    oh, and dahexdragon, you can find our dojo's website (which is badly in need of an update) at .

    I'm interested in taking up Ninjutsu and was wondering if anybody knows of any dojos in the Newcastle area (preferably reachable by public transport :)). I've been looking around on the internet and think I've found one possibility, so I'm curently following that up, but I figured I may as well ask here too - in case my lead doesn't pan out.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Looking for a good ninjitsu school in Melbourne(Australia) not a Kevin Hawthorn
    school........Must have proper facilities(Dojo) and not in some High School
    hall............Either Togakure or bujinkan, preferably Togakure.

    Why does it matter if it's a "proper" dojo or not?
    Some people can only teach in a school hall where they teach is not a relfection of skill!

    The people make the dojo not the four walls!

    If you manage to find a good x-kan club/dojo then don't worry about where it's held, be thankful, it took me ages to find my club and I wouldn't care if they were teaching out of a broom cupboard. It's the level of instruction that's important.

    Why preferably Togakure Ryu?
    I'd do a search re: Togakure Ryu and Bujinkan ;)

    Togakure Ryu is the Bujinakan. Bujinkan is just the umbrella name and Togakure Ryu falls under it. Hatsumi Soke is the 34th lineage holder of Tagakure Ryu

    Nick Mandilas Resistance is an option..

    Ninja Nick, The x-can schools cover togakure ryu as one of the styles of the nine in it's system. So looking for one that just focuuses on togakure is like going to a swim class that only taught freestyle as apose to one that taught freestyle, back stroke, breast stroke, treading water and butterfly. Sure you're learning to swim in both classes, but which one do you prefer?

    Our dojo is to my knowledge, the only full-time bujinkan dojo is Victoria, with over 70 full time adult students and near a hundred juniors. I have PMd you the details, NinjaNick. Hope this helps.

    closest is poss Hinckley just outside Birmingham I think its one of Keith Porters (14th Dan) shibu (dojo branches)

    There are 3 or 4 dojo's in an around Birmingham.

    Why don't you check out you local train, bus service and if i am attending the dojo and you get to the nearest station i will pick you up.
