King County Bujinkan Dojo

Redmond, Washington

About Us

We offer training in the Japanese Martial Arts of the Bujinkan Dojo under the direction of Shihan Kyle Hayes, who receives his training from Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi in Japan who is the Soke (Head of the Family) or “Grandmaster”. 

We study the art of “Budo Taijutsu” 武道体術 (loosely translated as “Warrior Combat Arts of the Body”). 

武“Bu” translates as warrior“do” translates as way or path

“Tai” translates as body—“jutsu” translates as method


We are not a “commercial” dojo. There are no tournaments or championships as such and the class is an environment with emphasis on mastering one’s self while helping others through cooperation and collaboration. If you feel you have something to prove, this dojo is not for you.


The Bujinkan Dojo is composed of nine different historical schools or lineages. Each school has specialties and unique lesssons. The Nine Schools are listed below:

  •  Togakure Ryu Ninpo
