The Art of Ninjutsu
Ninjutsu translates as "the art of perseverance". It is the collection of skills and techniques passed down from the historical shinobi-no-mono (aka ninja) of Japan. It is a comprehensive martial system that includes acrobatics, body conditioning, and techniques of striking, grappling, and weapons. We use a variety of training methods, such as solo forms, paired forms, flow drills, weapons sparring, and more.
Unlike other ninjutsu schools, we incorporate sparring and other active resistance exercises into our training.
Samuel Zavaletta is the owner of Cedar Park Dojo and the head of its ninjutsu training group.
With over 20 years of experience in the martial arts, his passion for training has led him to explore a number of arts, including Taekwondo, Kickboxing, Aikido, Tai Chi, Fencing, Ninjutsu, BJJ, Jujutsu, and HEMA. An ardent supporter of cross-training, he believes that all arts have something of value to offer. He holds the rank of 4th degree black belt, granted to him by his mentor, Kacem Zoughari.
