You - or your parent or guardian -  MUST SIGN THE WAIVER - before being permitted on the dojo mats.


This means you can attend sessions Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday between Cessnock and Cardiff dojo's.


Prospective students must contact one of the instructors to receive permission to attend a session - and simply allow the instructor to prepare and 'look out for ' a new face.

Children under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. 

NO training can be undertaken without signing a waiver. This document demonstrates that the student/ or their guardians acknowledge their own choice and responsibility to train in a martial art and indeminifies Bujinkan Kokusai Dojo instructors, venue providers and guest instructors to any liability for action taken by the student in or outside the dojo. This is a legal obligation and all care is taken to avoid injury.  Nonetheless this is a martial art that trains with weapons - safe, hard and edged. Like cricket, football, rock-climbing or any physical pursuit, accidents can happen and it is expected that as an adult, a student be responsible for their actions and choices.The same applies to a parent/guardian granting permission to a child - under the age of 18 - to attend training.

Please click on the icon to download the Training Waiver. 

The Waiver must be handed to the instructor prior to receiving training.

Please also note that ignoring an instructors direction for personal safety or that of their training partner will lead to that student being asked to leave the dojo.




Prospective Students: If you have martial art training gi from another school that is fine to wear until the time that you are ready to commit.  Otherwise please bring a practical track suit pants and thick old top.  It is fine that women wear additional chest protection as men might feel inclined to wear groin protection if they feel this is necessary. Please use common sense. Should you wish to order a training uniform please see the Supplies Page.


Weekend Seminars are held with Guest intructors throughout the year.  It is hoped that students make every effort to attend.

Fees for these are relative to covering airfares hall hire and fee's associated with bringing these guest trainers across from Japan.


Depending on time limitations at venues...1.5  to 2 hrs that includes students helping lay out mats change and leave the dojo or training hall in a tidy condition. Everything done in the hall is training - as it would be in your own home.
