Bujinkan Gaman Dojo

Discover How Ancient and Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Can Impact Your Daily Life

As a private noncompetitive martial arts school, the Bujinkan Gaman Dojo is dedicated to functional and traditional philosophies. Our team works with members to develop and enhance skills that enrich the modern lifestyle.


With a student base located throughout the Greater Cleveland Metro area, we have recently relocated to an easily accessible studio in Lakewood, Ohio.

Private Lessons

Private lessons and personal training session are both available upon request, but may not overlap the regularly scheduled adult classes. Please contact us as far ahead of time as possible so that we may better accommodate your schedule with ours.

Adult Classes

Classes with our instructors are currently offered four times a week. Topics primarily vary from unarmed techniques, weapons work, and body mechanics improvement exercises. All new students must complete a two page application and briefly meet with either instructor before attending or sitting in on their first class.
