Welcome to the World of Progressive Martial Arts

The South African Ninjitsu Federation is a South African based Ninjitsu Ryu that teaches the principles of Koga Ryu Ninjitsu in South Africa. Ninjitsu was created over many years, decades, and centuries to address a defensive need for the environment of that time.

With this in mind, the South African Ninjitsu Federation has structured its knowledge base and its teaching principles to cater for the environment of today. In line with this viewpoint, the South African Ninjitsu Federation can be considered to be a dynamic martial art based on the principles of Koga Ryu Ninjitsu, rather then being considered as a traditional martial art.
