Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is a martial art that integrates the curricula of nine classical Japanese martial art systems. Training includes both armed and unarmed techniques covering a wide variety of combative scenarios. Classes are open to both beginner and advanced adult students alike and are conducted in a friendly and supportive atmosphere where strong balance and dynamic, fluid body movement are emphasized over speed and power.
Todd Tumaneng started training in Judo as a kid at the Buddhist Temple of Chicago. This experience was the start of a deep fascination with Japanese martial arts and culture, which eventually led to his introduction to the art of Budo Taijutsu in 1993. While pursuing a degree in Japanese and East Asian studies at North Central College, he participated in a student exchange at Kanda University of International Studies where he was able to continue his training with master instructor Isamu Shiraishi. Todd lived and trained in Japan for about 9 ½ years until his return to Chicago in 2012. He currently teaches Budo Taijutsu classes at the Japanese Culture Center in Arlington Heights, IL.
