We are a family run Martial Art that teach children the value of Manners, Discipline and Respect. We teach adults Awareness, Confidence and Self Defence for all situations. We are a very old Martial Art and continue to teach the old ways. Children must learn how to escape from danger and know the difference between right and wrong. A clever Martial Artist does not need to fight but knows how to defend themselves when there is no other option.
The Martial Art we teach is called Genbukan Martial Arts and our dojo name is Sanzen Genbukan Dojo.
We now train at BT Fitness, a location just on the edge of town with plenty of free parking. (please see location below). We have a relaxed atmosphere but are dedicated to imparting knowledge and good manners while learning self defence with fun and games in a traditional environment
Our adult classes are structured exactly the same as our head dojo in Japan (Honbu) and teach in the traditional Japanese manner. You do not have to be big, strong or very fit to start Martial Arts you just have to walk in the door
Traditional Martial Arts are renowned for their health benefits. Fitness will develop over time in a very positive way. What is not so well known is the mental health benefits. When you are learning something that has depth and enjoying yourself at the same time the benefits to mental health are enormous. You are physically and mentally moving all the time. Challenging the body and the mind in a positive environment
We remain true to our traditions and train directly under world renowned Ninpo Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura

At the Shogun Martial Arts training centre in Navan we teach Genbukan Ninpo along with traditional Japanese Jujutsu which itself is a complete Martial Art combining the oldest forms of Koryu Karate as well as weapons and every aspect of unarmed combat. The aim of traditional Martial Arts is to avoid conflict and win without fighting and for that reason the highest level unarmed techniques are trained and mastered both in the body and the mind. Children do not learn how to fight but how not to fight while at the same time capable of defending themselves with confidence and skill through awareness and discipline
Chief Instructor Martin O’Raghaillaigh holds the rank of 6th dan in Ninpo and 6th dan Jujutsu. He is a regular guest instructor at traditional Martial Arts clubs throughout the country. He is one of the rare Martial Artists in the west that holds authentic Japanese titles in traditional Japanese Jujutsu as well as other schools of Martial Arts. He is a personal student of renowned Ninpo grandmaster Shoto Tanemura.
