    ninja mindset & tactics

    A lot of confusion exists around the "Ninja". Were they real? Who were they? Did they have secret abilities? Historically the shinobi no mono ('ninja') exploited ambiguity about who they were and what they did. This was part of their survival strategy.

    Quietness, secrecy, single minded determination, adaptation, stoicism and great technical skill were what made them a formidable force. This is what you will learn at Deenway Dojo in the context of survival and also in overcoming obstacles in life in order to achieve your highest aspirations.

    traditional MARTIAL ARTS

    Discover the calming and spiritual effects of Archery-an art as old as man himself. Explore traditional forms of swordsmanship using wooden bokken, staffs and other weapons. Experiment with tactical and strategic approaches of the samurai and other warriors of old in armed and unarmed combat. Reflect on the teachings of great masters like Musashi Miyamoto and others from Japanese and non-Japanese traditions. In our approach to the study of traditional martial arts we seek to explore the essence of the meaning of budo as understood in our particular school's approach at Deenway Dojo.

    Nourishing the soul, connecting to the divine

    islamic spirituality

    "You think you are a small thing, but within you is the entire universe and all that it contains." 

    These words attributed to the great sunni scholar, jurist and ascetic, Imam Shafi' (d. 820 CE) urge us to reflect on the majesty and beauty of the creation around us and within us.

    In our exploration of spirituality we learn to nourish our soul, cultivate love and gratitude for the Divine and become a force for good in the Universe. All this comes from the essence of Islamic teachings, transmitted from teacher to student, from men and women from the time of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to this very day. It is also the essence of the message of the Holy Qur'an.
