Question Bujinkan ninjitsu or Wing tsun

I have recently come into contact with 2 separate styles of martial arts. I know I have recently made a poll about this but being the indecisive bastard that I am, I like to get a 2nd opinion on things like this :P

I am a black belt in Arnis/Escrima. One thing I love about this style is that because it is so versatile, it allows the practitioner to cross train in other styles after a while. I have already dabbled in boxing, kickboxing and shaolin kung fu. I have recently experimenting by training in Bujinkan ninjitsu and will soon be taking part in a Wing tsun class. Luckily all the classes are free for the first few lessons, so I will be getting a good taste of each system. Here are some clips for visual aid.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG_bAzalHoQ (This is the brand of escrima I trained in in Ireland. I'm the Jolly green giant in this one)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D03yhB_6r-0 (Bujinkan ninjitsu with some capoera..Sadly the only video that actually demonstrates some techniques)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2ZNxCfw7vI (Wing Tsun with some escrima implemented)


Many of my senior peers have gone into Wing tsun because of the similarities in footwork and rapid strikes. I've seen that Bujinkan offers the same versatility that escrima does in joint manipulation and weaponry . It also throws some all around skills in the mix which isn't found in the wing tsun.


Help me fighttips. Your my only hope

perhaps i can help because my sifu is a master at wing chun and eskrima and at my gym we train in both i focus mainly on wing chun but i think eskrima goes extremely well with it so it would effectively extend your hand to hand combat and joint manipulation as well as using the eskrima sticks. but ninjitsu is just awesome in my opinion but its your decision.

That doesn't really help just calling an art gay. Wouldn't do good if I called boxing just a knuckle head's art. Try and show a bit of respect ok?:P If you do have a problem with an art, just give your reasons, like..I don't know ''The legwork in the Ninjitsu is rather awkward and I wouldn't use that in a real fight''

It does, hence why so many tend to cross train between the 2.

I fully agree with you there, hence the tough decision. I'll find out how both clubs are and go with the one I enjoy more. I have to admit though. I do feel like my empty hand skills are rather lacking compared to the sticks...

Maybe WT is a better idea, to improve your empty hand game.

It's technically NOT ninjutsu, since ninjutsu is like the Spec Ops of samurai. It's just old school jujutsu, man.

If you dig old school martial arts, look no further. But the overall quality of Bujinkan taijutsu varies HEAVILY. If it's your thing, find a good dojo. (If you're wondering, yes, my taijutsu training was Bujinkan)


Also, forgive the double posting. Computer is being wack.
