The SNU Mission

Realizing that the key to disseminating the pure Budo Taijutsu was the development of a formalized curriculum, SNU is dedicated to organizing all the techniques in the most logical sequence based on their simplicity and usefulness for self-defense.

What our students say about SNU

Edward Aponte is very dedicated to the art Ninjutsu. My 5 year old son LOVES his one on one sessions. I am also taking lessons but am on the yoga/meditation side and it’s AMAZING! The society we live in can cause so much stress and these sessions help to find the core to my issues, identify them, breath through them, journal them, work through them, and let them go.
Jamie Kjelstrom
I've taken martial arts in the past and I get the feeling that you're just a cog in the machine. But with certified ninja club you get one on one time With Sensei Aponte. Sensei is knowledgeable, and a real mentor. Meditation class is so much fun. Once again very knowledgeable and relaxing. I highly recommend not because I attend but because I feel you learn so much more when you receive one on one instruction. Sensei Aponte keeps tradition alive and I like that. 5 star for sure.
