Our Dojo's (training hall) purpose is to teach authentic, thousand-year-old Ninja and Samurai secrets of self-protection, self-development, and awareness to responsible, good-hearted people.

We operate under the direction of Spirit Warriors Dojos, Shidoshi Jay Hardy, Dojocho. All rank testing and certification are done by Shidoshi Hardy and is recognized internationally and recorded with the Grandmaster in Japan.

Because of the very nature of the art of Budo Taijutsu, class size is limited to twenty or less participants at one time, so that everyone receives personal attention. Unlike the chain studios, our goal is not high volume and high profits. Our focus is teaching both male and female what they need to know to defend themselves. Mr. Hardy interviews all interested applicants.




The San Marcos Dojo was founded in April of 1997 by Shidoshi Hardy.  The Spirit Warriors San Marcos Branch Shibu Dojo is nestled in the very heart of this historical town.  Training is held inside The Pointe Dance Studio downtown on the square, across from the old courthouse.  The building is one of the oldest in San Marcos dating back to 1880, giving the Shibu’s training a nostalgic, age-old feeling.    Training is held Tuesday and Thursday evenings in San Marcos and Sundays at the Austin Dojo.  Private lessons are available upon request to both individuals and groups.
