Taijutsu - 体術

Taijutsu (体術) translated as 'body methods' refers to multiple martial systems that focus on using the body for combat and non-combat activities. Taijutsu is a sub-domain of Budou (武道) or 'the way of war'. In the Bujinkan, taijutsu refers mainly (but not strictly) to martial arts of the Samurai. Taijutsu also refers to weapons as an extension of the body. The Bujinkan methodology, more so than any other martial arts organisation, reinforces the link between body and weapon to make them one in combat and non-combat applications.

Three schools of the Bujinkan can be considered mainly as taijutsu schools include Gyokko Ryuu (Jade Tiger School), Kukishin Ryuu (Nine Fierce Gods School) and Gikan Ryuu (Virtues Paragon School). These schools stem from or were founded by Samurai with objectives furthering stewardship, rule and management of the land. 

Note: Taijutsu (体術) 'Body Methods' should not be confused with Taijutsu (體術) 'Classical Martial Arts', which is found in Bujinkan Budou Taijutsu (武神館武道體術). Taijutsu (體術) or classical methods/arts covers all schools of the Bujinkan, while Taijutsu (体術) refers to a sub-domain of systems within schools. Be careful when understanding these terms and rely on the context of the conversation or explanation.
