All martial arts is as difficult at the trainer / since makes them. From experience with Ninjitsu, I found it very easy to use. The secret is practice, practice and practice.
I had to use it twice. Once I had to defend myself against 4 men. To my surprise,, I used all the techniques without thinking what I was doing. Keep in mind I only weight at the time. The smallest of the 4 guys weighed about 85 kg.
Based on this, I believe it is a very good and easy to adapt to for any age group.
Unfortunately our trainer moved to Hong Kong to further his studies, and I lost contact. If you do come across a school, please let me know.
