Ninjitsu.

Taijutsu is a form of traditional Japanese unarmed combat common to a plethora of arts utilized throughout mainland Japan's history. Taijutsu is a generic term that is not particular to one specific school. It is often used in martial arts such as ninjutsu and aikido to specifically distinguish unarmed combat techniques from armed ones.

Taijutsu usually consists of three categories of moves:

taihenjutsu: evasion, postures, ukemi (falling safely), and kaiten (pivoting).
dakentaijutsu: striking patterns, fist formations, and conditioning.
jutaijutsu: throws, joint locks, pins, and throwing techniques.

Taihenjutsu is a system of movement and positioning that allows the user to adapt to his or her environment through a series of postures and skills primarily relying on dexterity, coordination, agility, and bone alignment. Taihenjutsu translates roughly to "Body changing skill," and is utilized by various Ryus and systems throughout martial arts.

Taihenjutsu typically depends on skills that require the user to have a fair degree of spatial awareness as well as kinetic awareness due to the constant movement and placement via pinpointed pre-cognition based on muscle memory. Because of this, highly developed taihenjutsu specialists typically develop a high degree of awareness in their environment and bodies which allows them to escape injury from strikes, throws, pins, etc.

It includes:

Ukemi – recover from throws, locks, strikes, etc.
acrobatics – tumbling, body manipulation while aerial, balancing, etc.
Evasion – Muto Dori, slipping, parkour, etc.
Leaping
kamae

Dakentaijutsu is the striking component of taijutsu

Jutaijutsu is a common martial art term in ninjutsu ("junaan", in fact, means "flexible", while "tai" means "body" and "jutsu" means "art" or "skill").

Ukemi

[U]Zenpo Kaiten
- a forward roll from the leading foot's shoulder to the hip on the opposite side.
Mae ukemi - a forward breakfall. This can be in the form of a hard slapping breakfall or more of a forward roll like motion. There are subtleties in the different types of forward roll but the principle is that when being thrown forwards the uke (person being thrown) is able to roll out of danger in preference to sustaining an injury.
Ushiro ukemi - a backwards roll or fall.
Yoko ukemi - a sideways fall.
Tobi ukemi - more of a forward flip than a roll, a cross between yoko (landing) and mae ukemi (initiation), often used in response to wrist throws.


Zenpo Kaiten Ukemi (Front Roll Ukemi)

Step forward with the outside leg, i.e. the leg which is further away from the Nage. If, for example, the right leg is the outside leg, extend the right arm forward while pointing its fingers inward and curve the right arm. Then make the outside of the curved arm touch the mat smoothly and roll your entire body forward through, in order, the right shoulder, the curved back, and the left hip.
To complete the roll and rise to standing position, fold the left knee and position the right knee in a bent but upright position. Upon arriving at this one knee kneeling position, by using the momentum of the rolling, put your weight on the ball of the right foot and do Tenkan at the same time standing up and positioning yourself at Migi Hanmi to prepare for the next move. Complete the movement by taking a sufficient Ma-Ai which prepares for the next move of the opponent. Therefore, when one practices this Zenpo Kaiten movement the goal should be to make it low and far (i.e. lower in height and further in distance).
 
Mae Ukemi
Step forward with your right foot. Keep your foot straight and pointed forward. Balance your body weight evenly on both feet.
Lower your left knee to the floor. Angle your leg to cross behind your right foot. Keep 2 to 3 feet between your feet for balance.
Place your fingertips on the floor inside your legs. Use the unbendable arm technique when you do a Mae Ukemi to keep the roll straight.
Pull your left arm down to the floor beside your right arm. Your palm faces out and your fingers are closed.
Stand up with your hands still touching the floor and your feet in the same position.
Lean into your right arm. Tuck your head under and roll forward. The Aikido Mae Ukemi includes 2 or 3 full rotations.
Land with your right foot flat on the ground and with your left knee bent in the same position as in Step 3. Your hands need to be in the same positions as in Steps 4 and 5.

Ushiro ukemi
Kneel on one knee. Keep your back leg angled on the ground.
Keep your toes flexed rather than pressed against the mat. As the ushiro ukemi begins, your foot will naturally flatten against the ground.
Place your hands beside your thighs. Roll backward by sitting down on your back leg and throwing your front leg back over your head. As you fall backward, roll over your left shoulder.
Land on your back leg and finish the ushiro ukemi in Aikido martial arts by kneeling again on one knee.
 
 
Acrobatics
This is pretty much Ukemi.
Ok, Start training your balance:
Do squats and jumping squats. The jump-squats will train the small stabilizing muscles in your knees which makes it much easier to balance, allows more power to transfer through your kicks, and will also train your legs for explosive power.

Just keep practising your Ukemi, and tumbling, Its hard to say, What to do here, Start learning an art like Gymnastics.
 
Evasion
This is All parkour so here it is:
Parkour Roll
Your hands should be out infront of you pulling you into this movement. It helps to form a diamond shape with the hands. Place the forearm that corresponds with the shoulder you are most comfortable rolling with on the ground. (Picture 1)
Upon impact you should move your gaze down to your waist line and tuck your chin in.
Land on the balls of your feet. If your heels fall back on the ground - the roll is useless. You must maintain forward momentum for the roll to have any purpose.
Pull your shoulder forward with your hands. At the same time push off from your toes.
Roll onto your shoulder in a diagonal motion. Keep your legs tucked, so that your body is tense and strong.
Now from your shoulder roll onto the muscley surface of your gluteus maximus. If you roll onto your hip or the side of your pelvis, you'll probably end up bruising yourself.
Roll up on to one knee, and use the continuing momentum to come up on both feet. This last position will vary from person to person.


Cat Leap
To execute a cat leap, run at the top of a wall, then jump and grab it with your hands, while extending your legs partially in front of you. Hold on to the wall, and absorb impact with your legs, potentially bending your knees. The cat leap has been completed. You may either drop down, jump to another wall, or pop on top or over current wall.

Dash Vault
Run at a wall at a nice steady pace. As you approach, your weight will fall backwards.
At the same time kick up one leg to clear the height of the wall. The trailing leg will then be powered through.
Place your hands on either side of the legs and to keep the momentum going with a push away from the wall.
The momentum here will fire you over the wall. While in the air your bodyweight will be brought forward to prepare for landing.
With your bodyweight moving forward, you should begin to straighten up and get your feet ready for a nice landing.

Landing
Landing: Bending the knees when toes make contact with ground (never land flat footed; always land on toes and ball of your foot).
NOTE: DO NOT land with your feet (exaggeratedly) stretched! This "technique", as often seen in videos, might slightly (if at all) reduce strain on the vertebral column on impact, but significantly increases the risk of ankle fracture. This is due to the specific anatomy of the ankle joint. Stability of the lower ankle joint is notably decreased in the plantarflexed condition (i.e. when the foot is "stretched") increasing the risk of severe injuries. This is also the reason why most people twist their ankle when walking/running downhill.

Tic Tac
Take in a breathe through your nose as you take a stride into this motion. Bring one leg up to the surface you are performing the tic tac off of. Think of this first step as pushing off of the apparatus rather than kicking off.
Let out a sharp and powerful breath through the mouth (it helps to make a "su" or "shu" sound to ensure that the breath comes from the abdomen) as you pounce off of the object. Twist your body out and upwards. Throw your arms in the direction you'd like to land and let your eyes guide you from there.

Diving Roll
1. approach your desired object at a steady pace(if jumping over an object)

2. push off of your strongest foot first and carefully arch your body using your stomach muscles

3. place you hands out in front of you being careful to tuck your head into your chest

4. then as you roll make sure you follow the roll from your head down your back and back up onto your feet. (if diving from a higher object) follow steps 1 to 2 however place your hands out slightly later make sure to absorb the shock onto your arms by timing the start of your roll correctly and making sure your arms do not remain straight and locked for more than a split second. Making sure that you roll correctly is the key to avoiding impact damage.

Stamnia Build
-A Way to build stamnia which will greatly help in spars and fights is to either walk on a treadmill or just regular walking. First start out just walking normaly for about 15-20 Mins. After walking start to pick up the pace of your walking to maybe a sorta Jog and do this for about 15-20 Mins also. After that start to run but not as fast as you can. Run for a General 10 Mins. After running go back to a slow/Normal Pace walking you will want to walk for about 25 Mins. After the 25 Mins have passed you will want to then sprint/Run as fast as you can for about 5-10 Mins. Minimum is 5 and the maxiumum is 10. Once finishing this do not sit down to take a break unless your dont training for the mean while. This should help build stamnia and also make you stronger in the legs.

Now for speed Excersises

Speed Secret 1: Soft Eye
Straight, erect posture creats good vision and focus. Look directly over your opponent's shoulders. Continue to star past his body at any fixed object. This unique visual state is soft eye. The background will become almost blurred. Your Opponent's image will seem to project toward you. He will be the only thing you see clearly, allowing you to act or react quickly. This full body viewing allows you to detect the intions of your opponent, from head to toe in one glance. Implementation of this procedure is a matter of intent. Use it whenerv you choose there is no adverse effect to your eyesight. Two exercises can help you quickly increase your eye speed and strength for enhanced perception.

Speed Exercise 1: Pencil Pushups
Some people's eyes do not coverge properly when they're doing close work. To see if that is a problem for you, hold a pencil at arm's length. Start moving it toward your eyes. stop when you see two pencils if your hand is about seven inchs from your face then you have convergence insufficiency. To correct the problem, do the exercise again. This time, attempt to see just one pencil. Move the pencil closer, then away. Keep trying to focus as the pencil moves in and out. Within a week of practiceing this for five minutes each day, You will develop the ability to view a single pencil from a position two inches from your eye. Fast reaction starts with your ability to see the incoming teachnique clearly. This exercise will help you make this determination even when the punchs and kicks are close to your face.

Speed Exercise 2: Eye Sprinting
Place a magazine about ten feet away from where you are standing. Next, hold another magazine at your normal reading distance, usually about twelve to fourteen inches away from your nose. Train your eyes on the closest magazine. Now look at the periodical ten feet away. Refocus your eyes as they jump from magazine to magazine. Do this for five minutes a day and you will develop the ability to focus more quickly on objects far and near. Practicing allows you to detect incoming movements from your opponent more clearly.

Speed Exercise 3: Paper Chase
Tear a piece of paper into small squares. Have a partner hold them at your shoulder height. Reach out to grab the bits of paper as your partner tries to pull them away, challenging your ability to catch one. Continue to practice this until you can grab most of the papers before your partner can move them out of reach.

Speed Exercise 4: Blow for Blow
Target practice using sound as stimulus is a great way to increase your speed. Have a training partner hold a target bag. With a whistle in his mouth he can blow to indicate a time for you to strike the bag. With each sound, try to hit the bag as quickly as you can. Challenge yourself; continue the exercise at an ever-increaseing pace, varying the strikes and kicks, Have your training partner move around the floor to increase the challenge. Compare your reaction times as the exercise continues. You will notice your response time decreasing as you practice.

Speed Exercise 5: Is anybody out there?
Shadowboxing is a great method for building speed. Picture an opponent standing in front of you and trying to hit you. Use your imagination to try to anticipate the moves of your invisible adversary. Stamnia and endurance build this practice, allowing you to keep your speed consistent through an acctual match. By practicing without fear and injury, you can experiment with fast defensive and offensive moves against your invisible opponent.
