Unlike most Martial Arts training at the Temple Bujinkan Dojo, Taijutsu is conducted in a friendly and noncompetitive atmosphere.

Temple Parks & Recreation works diligently to provide citizens with clean, attractive, and well maintained areas. Due to the large number of parks in Temple, it is difficult to keep each park in top condition at all times. We are very thankful for all the help from our wonderful community members and organizations that help us maintain and enhance our parks! Adopt-A-Park groups help inform parks staff of issues or wants for their park and also organize park work days, clean up, plant trees and plants, and complete other projects to help maintain or enhance their parks.
