The Bujinkan Martial Arts were developed by the legendary ninja and samurai of Japan, The Bujinkan continues on in the 21st Century under the guidance of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, thirty-fourth Grandmaster of Togakure Ryu Ninpo.
The International Bujinkan Dojo is led by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, who lives and trains in Noda City, Japan. He actively teaches at the Budokan in Tokyo and at the Bujinkan Hombu Dojo in Noda. Hatsumi Sensei is recognized as one of the premiere martial artists of today and is well known throughout the world.
Hatsumi Sensei’s organization is called “Bujinkan Dojo” (The Divine Warrior God’s Place for Training). The name of our style is now generally known as “Budo Taijutsu.” Budo Taijutsu is a traditional Japanese kobudo martial art with a history that spans well over a thousand years.
