University: Learn Bujinkan, Ninjutsu

“THIS  COURSE COVERS IT ALL…. from the Old Days training of Ninpo Taijutsu, Ninjutsu, Togakure Teachings, Ten Chi Jin… to Juppo Sessho to the more modern Budo Taijutsu. From the Art of Awareness to Combat Ninjutsu.”

“DaiShihan Richard Van Donk has codified over 35 years of Bujinkan study into a University Course that gives you the full spectrum of Hatsumi Bujinkan teachings from the Art of Awareness to Combat Ninjutsu/Budo Taijutsu, including teaching you how to be a great instructor.”

Bushindo University: Authentic Bujinkan Ninjutsu Training

This Ninjutsu BlackBelt Home Study Distance Learning Course is the world’s Authentic Original Ninjutsu Training Course. Many of the world’s Ninjutsu Masters started with this very course and Dai Shihan Richard Van Donk or added it to their studies. Several have even tried to make their own courses, but they do not come close to having the complete Ninjutsu system available from Bushindo University on the Ninja Dojo Portal. Invest your time in learning something like this if you would rather be a member of an authentic Japan Certified system that has a complete Ninjutsu Masters Course like the (IBDA) International Bujinkan Dojo Association does.

Yes, you really do officially join Hatsumi’s real Bujinkan organization with your IBDA (International Bujinkan Dojo Association) membership card and courses.
