  • 天略の巻 TEN RYAKU NO MAKI (The scroll of Heaven)
    Here we learn to move the body naturally and effectively. Essentially how to become a good Uke (receiver of techniques). When Hatsumi Soke’s own teacher Takamatsu Sensei started training over 120 years ago as a young boy he was thrown around the Dojo by the seniors for a year before he was taught any techniques. This gave him a good foundation for the next level.

About the Author: Mats have been training Bujinkan Budo-taijutsu since the early 1980’s. He travelled all around the world to train and teach Bujinkan Budo-taijutsu. http://YudanshaBook.com

DVD’s are dead


Yes DVD’s are dead, it happened in October, no DVD orders in two months.
So we have closed the DVD store and we will only supply Download Movies from now on.
We are sorry for this, if you still want DVD’s you can download the movie and make your own DVD.

Important if you’re ordering DVD’s from now on

dvd_caseShipping costs is getting higher, we’re not selling as much DVD’s as before, more and more people are happy with the download videos. We are also running out of DVD cases, and we buy them in bulk and they take up office space.

So instead of raising DVD or shipping costs we’re gonna start delivering the DVD’s without the plastic case from now on. When order you will get the DVD and a print out of the cover, but no plastic case.

I guess most of you who buy DVD’s have some system where you store the DVD’s to save space without the plastic cover anyway. If you want a plastic cover you can find it every where, search for “DVD case”.

Bushinden Kai 武神伝会 is ”A Gathering to honour the teachings of the Warrior Gods.” Respecting Souke, The Shihan, and our Martial Ancestors for their transmission of the Nine Traditions of the Bujinkan.

Budo is not about instruction. It is about learning to teach yourself. This is the first thing I want people who attend the Bushinden Kai to understand. We are all on our own Shugyo. We must take responsibility for ourselves, while developing the heart and compassion of the Bujinkan Bugeisha.
