What is the Bujinkan?

The Bujinkan means Hall of the Divine Warrior which was founded by Soke Misaaki Hatsumi as a way to integrate the nine different schools passed down to him from his teacher Toshitsugu Takamatsu.

The focus is on traditional warrior arts that have not been watered down to be made into a sport, and incorporates traditional Japanese weapons as well.

Some of the techniques are similar to judo, jujutsu, kendo, and aikido, because all of those arts are based on traditional warrior arts of Japan.

Three of the schools of the Bujinkan are ninjutsu schools, which is how the Bujinkan was first introduced to the Western world, however we do not train people to be assassins or spys.
