Simply put we are
dedicated to creating teachers, (called Shidoshi's in
the Bujinkan Ninjutsu system of Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi.
We have established over the last 20+ years what we feel
is the most comprehensive Ninjutsu study program available
to the general public anywhere in the world. The International
Bujinkan Dojo Association (aka American Bujinkan Dojo)
and Bushindo Martial Arts University is the One Stop Shop
for Authentic Ninjutsu Information, no one offers more
information to the general public than we do. In offering
our students a direct lineage to Soke Masaaki Hatsumi
in Japan we have become the premier official Hatsumi (Quest
Co. Ltd) video distributor outside of Japan. We secured
English subtitles on Soke's videos so that you can better
understand what he is teaching and now the conversion
to DVD is in progress. We also secured distributors for
his Japanese and English book titles and hired translators
of his Japanese books (both in and out of print). We established
a structured step- by- step Ninjutsu learning and ranking
system all the way to 10th dan for interested parties.
We have a Ninjutsu forum where students can help each
other learn and find training partners. We have a Shidoshi
training program and a how to open and run a successful
dojo for our affiliated IBDA members. Every licensed teacher
in Ninjutsu must be certified by Grandmaster Hatsumi first
as a Shidoshi-ho (junior licensed instructor under a Shidoshi)
and then as a Shidoshi (fully licensed teacher of the
warrior ways of Enlightnement-5th degree rank is required).
We now have many affiliated training groups and Branch
dojo's and Bujinkan friends (Buyu) all over the world.
Hundreds of our students are now Shidoshi (5th dan or
above) and a many are Judan (10th degree level). We are
proud of that success as it says we are doing many things
