The Bujinkan is the international organization that oversees the teaching of several ancient samurai and ninja martial traditions. These arts are collectively referred to as Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, or sometimes simply as Ninjutsu.
The Bujinkan is led by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. He is the current Soke, or Grandmaster, of the nine traditions taught by the Bujinkan, including being the 34th generation Grandmaster of Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu.
The nine traditions in the Bujinkan are: Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu, Kukishinden Ryu Happo Bikenjutsu, Gyokko Ryu Koshijutsu, Koto Ryu Koppojutsu, Shinden Fudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu, Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu, Kumogakure Ryu Ninpo, Gyokushin Ryu Ninpo, and Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu.
The techniques taught in the Bujinkan have been battlefield tested for over 800 years. Budo Taijutsu is a complete art and incorporates punches, kicks, joint locks, throws, weapons, and the use of natural elements. These techniques emphasize body movement, angles, distancing, and leverage to effectively control adversaries.
The Phoenix Bujinkan Dojo strives to bring Hatsumi Sensei’s vision for Ninjutsu to the Valley of the Sun and to the rest of Arizona by providing classes, seminars, and frequent trips to the Hombu Dojo in Japan.
