Bujinkan Dai Shihan


21st December 2022

Seventh newsletter. We did the Christmas Seminar last week, I'd like to thank all 13 people from three Stockholm Dojo's and one guy from U.K. attending.

I finished editing the Takagiyoshin-ryu Jutaijutsu video and uploaded it to the servers. The video is around 93 minutes on 9 files (one for each level). All 85 techniques is demonstrated from different angles. It is available at budoshop.se for $29.99.

I fixed the website recently. I see that I had over 22,000 unique visitors, but the last month I had 8,500 visitors. It is probably because the web site is working much faster now.




Please help me make this a better resource for everyone practicing the Bujinkan Martial Arts. Contribute and help grow this newsletter by sending me news, seminar advertisements.

Send me anything you think might be of interest to all of us Bujinkan practitioners to [email protected]
But please no links to FB or sites that requires a log in (I am not on FB!).


I've had the BUJINKAN.TV domain for a while now but didn't know what to do with it.

I have uploaded all eight techniques in Kihon Happo to BUJINKAN.TV

Each video is shown as I'm explaining it in my Yudansha Book. Each technique also has two Ura Waza and Henka.

I have only written one public book, and it is the YUDANSHA book. I got very good feedback from many prominent Bujinkan teachers including Hatsumi Soke. The book covers all the Taijutsu techniques I think every 5'th Dan should know by heart.

The book is only available from Lulu!

Below is two pages from the book as an example. It is available in a few different formats and bindings.

3 Tips for 大外掛 Ōsoto Gake You Should Start Using Now

Tonight in my class we studied 夢落 yume otoshi. The last time I did this in Japan, Hatsumi Sensei gave us some insights that I want to share with you. He began by telling us 空間で嚮導 Kūkan de kyōdō, or lead the opponent in the kukan.

Jūjiro Or The Indirect Fight

In the Kukishin ryū, there is one central concept that many don’t know, and it is called “Jūjiro”. With the pandemic, everyone experiences difficult times, and it seems that many of us should be reminded of some basic concepts. Jūjiro is one of them.

We collected nearly 2000 articles and essays from the most well known Instructors of the Bujinkan Dojo since 2005.
