1997-2007, 10 years of Bujinkan History

With world renowned instructors such as: Arnaud Cousergue (France), Dean Rostohar (Croatia), Elias Krzywacki (Sweden/Norway), Ed Martin (USA), Hans Nilsson (Sweden), Keith Porter (UK), Lauri Jokinen (Finland), Lubos Pokorny (Czech Republic), Mariette Van Der Vliet (Holland), Mark O’Brien (USA/Japan), Mats Brickman (Sweden), Mats Hjelm (Sweden), Michael Schjerling (Denmark), Pedro Fleitas (Spain), Peter Jonsson (Sweden), Rikard Sundelius (Sweden), Shawn Gray (Canada/Japan), Sheila Haddad (USA) 15th Dan, Steffen Fröhlich (Germany), Sveneric Bogsäter (Sweden/Holland), Thomas Franzen (Sweden), and many more..

Kaigousuru has become one of Europe’s finest Bujinkan seminars/gatherings. It is with not without sadness, that we announce that this year will mark the end of Kaigousuru. We have decided that after struggling for 10 years to make ends meet and meet all the demands of our participants, have taken its toll on us. We will therefore make this end a glorious one, for everyone attending, as it is as much a celebration as it is an end, for all of us.

This does not however, mark the end for us or our continued participation in Bujinkan activities. It is only the natural cause of things, that it has had its way, and that it now opens up for the beginning of something new. It is harder today for any organizer of Bujinkan events to make ends meet, with so many seminars and good instructors available all over the world.

It has been a great time for us, who have organized and hosted The Kaigousuru event for all of you these last 10 years. We have had a great time, and hope that everyone who have attended have had the same.

We hope that Kaigousuru, as an idea, will continue to live on in your hearts, shaping Bujinkan into what it will be tomorrow.

We will end this by giving all of you a challenge.

Don´t miss out on this last event, the last of 10-years creative and familiar Bujinkan training parties!
April 27th, 28th and 29th, 2007

Register now, there is still space available.

Don’t miss out!

We hope to see you all at Kaigousuru, training and celebrating the end of the beginning with us!

Shizen, the cause of nature and adapting to it


We now have over 100 people signed up for this years Taikai. Many people from different countries, most notably is Czech Republic with 16 people and Finland with 15 people, the rest is spread evenly between 10 other countries.

Unfortunately Sveneric and Mariette can not come this year. Mariette had to remove one of her upper ribs 10 years ago. Over the years her shoulder have dropped down and caused impaired moveability and pain. And now she is going to do surgery to fix it. Both Sveneric and Mariette would have loved to come, but they can’t. We already invited them for next year and they have gladly accepted.

I know some of you will be disappointed but that is life. Shizen is also this years theme, things change naturally and we have to adopt to the changes naturally and do the best we can without looking back of what could have been. It will be a great Taikai regardless. We still have many other good instructors that will come. Maybe we will add more instructors or increase the remaining instructors teaching time.

However this will not affect the overall training quality or amount of training opportunity!
