Please (let us begin)

The Bujinkan was founded by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, the Grandmaster of nine different schools, or ryu, of Ninpo and Budo. These ryu trace their roots back over 1000 years to a remote mountainous region of Japan named Iga. The practitioners had many different names such as Kusa, Rappa and Ninja. Their unconventional skills at scouting, spying and commando assault were used by many political leaders and generals in the struggle to unify Japan over 500 years ago.

Today the training is very different. We no longer are preparing to go to war; instead we can cultivate the development of a true warrior heart using the same techniques and skills forged over hundreds of years of survival and endurance. At the foundation of our martial art is Taijutsu, unarmed fighting. Taijutsu is the use of whole body movement and flexibility inside the forms and techniques from the past. It is a combination of ground hitting skills, rolling and leaping with striking and grappling forms. Advanced Black Belt level classes are taught building on these fundamental skills by introducing the practitioner to a wide range of combat experiences such as multiple attackers and traditional Japanese battle field weapons (Katana, Yari, Naginata, etc).

The Arizona Bujinkan Ninpo & Budo Kai has been training in Tempe, Arizona for over thirty-five years. Since 1984, the Arizona Bujinkan Ninpo & Budo Kai has been dedicated to promoting the teachings of the founder of the Bujinkan, Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. Hatsumi Sensei is the 34th generation inheritor of Togakure Ryu and eight other historical Japanese Budo and Ninja Arts. The instructors make frequent yearly trips to Japan to stay current with Hatsumi Sensei’s teachings.

**COVID-19 Social Distancing Notice**

With the current need to maintain distance to keep ourselves and our buyu safe, we have transitioned to some online content to keep our training fresh. Please see our YouTube Channel for the latest videos!


Every year Soke Masaaki Hatsumi chooses a theme, or a set of themes, on which to focus our attention. Throughout the year we examine the body movement, techniques and weapons the theme emphasizes while reinforcing the basic skills of rolling, falling, kamae (balanced stances) and grappling.

In Tempe, fundamentals classes are offered regularly on Monday night at 7:00 PM; this is an introductory class where we will systematically explore the intersection of history, anatomy, and the laws of physics with taijutsu. Tuesday classes typically examine ryu specific waza at an intermediate level. (Invitation only) Thursday nights delve into advanced subjects.

Advanced training and Black Belt Workshops are also held on a regular basis.

Please contact us for location information and parking suggestions.

Instructor

師範 : Shihan

Peter Crocoll has well over 40 years of active training experiences in martial arts. He has exclusively trained in the Bujinkan since 1982. Traveling frequently to Japan to stay current with the teachings of Dr. Hatsumi and his senior instructors, Peter is presently at the Ku level of Judan and has been presented a Daishihan by Hatsumi Soke. Private classes and seminars are available, please inquire for rates, details and scheduling.

I believe in the power of the individual to learn and grow, overcoming the difficult obstacles and challenges faced in a lifetime. I believe that Bujinkan Ninpo and Budo Taijutsu provide the necessary tools and skills to meet the challenges and to prevail against the obstacles while discovering ways of becoming masters of our own destinies and to serve as guides for succeeding generations to understand the value of a true Martial Art.
