Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Samurai and Ninjutsu
Ninjutsu, sometimes used interchangeably with the modern term ninpō, is the strategy and tactics of unconventional warfare, guerrilla warfare and espionage purportedly practiced by the ninja.
Ninjutsu was developed as a collection of fundamental survivalist techniques in the warring state of feudal Japan. At some point the skills of espionage became known collectively as ninjutsu, and the people who specialized in these tasks were called shinobi no mono
BUJINKAN KOROKU DŌJŌ
武神 館 虎 碌 道場
The Koroku Dojo is an open house of the Bujinkan, training students in the art of Budo Taijutsu. Though this art is dated back to feudal Japan, you will find its skills transcend time through their adaptable applications to remain just as relevant today. Practicing this complete martial art, you will develop awareness of your body and knowledge of your own unique strengths and abilities while learning about close combat and traditional weapons. New students can expect an integrated approach to mental and physical training, as well as a very engaging and positive learning environment with the Koroku Dojo Instructors, led by Shihan Fabio Hernandez.

NINJA NO YUGEN
The Ninja has developed throughout Japanese history over the course of several centuries to the present time. Their combat methods and philosophy were maturing over the years, reaching us at the hands of Sōke Masaaki Hatsumi. With a Cosmology of life that covers many requirements of human configuration, the Bujinkan's teachings have the sacred breath from the mystery world of the warriors of Japan.
Ninja no Yugen is a book that seeks to bring the reader closer to understand the subtle philosophy of these warriors which, beyond the physical practice of the martial art itself, could aid people in their day-to-day activities. The teachings of the Ninja Master, Sōke Masaaki Hatsumi, have been shared with the author for about three decades. With all his heart and mind, Christian Petroccello conveys in this work many of the small and ethereal things that Ninjutsu allowed him to discover.
