How To Train In Traditional Martial Arts For Modern Self-Defense | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu


In this video I teach how to train in traditional martial arts and how to make it work for the modern world of self-defense.  There are so many so called “Ninjutsu” or “Bujutsu” schools of classical martial arts that say (claim) that they are teaching methods of martial arts that fit in the modern day, when the facts are, they are not.  They are lying to make money, and they know it.

In the video you will hear me talk about “henka”. Yes many classical dojo / koryu schools of budo/ninpo do henka.  The difference is that their henka is still set within the 15th century.  They are not applying the principals, strategies and philosophies of the kata (that they claim to be a master of) in the modern world of self defense.  Instead of mastering the arts that they claim to be dedicated too, they study “koryu” and then do modern martial arts such as Krav Maga or Systema for the “Self-Defense”.  To all of “1st degree masters” that do this: You should be embarrassed of yourself and you should apologize to the warrior arts that you claim to be so dedicated to.

The facts are, there is no martial art that is better than another.  They were all made for different reasons at different times in history.  The best thing to do is fine a martial art that like you (regardless of what it is), find a master that will teach you, and dedicate yourself to the mastery of that art.

This lesson is directly for the practitioners of the ancient Japanese koryu martial arts of the ninja and samurai, such as ninjutsu (ninpo) and bujutsu (budo).
