Knowledge & Background

takamatsuBujinkan Budo Taijutsu by grandmaster Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi is a martial art based on the tradition of nine schools. Hatsumi inherited the title of grandmaster of all nine schools from his teacher Toshitsugu Takamatsu. Since it is hardly possible to learn all nine schools separately, Hatsum decided to teach them as a whole. In order to honour his teacher Takamatsu he called this school Bujinkan – The Temple of the Devine Warrior.

Today Bujinkan is a vivid conjunction of tradition and modernity. By being limitless this system demands of his practitioners a permanent development – in training as well as in daily life.
