Face it Budo Taijutsu is Not easy to define as a martial art. Some people really get it and yet others struggle in learning it.
One reason is that it is hard to define - much less structure into a body of study. It is an art that needs to be interactively practiced with someone that is beyond your own current knowledge level. It is really a study of concepts, principles and ideas to use in combat. Like exlporing the proper distance, controlling the space (kukan), take your opponent off balance, strike witout being seen, etc. (the course has over 100 principles). Even Soke Hatsumi does not teach a formal way but yet uniquely demonstates his concepts and principles to any form. He demonstrates simple but yet complex relationships of budo.
This course was created to help ALL Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu practitioners understand all the dynamic relationships of the Bujinkan art. This art has never been defined the way it is in this Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu Course. For many students it has been difficult to determine what they are really studying and what is important in that study. One reason is that the training draws from 9 different schools and overlaps in it's concepts in every class. The other is that while concepts are explored they have not been defined all in one place leaving the student to determine for themselves what is useful in the training. This has it's pros and it's cons. Many students and instructors have become confused. AN OVERVIEW TEACHING ON WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSONS AND CONCEPTS IN LEARNING THE ART.
Every year when I plan our annual Tai Kai event I chose a very special special theme for the training. When I sat down to think about it I had this great brainstorm that lasted for several hours - I mean I literally could not stop writing for almost 3 hours!
My brainstorm was triggered by asking myself this question:
“What are all the most important lessons of Budo Taijutsu ever taught to me by Soke Hatsumi over the last 25+ years?”
This really is a great question to ask yourself at any time about the art you study. And when you have studied an art for over 30 years and have made over 50 trips to Japan to train with Soke Hatsumi and other Shihan this is a super question!
But I don't want to get off track here - most important to me were all the answers I got to that question and the method by which I got them.
They literally came flying into my brain and at first I wrote them down as bullet points - but then as I went back over the bullet points I received specific exercises on how to share these points with you.
Then I codified all the lessons into a progression of importance to detail it all out for anyone to learn them.
WOW! But I didn't stop there. I then contacted my senior instructors and asked them to write out their 10 top most important insights on this question. From those answers I asked some of them to work a few months on a lesson plan and come share it at the event. Helping Shidoshi Richard Van Donk (15th Dan) in share their master Budo Taijutsu principles in this course with their years of experience are Shihan’s Dan Ordoins (15th Dan), Linda Van Donk (13th Dan), James King (13th Dan), John Owsiak (8th Dan), Carlito Flores (8th Dan); Shidoshi’s Charles Benham 7th Dan, Roman Marquez, 7th Dan, James Clum 7th Dan, and Shidoshi-ho’s Jamie Daiken (4th Dan) and Theodore Schink (4th Dan). These IBDA instructors have all trained with me (and others) and have been to Japan to train in the hombu dojo directly with Soke Hatsumi. You have to agree that this adds up to a wealth of experience in budo. Get the best of what they have learned in the arts presented to you. Get started and enjoy this training.
I filmed this event! And complied their most important concepts of Budo into a 236 page manual that includes the Ten Chi Jin Shidoshi books that has my own training notes in it.
About Budo Taijutsu (www.BudoTaijutsu.com)
Budo Taijutsu is a practical natural real fighting and philosophical martial arts system deeply founded in the lore of the mystic warriors of feudal Japan, both the Samurai and the Ninja. In our dojos we practice techniques, wazas, principles and philosophies of 9 different Japanese martial art schools, known as Ryu in Japanese. We train both unarmed and armed (both ancient, exotic and modern). We train in true proven ancient budo methods and we train in modern applications that have been used by Special Forces, FBI, DEA and police forces worldwide. The founder and International Director of the Bujinkan Dojo (Divine Warrior Training) with its Hombu Dojo, called the Bujinden (Divine Palace), residing in Noda City, Japan is Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi (commonly referred to as Soke – head of family).

This a fantastic course as far as I'm concerned-highly recommended to all training in Ninjutsu. Thank you Master Van Donk & all involved for supplying students with the absolute best training!

This is a great course in my opinion. It is for advanced students but I believe it will help all who are practicing Ninjutsu.
The filming was done very well, all demonstrations are clear, and you get a great deal of material which will keep you busy for years.
In my humble opinion all of the materials that are put out by Bujinkan and Shihan Richard Van Donk are really great. Best money you will spend.

Budo taijutsu is a great source to learn taijutsu. It reveals the secrets that are hidden behind simple body movement. It is not just a kind of another way to learn techniques, it is a good source for both black belt holders and students that wants to start their adventure with ninjutsu. I strongly recommend this course!
