REUNION EVENT- If you have ever been to one of our Tai Kai’s over the last 30 years we would love to have you come join us!!



THEME – Controlling Space (IBDA Bujinkan 2017)


It would be so awesome for us all to get together again for an outrageous time. Just think of the stories. Many people came to these camps and tai kais as white belts and got their first green belts here and now they are 15th dans!!! Imagine that. Many of you are now Sensei’s, Shidoshi and Shihan’s. Come share your stories and insights.


Shihan Richard Van Donk wants to hear your stories and see how you have grown in the arts. This event will be special and everyone that has come before is invited. bring together everyone that has come in the past so that all these students that now became Sensei’s, Shidoshi and Shihan’s can share how they have grown.


While Shihan Richard Van Donk will teach some he would like this to be an open event where lots of instructors get a turn sharing their knowledge. A reunion event will certainly be an almost all night training event plus dawn to late night official training just like we did in the old days. We love the outdoor training and are working towards this for our 30th. 


If Shihan Richard Van Donk can convince his wife we will have a great 30th Anniversary party at his house with a barbecue, drinks, music and a late night camp fire with dancing girls, if we can find some. Well, we may have to skip the dancing girls at the house. 


We are sure to make it special….. our 25th was over the top!!


We have arranged special discounts at the Casino Hotel so please use our discount code when booking your room. Information on Sign up. 

We live in extraordinary times and the skills that you learn here could someday save your life or someone's you love.

Mark down these dates -April 6th - 9th, 2014 (Thursday night to Sunday eve) in Middletown, California (a small mountain village in the Napa Wine country north of San Francisco) for an exciting special Tai Kai non-stop training, and Party in Shihans Suite Room at the Casino. ALSO, there will be a group catered Banquet meal and entertainment held at Event Center held Saturday night and that is included. Guest tickets are additional.
