FYI, Our ONLINE programs at Bushindo University have always been up to date, including PDF's of the Manuals and has had more information in it due to the remastering of and lack of desire for DVD’s by some students.

audiocd.jpg FREE BONUS #2- Japanese Phrases Audio @ $19.95
Japanese is a difficult language to learn and we are learning a Japanese art with lots of terminology in its original language. This is not hard to learn if you are learning a technique at a time with a name attached to it, as you are just naming something. But being able to pronounce it right, Ah,,, I don't know about you but I need some help here. DaiShihan Linda Van Donk after hearing some rather interesting training terminology said in a very funny way (can't write it here) sat down and scripted out all the important Japanese words that we use in training up to Shodan. Then She recorded it on an Audio Track for the students (many thanks to her!). This Ninjutsu terminology Audio cd says the phase in Japanese and then in English with a slight pause so you can repeat it out loud. What a difference it makes. This normally sells for $19.95 and we threw it in the set for FREE.

FREE BONUS #3- Ranking Registration @ $125.00

  1. Clear, thought out teaching. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2021

    Begun my third viewing of the material. Immediately, one can tell that a lot of care went into the creation of this study course. This is, in my opinion, a very good investment of one's time and money well spent! This is very clearly the beginning of a fine journey.

  2. Perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2021

    Perfect course that is well written in the manual and well recorded on DVD. The manual is highly detailed and has a lot of great spiritual information about the true nature of the art as well as all of the techniques.

  3. Highly recommended! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2017

    This is a terrific course to start you on your path to becoming a Ninja blackbelt. It builds you a strong foundation in which also strengthens your upper training after that. It is absolutely a fantastic course & I highly recommend to anyone starting out in Ninjutsu. Thank you again Master Von Donk!

  4. training 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2017

    read the training manual and find it to be a excellent manual and will start training but due to my age I will be training at a moderate phase. I earned a shodan in Shotokan in the 1970 but have been out of training for many years. my arthritis is my problem and I don't have a training partner

  5. Very fairly priced, and it's quite an investment. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2017

    This really is an outstanding course. I got mine back in 2004, and I can't tell you how many times I've referenced it over the years training on my own and then sending in a video for rank, or after working with an instructor, to do extra study outside of class when a henka still just didn't feel right. If you're willing to put in the time, you can absolutely build a very solid foundation from this course. Also works great as a syllabus for teaching the basics. Ninjutsu Made Easy is also a fantastic series in a logical format that can really help teach the basics--the video on rolling is probably my favorite. GM RVD's products pass on some great information, and this course was totally worth the purchase for me.

  6. amazing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Sep 2013

    Love this course, this is bujinkan at its
    Best. I am a practitioner of jujutsu but have always had deep respect for the bujinkan and Master Richard Van Donk.

    This course has blessed my life as well as has taught me some authentic effective Martial skills. i am currently learning all I can from this course and training in all aspects of this great art thru this amazing course.

    I am blessed to have the opportunity to train in authentic bujinkan ninjutsu thru this course. I am deeply gratefull to ibda and shihan Richard van donk for giving us this opportunity. I recomend this course highly. It is the best I've studied in my life look forward to many years of study now although I probably won't opt in for ranking etc.

    I know I will forever find enough to keep me going and to train in thru this course for many years. If your looking for a Martial Arts course and an art to improve your life in spirit mind and body Get this Great Course.

  7. Good nut one thing is missing. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2013

    So far I love everything across the board. But there really isn't much by way of kata. so practicing on my own is a little more difficult because I kind of have to wing it. I have really only viewed the first 2 disks so far. So you might want to ask again in a few months as I am taking my time to truly absorb all that I can from it.

  8. The cornerstone for Tatsujin 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2013

    Hatsumi Soke tells us to have a "religious experience" in our martial practices and this delivers just that. Everything is covered in this course. It is the absolute perfect foundation for working through the schools of the Bujinkan. Not only does Shihan RVD explain in great detail the dynamics of each technique, but he explains why to give you a full understanding of your training. All of the great information on kuji-in and kuji-kiri is a great boon for any warrior on this path. The spiritual refinement section was great - and its only the beginning. With the dvds and in depth shodan manual, you can't go wrong. Well worth every penny and more. You simply can't put a price on all that course will do for you if you work through it with a sincere heart and desire to be a better individual. This art is a life-changing and life-giving art; something everyone can greatly benefit from. Simply amazing work!

  9. Ninjutsu is there 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2013

    If you want to learn ninjutsu, this course is a great source of that!
    I've bought the course and studied with my friend. After the time I surpised ninjutsu sandan holders (3rd degree black belt) when I did arm locks more effective than they do, but why not ? I have learned from master! And I am really grateful for that knowledge!
    This course is kind of "must have" courses.

  10. i have learned to connect with earth on a level i did not expected to 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2012

    i have learned, think, seen, felt unexplainable feelings. i founded out that if the exercise is done during the time of the morning it tents to exhale that ninja assassin feeling. im going to practice more the spiritual path on Tuesdays and Thursdays i founded out that it connects way more this way to earth than any other. i have learned so much and i cant wait to learn some more.
