You may have trained in this art for a quite a while but who has ever taken the time to train you how to teach? Who has taken the time to explain why we do certain things the way we do them and what it means? Now you can learn this real and all too often not understood information on the "Way" and how to teach it from a respected teacher who's been on this path himself for over 40 years.

Would You Sell your BlackBelt experience for $50,000?
We have asked many people over the years who have achieved Black Belt level with us this same question,
"Would you sell your Blackbelt knowledge, the changes it has made in your life, the impact it has made on others and the friends you have made through training for $50,000?"

Their reply? NO WAY. In one class of 20 Blackbelts we upped the ante to $1,000,000 yet they still all said NO. They actually said they would turn down one million dollars - Now that says something about the training!
    Did you know you can be a Black Belt in doing techniques and yet only be a White Belt at being able to teach them?
    Teaching can be challenging on many levels until you learn by trial and error over time what works and what doesn't OR now you can get trained in a proven step-by-step method, possibly avoiding many years of painful stress or just getting too frustrated and quitting.

    Teaching becomes a natural progression for many students that reach their Black Belt level, sometimes even sooner, as friends and family become curious about what you are learning. Sharing what you love is magical and gives you a great feeling inside.
  • But it is one thing to be able to do techniques and a whole other thing to be able to share the teachings in a way that others can under­stand and duplicate what you are sharing. When the size of your group increases to 10, 20, 50 or even 100 students on any consistent basis it can be very overwhelming if you are not trained in how to handle this.
  • The IBDA Shidoshi Teacher Training Course is designed to teach you how to set up your trainings, create schedules, create themes and select material for your classes. It will also teach you how to instruct a class and how to handle challenging dojo situations. It will teach you how to interact with your students in a way that keeps them coming back for more.

    Shihan Van Donk will teach you how he teaches, how he trains his instructors and the secrets to helping them to have better lives while getting paid to do what they love.

    Are you part of the future of the Bujinkan teachings?
    The future of the Bujinkan teachings depend on its instructors knowing how to properly transfer the art’s knowledge to their students and for these instructors to represent themselves as confident professionals both in and out of the dojo.
    We want our instructors to be good examples for others to follow and that means they should be given training in how to teach. This makes their transition to teaching easier and this is why IBDA requires that all students who wish to become Shidoshi-ho instructors with IBDA complete this Shidoshi (Teacher of the “Warrior Ways of Enlightenment”) Teacher Training Course. Some people will get to learn this in a dojo setting and others may only train outdoors with a few friends, but whatever your situation, this Teacher Training Course will will give you the tools and the understanding needed to go to a deeper level in your personal training
    It is wonderful if you can attend our dojo classes directly or train with a certified instructor but if this is not available to you then we have a complete Distant Learning Program that can take you as far as you want to go. Start with the Black Belt Home Study Shodan Course and work your way to the top.

    Now, while you are training to get your Black Belt in Ninjutsu (if you don't already have one) you can also study how to teach the art to others. Most students will start this Shidoshi Teacher Training by the time they reach the 3rd kyu level, which is over half way to Shodan, so that when you get your Shodan (or Nidan) you will already be trained as a Shidoshi-ho (junior licensed instructor, a direct student under Shihan Van Donk).

    Taking this Shidoshi Ninjutsu Teacher Training Course will enable you to open up your own Ninjutsu dojo. But the greatest achievement of all is what you will feel inside, the changes you have made in your life and how this affects others around you because of your hard-earned efforts. These studies have been proven to change lives! If this is your path you can help us change lives by sharing the art properly!
    The Shidoshi Teacher Training Courseis a required prerequisite to becoming an IBDA Shidoshi-ho instructor.
    You do not have to be an IBDA member to get this course at this time. This has been a subject of big debate with my staff and current Shidoshis, however, I really want everyone to benefit from this course - and honestly I don't know how you can really call yourself a teacher, a Shidoshi, if you don't know and understand the information contained in this training course. I know that I'm being quite blunt here but it's the truth. There are hundreds of people with the title of Shidoshi who haven't got a clue as to what's behind what they see Soke do at every training, what things mean in the dojo space, not one clue. How can they pass on the real teachings correctly? So at this time the Shidoshi Ninjutsu Teacher Training Course is available to everyone, no matter who they train with but my mind may be changed at anytime by the IBDA students that are committed to the teachings.
    I know that this is an excellent course. It took me over 20 years to learn all the things I've put into this Shidoshi Teacher Course and over 2 years to write it.
    Now you can get all of it for only $397!!!  SALE PRICE $347-
    I ASSURE YOU that it will save you years of errors and heartache and will earn you many times the investment. This has been more than proven by all the students that has completed this training.

  • P.S. Remember, it really is one thing to be able to do techniques well and an entirely different thing to be able to share the teachings in a way so that others can understand what you are sharing and be able to do well with it.
    This course will teach you how to set up training, create schedules, create themes and select material for your classes. It will also teach you how to instruct a class and how to handle dojo situations as well as teach you how to interact with your students.

    You would not still be reading this far unless your were really interested in being a Shidoshi or learning more about how to teach. Maybe you want to know how to do lesson plans for your students or just to be a part of the lineage and pass it on down to your children.

    We urge you to get started today, if you haven't already started on the Shidoshi - Ninjutsu Path. Like everyone else you'll begin your training at 10th kyu level and work your way through the material. At IBDA we all start the journey with the first level of learning the 9th kyu material.

    By adding this Shidoshi Teacher Training to your studies, when you get your Shodan (or Nidan) you will already be trained to open up your own Ninjutsu dojo. Those that complete this course will be granted a Shidoshi-ho ( a direct student under Shihan Van Donk) title and certified teaching license issued by IBDA and signed by Doshi Richard Van Donk.

    IBDA Achievement Levels 
    Getting your Shodan is a major Achievement Level (Level 1).
    The next Achievement Level (Level 2) would be earning your Shidoshi-ho.
    Achievement Level 3 is to advance through the 2nd dan - 5th dan educational materials we have carefully established to prepare you for the 5th dan test with Doshi Richard Van Donk.
    Once you pass this test you will become a fully licensed teacher, a Shidoshi (Achievement Level 4).
    Achievement Level 5 would be becoming a Shihan (8th-10th dan).
    Always remember that the greatest level of all is what you will feel inside, the changes you have made in your life and how this has affected others because of your hard-earned efforts. These studies have been proven to change lives.
    Start your journey of being a great Shidoshi today.
    I look forward to helping you realize your dreams,
    Richard Van Donk, Doshi
    IBDA HeadMaster

  2. Humorfilled and Substantially Worthwile 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2015

    Thank you above and beyond Master Richard J. Van Donk. Your notes on how to live and breath the enlightenment that we wish to experience in ourselves and others was an incredible boon. The audio cds are immensely helpful in regards to picking up more clearly what your lessons mean. I am so glad you were chosen to represent Ninjutsu and the Source that governs us all. Many, many, and many thanks. I am inspired to study all things repeatedly and at length and breadth and greater depth. Thank you for inspiring me through your most kind words. Thank you.

  3. Nothing short of brilliant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2014

    The entire time I was reading this book it was as if I were sitting directly across from Master Van Donk receiving these lessons in person. His thoughts and the emotions and energy conveyed in this work came across so strongly it can't help but move you on a spiritual level. I will forever be thankful for the time and dedication Master RVD has put into his works and the commitment to spreading his arts to the world. Get this Shidoshi course and experience it for your self. Whether your a student of the ninja arts or any martial art this will take you to the next level! Thanks again for sharing this with the rest of us.

  4. Shidoshi ho course - customer's feedback 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2013

    I am pleased to say I finished the shidoshi ho course book :) Now only presentation left and examples for teaching and I will ask you for a test for the shidoshi :)
    I would like to share with you my feedback about the book.

    The book is great!! This book is created in the best way I ever seen!

    Shihan Richard Van Donk has focused on all aspects of teachnings, what is important why it is important. Now I think I know more about the all steps in trainings, how to handle different situations, rude people etc. I think this is also a good lesson for me as a student, not only from a teacher perspective. It explains every part of training and why it takes a place. Recently even I shared with my knowledge about history of bowing :) It was great to know, even that's simple action has a deep source and meaning.
    In the course I could find the answers for a lot of my questions that I had.

    Dear Shihan Richard Van Donk, I would like to say thank you for your work on this book, you did a great job, that just confirm you are the best teacher!

  5. The best shidoshi course! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2013

    This is a great course that covers many aspects of teaching. It explains entire process of teaching ninjutsu, covers a lot of things like how to organize that, how to handle a lot of situations that could happen during the training. How to create teachings more interesting. Also This course is a good source about history, where I could find many answers for my questions. It provides a lot of information about the traditions, and also explains why it takes a place. The book is great!
    This is one on my "Must have" list.

  6. Unreal 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2013

    I will admit, there are pitches for other products, but it is an overview course, and it will give you all the skills you need to handle a training group or Dojo and then some. This is an amazing course, the dvd's are packed with enough info to be worth the price alone, but then you get a huge, very nice binder, and he even gives you 13 hours of audio teaching. Shihan Van Donk is truly a giving man, and I would easily pay three times what they ask for this course.

  7. Out standing material, worth it's weight in gold...... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Apr 2013

    I ordered the Shidoshi 101 course in an effort to give my self and my future dojo everything I could. I wanted to get my hands on something that would aid me in teaching this wonderful art.

    What I received was so much more.

    The Shidoshi 101 showed me everything one could ever want to know about teaching. It gave me a deeper understanding into our art, and a clarity that is honestly worth its weight in gold.


    Posted by on 7th Sep 2012

    This is a must read for anyone wanting to be a Shidoshi-ho or Shidoshi once you pick it up to read you will have a hard time putting in down. The tapes are great you can listen to them anywhere at any time even while working (please do not tell my boss). Now I can't wait to get the Dojo wealth building course !!!

  9. Absolute complete Shidoshi Training! I love this course! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2011

    Shihan VanDonk has done an amazing job with this Shidoshi Course. I have been training with this course for over a year now, and I absolutely love it! My knowledge about the art and the Bujinkan itself has expanded to extreme levels by studying this course. It goes into amazing detail on the origins of the art, as well as ideas on how to run a profitable dojo. I have already made over $5k with the ideas and information in this course. I am chomping at the bit for the upcoming Dojo Wealth Building Course because of the impact I have felt from this course. I listen to the CDs every day as I drive to and from work and I read the manual atleast 4 nights a week. You've got to get this course!
