Great news the newly formed IBDA Shidoshi Master Council will take over and produce the annual Tai Kai event! And they will work towards having more than one each year in different parts of the USA so more people can attend. They will do it in Middletown, CA again next year 2013 as it worked out so great here (I think they just want me to have no excuse to attend. hahahaha ) 2014 will be in Denver Colorado hosted mostly by Charles Benham. There is talk of a Canada Tai Kai in 2015. And the Mexican Riviera in 2016. Sign up early and save! http://ibda-taikai.com/
started training in the Bujinkan with Soke Hatsumi
in the 1980's. At that time we diligently studied the Ninja arts,
we practiced it no actually we lived it and then started sharing
it with friends and family. We all LOVED this training. We trained
in the woods. We trained in the parks. We trained at the beach.
We trained in secret warehouses.
We trained ANYWHERE and
days Soke Hatsumi called the art "Ninpo
Taijutsu" and Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu.
will be a certified IBDA Rank testing event. For IBDA students only!!
Please Note: While Shihan Richard Van Donk is authorized to give the Godan test by Soke Hatsumi potential Godan candidates must be pre-approved by Soke Hatsumi and Shihan Van Donk, prior to the event. You must be training directly with IBDA and have hold a valid Japan Hombu issued Yondan certification. We do not rank ANYONE else's students. Do not come and just expect to be tested for Godan- It will not happen.
