Hi fellow NINJA'S HERE IS THE KOGA NINJA.... Hi i ve bin training for a lot of years in the art of BUJINKAN BUDO TAIJUTSU and also in TEW RYU NINJITSU martial sience! SHOTOKAN karate and jiu jitsu! What i think is that the bujinkan don't have the right to claim the name of ninjutsu or 'make a lot of use of the word ninja! The bujinkan art is made out of nine schools and only three of those schools are NINJA or NINPO schools the rest is JU JUTSU, the bujinkan practitioners with its teachers are training most of the time JU JUTSU the japanese are NOT teaching much of those NINJA schools or ninja stuff! What people think but what is totaly wrong is that BUJINKAN is NINJUTSU this is clearly not the case BUJINKAN and ninjutsu ARE NOT THE SAME! BUJINKAN is not even training schools as such they only use the flow of a certain school to practise and perform some techniques, so when HATSUMI say's we are training this year TAKAGI YOSHIN RYU (the theme of 2002) we only use the flow and the way of moving they do in the TAKAGI YOSHIN RYU my teacher is very very good at BUJINKAN and his name is SVEN ERIC BOGSAETER 13 th dan BUJINKAN BUDO TAIJUTSU! He is not very often talking about ninjutsu because his words are i am not graded in ninjutsu but in the art of BUJINKAN BUDO TAIJUTSU nothing more and nothing less! Now enough about BUJINKAN! next SUBJECT! Frank DUX and the KOGA YAMABUSHI FU YA NINJUTSU A lot of people very much from BUJINKAN and GENBUKAN are critizising about the treuth surrounding MR FRANK DUX! Mr FRANK DUX has an own life and an own story, my opinion is that mr FRANK DUX is not getting the credits and respect he deserves! He is a master of the KOGA YAMABUSHI FU YA NINJUTSU and Fought different fights there are videotapes of this fights in black and white and they are kept in the safe of mr DUX his LAWYER MIKE FRANKLE"" Mr FRank Dux has studied the art of the NINJA (koga yamabushi ninjutsu) by master sensei SENZO TANAKA, but he wasn't the only one there is another person who learned this style art and way of the ninja living in america and he is JAPANESE (for the tradition freaks) His name is HARUNAKA HOSHINO it was family of Mr TANAKA! You can find him on the internet on the search engines, HOSHINO also has a student and that is the ENGLISH man STEVEN BARLAAM 4 th dan KOGA YAMABUSHI FU YA NINJUTSU! E-mail sensei HOSHINO for further questions surrounding DUX! Dux had also a student his name is RICk TEW he made the traditional art more modern to this times and it WORKS so i train it! And those **** that people say about Ö dux has hit (following the media) through bulletproof glass thatswhy he is fake! At first that story is made by the media and wasn't true! It happend al different but a lot of people just believe that and take it for the treuth! Second: A family member is a technical engineer and he told me even if you have bulletproof glass and you have a strong force that you can direct on a bigg surface, the force is coming on the glass with a ring or a nuckle even BULLETPROOF GLASS breaks! Believe what you want. Styles are not important tradition means nothing if you only know all this THEN you get layed down in 30 seconds in a real fight! It is al about attitude and confidence! PEACE and RESPECT the KOGA NINJA!! Please check out the new video's from JUAn HOMBRE and the traditional KOGA RYU NINJUTSU!
