    Chris Parker said - I've gone through this for years, and asked for any examples of actual ryu-ha transmission and teachings in the Bujinkan... I haven't seen it in any way at any time... including in Japan. Teaching from the ryu-ha? Yes. Teaching the ryu-ha themselves? Not at all. And, again...

    Elninjo said: This is because in the early days (1980;s to early 1990s) the teachings were specifically Togakure Ryu. People think when ninjutsu first came to the west that it was bujinkan as it is today, it was not. The only ryuha Hatsumi wished to teach the west (for whatever reasons)...

    Dunc said - I dont agree with his assertion in this thread that the ryuha have not been taught by Soke and you cant learn them in the Bujinkan. Again this is from my direct personal experience I am not sure what you mean by this, not taught by Soke? The last time I was in Japan (2019), Soke...

    It was not Bujinkan when it first came to Australia, it was only Togakure Ryu. The point I am making is that someone who comes from the Wayne L Roy "clan" is likely to be bias against the Bujinkan. Chris would be well aware of this dynamic. Has he ever mentioned he was a student of Wayne L Roy...

    Absolutely agree that we are all bias in some way. We all put our own slant on things and no matter how much we talk about it there will always be those that disagree, thats the way of things. The Bujinkan does teach all of those 9 school in varying degrees. Why do you say Sean Askew and Kacem...

Some of the information in the thread is skewed to personal bias and/or ignorance. If you are doing research on the authenticity of the Bujinkan then you will need to do...

    Was Rokas wrong about bujinkan?
