Bujinkan Ninjutsu has roots back to the 12th Century. It was developed as a set of skills to survive and persevere against the Samurai armies. It incorporated a blending of Japanese medieval warcraft, esoteric spirtuality, and an understanding of natural laws all of which were influenced by Chinese refugee monks. The Bujinkan Organisation was founded by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi, the head of nine martial schools. Shihan Brin Morgan, one of his students, went on to create the Shadow Warrior Society – now an international Bujinkan school.
At Oxford Shadow Warrior Bujinkan we try to maintain the effectiveness of this art as it has been passed down through the generations. Yet, just as Ninjutsu has always adapted to current environments and styles, we also interpret the art to the needs of modern life.
