Black Belt Home Study Course
A personal note from Shihan Van Donk
You will be excited about this art and all it offers. I tell you this from my own personal experience. While studying karate with great instructors for almost 10 years I became very intrigued by other arts. Of course when I first started I focused on getting my black belt and becoming a good student, and a good representative of my art. I was very traditional and dedicated but something was missing. I wanted more skills – I didn’t want to miss anything – I wanted to learn it all.
I wanted to become an ultimate warrior (with heart) and not be limited in my abilities.This passion led me into studying many systems and I earned a few more blackbelts -and then my boyhood dream came to pass – Ninjutsu.
It seemed to have everything: the ultimate warrior, stealth, great ukemi, grappling (needed for a karate, TKD stylist), mind mastery, and protector of freedom attitude. I deeply sought it out and went to Japan to train with the legendary Ninja Grandmaster Hatsumi – in fact I’ve gone over 25 times and have been granted master status and full teaching authority from him. What I’m saying here is you now have an opportunity to add to what you already do. Give your martial arts career a new perspective and your skills new revitalization. I personally guarantee you will enjoy this art and it is always necessary to have a few tricks up your sleeve….. they might as well be Ninja ones! You are most welcome to train with us. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. BTW, we are looking for a few more BlackBelt Certification Instructors at International Bujinkan Dojo AssociationTM, aka IBDA.
