Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is a Japanese martial system comprised of 9 warrior schools of Samurai and Ninjutsu traditions with lineage dating back more than 1000 years. Studied internationally by military and security organizations working in high-threat situations, grandmaster Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi’s Bujinkan system has received many elite awards including 2 from the Emperor of Japan (no other Japanese martial art has received this). Dai-shihan Paul Mann, 15th dan and head of the Bujinkan Vancouver Taka Seigi Dojo, has travelled regularly to Japan over the past 20 years to study under Dr. Hatsumi.
