The History of American Ninjutsu American Ninjutsu's roots go back to Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu. Mr. Robert Bussey pioneered Togakure Ryu in 1979, being one of the first two men to bring the art to the United States from Japan. Under the tutelage of Shihan Toshiro Nagato, Mr. Bussey received his instructor license from Soke Masaaki Hatsumi, 34th successor to the Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu tradition.
Robert Bussey disassociated himself from traditional Ninjutsu in 1988 and started Robert Bussey's Warrior International (RBWI).
Robert Bussey left traditional Ninjutsu for two reasons:
Because of its foundation in eastern religious beliefs, rather than Christianity.
Some of the traditional movements were impractical for a reality based martial art.
In June of 1997, Robert Bussey retired and disbanded his organization.
In July of 1997, American Ninjutsu began being taught under the Personal Protection Concepts (PPC) organization. This new organization was founded by former RBWI sanctioned instructors who wanted to keep their ties with each other current, continue teaching practical self defense within biblical values, and continue to grow and pass on their knowledge.
FAST! Trainees assume that anyone, regardless of size or skill level, can be dangerous. In order to defend against the brawler or trained technician, you need to be exposed to unique methods that work against armed, unarmed, and even multiple attackers.
American Ninjutsu Academy trainees work on an effective range of tools that can be learned quickly, without all of the restraints and outdated methods that traditional systems require of there students.
NOT A SPORT In the real world of personal protection, it's life and death. Anything can happen. Although contest can promote skill and strategy, a tournament is confined by restrictions. It does not address multiple opponents or armed assailants, and in general can build a false sense of security in one's ability to defend his or her life. In American Ninjutsu the challenge you'll face will be to become your personal best.
