We are Divine Warrior Ninjutsu.
We teach Ninjutsu and Samuraijutsu. Our main headquarters is the Bujinkan Honbu in Japan, but we also teach ninjutsu from other lesser sources as well. Bujinkan is the largest ninjutsu and samurai organization in the world, and as such, all official paperwork goes through them primarily, with the option to go the other ways also. The Bujinkan is made up of 9 family traditions, 6 of which are samurai jutsu and 3 are ninja jutsu. They are:
- Togakure-ryū Ninpō Ninjutsu (戸隠流忍法体術)
- Gyokko ryū Kosshi jutsu (玉虎流骨指術)
- Kuki Shinden Happō Bikenjutsu (九鬼神伝流八法秘剣術)
- Koto Ryū Koppō jutsu (虎倒流骨法術)
- Shinden Fudo Ryū Dakentai jutsu (神伝不動流打拳体術)
- Takagi Yoshin Ryū Jūtai jutsu (高木揚心流柔体術)
- Gikan Ryū Koppō jutsu (義鑑流骨法術)
- Gyokushin-ryū Ryū Ninpō (玉心流忍法)
- Kumogakure Ryū Ninpō (雲隠流忍法)
The Headmaster of the Bujinkan is Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi of Japan (pictured). His credentials are extensive, to say the least, often being employed by the US Military to train Navy Seals, CIA, and special forces.
The New Brunswick chapter is headed by Jason Steeves. He began training at age 10 and visits Japan regularly to train with Hatsumi Soke and his senior instructors. He is a 13th Dan (13th degree black belt, Jusandan). He also is ex military serving the Canadian Armed Forces as a gunner/assaulter on the Air Defence Anti Tank System, as well as Prison Riot Squad, SCUBA, Airbourne, special detail to the Colonel of several Canadian forces bases, and twice awarded the gold medal in Warrior performance, including sniper training. He is also a certified personal trainer.
Jason is also a university graduate holding an Associate of Arts in Ministry, a Graduate of Theology, and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion, all majoring in Christian Counseling. He has also written a dozen books and produced a few training and other videos as well.
In the private sector, he has worked as bodyguard, captain of the neighbourhood watch, security of federal government projects, and consultant of different security details, as well as CIA training in the United States.
All claims are certified. Remember not to take an instructor's word for it. Always ask to see credentials.
