Club - About us
The club was founded in Split on November 5, 2015, and runs under the supervision of Dojo Cho Dean Rostohar, Dai Shihan, inside the Bujinkan Seishin Dojo Croatia.
The school works to improve, teach, and practice Ninjutsu, a martial art passed down through Bujinkan’s 9 inherited schools (3 samurai schools, 3 ninjutsu schools and 3 which were done by both samurai and ninja). Ninja warriors were the forerunners of today’s special forces, with training that was well ahead of its time. Ninjas were so dedicated to their profession that the term “ninja” is now commonly applied to anyone who is an expert in a certain field.
We teach according to the Bujinkan program; the first group follows the Ten Ryaku no Maki program (basic principles of the sky), while the advanced group follows monthly subjects that are determined on an annual basis (one month of weapon training and the other according to Densho). The advanced group passes Chi Ryaku no Maki (earth’s basic principles) and Jin Ryaku no Maki (basic principles of man).
At a higher level, one can learn from Bujinkan’s inherited schools (Togakure-ryū Ninpō Taijutsu, Gyokushin Ryū, Kumogakure Ryū, Koto Ryū Koppō jutsu, Gyokko-ryū Kosshi jutsu, Kuki Shinden Happō Bikenjutsu, Shindenka Fudo Ryū jutsu Gikan Ryū Koppō jutsu).
We choose one of the Bujinkan schools each year for a topic that is only studied through seminars throughout the year and is directed and taught by Davor Gašparović, Dai Shihan.
Shiden Fudo Ryu was the theme for 2021, and Takage Yoshin Ryu School is the theme for 2022.
Modern fight, in addition to the Bujinkan program, is taught, with bare-handed combat and the use of various modern weapons as a foundation. The battle conditions are modernized (with current weapons, tactics, and a way of life), and the basis of Modern fight are derived from the Bujinkan and the Specwog organization, where Dean Rostohar is an instructor.
We hold camping seminars in nature (typically on a mountain) several times a year where Ninjutsu martial art in nature is taught and practiced.
Annual self-defense workshops are also held, in which we teach and practice self-defense concepts through conflict, prevention, and action.
Three two-hour trainings are held each week, and members of the Club frequently attend seminars and trainings at the Bujinkan Seishin Dojo Zagreb to further their education.
Marin Jovanović (Shidoshi Ho) is the instructor and leader of the training.
