Modern Defense Class

In this class we always work on solving current self defense concerns. We take violent events in the news, and breakdown how you would survive different situations, such as active shooters, home invasions and more.  We also talk about the ethics of each of these situations.

In this video Master Prather is walking with a friend who is attacked by a knife. Here, Master Prather places himself between good and evil, as any true American warrior should.

What we teach Introductory Video!

Authentic

Our art is 900 years old and is the original mixed martial art. Ideal for self defense and protection others, the Bujinkan incorporates strikes, kicks, grappling, and a myriad of weapons into one organic, intuitive system that utilizes timing, distance and flow instead of speed and strength. Elements of  MMA, judo, jujutsu, karate martial arts are all found in our non-competitive system.

Bujinkan USA was founded in 1990 by Dai Shihan (Great Master) Jeffrey Prather and is the oldest, most authentic  Ninja School in Arizona, and one of the first in the US.

Others teach Bujinkan Budo in Tucson, Az now, but originally they all studied with Prather Shihan. 

Experienced

Stephen Hayes first brought Bujinkan Ninjutsu to the the US and Prather Shihan was one his first students in 1980. In 1982 Prather Shihan met and trained under Bujinkan Soke (Grandmaster) Masaaki Hatsumi Soke during his first US visit.  In 1984 Prather Shihan traveled to Noda, Japan where Soke Hatsumi made him his personal student.

Prather Shihan stayed with Soke and the other Japanese Shihans’ in their homes, and his classes back then were one on one.

As ushi deshi (inside student)  Prather Shihan has an intimate relationship with Hatsumi Soke that those who later followed in the hundreds will never experience.

Real World

Dai Shihan Prather is also a nationally recognized combatives, self defense, and firearms instructor. He has trained over 20,000 US Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, as well as FBI, DIA, NSA, US Marshals, and many others at times in units as large as 600 per day!

Shihan Prather has been inducted many times into the US Martial Arts Hall of Fame, as well the Shinja  Martial Arts Hall of Fame.

He is published and featured in both U.S. and Japan’s most prestigious martial arts magazines, and his books and DVDs sell worldwide, and were an international staple in Army Air Force Exchange Stores.

Trusted

Hatsumi Soke has only trusted a very few senior Shihan to host his annual, worldwide Taikais (Grand Gathering) where 600 students from throughout the US and world would gather to train with the Grand master. Prather Shihan has twice hosted Soke’s USA Taikai, first in 1995 then in 1999. Prior to Taikais  the Japanese Shihan would in turn stay in Prather Shihan’s home.

Shihan Prather was awarded a second 10th dan rank by Soke Hatsumi in Shinkengata (real life combat). He has been awarded the prestigious Dragon Gold Medal by Soke twice. He was 3rd in the US to receive Jugodan (15th degree black belt).

Soke has awarded Prather Shihan many times but none is more important than the one of a kind, Bujinden Guardian Spirit menkyo to preserve the true teachings of Bujinkan Budo!

Climbing

Ninja were the original parkour practitioners, famous for their climbing and wall running skills, utilized to infiltrate castles and elude opponents. Our dojo kids class practice these same skill sets. Our wall is so much more than just a conventional kids climbing gym class.

Shihan Prather teaches authentic ninja climbing, wall and tree running that Hatsumi Soke, the Grand-master and founder of the international Bujinkan taught him decades ago. At left a student practices reverse climbing with eyes out. This technique was used to watch for sentries when scaling castle walls. Today kids learn confidence, skill and coordination via these ancient techniques.

Family Focused

We have weekly classes for tots ( ages 3-5), kids (5-12), and adults (12 up). We also have weekly Open Mat Practice, when all ages, and parents can come on the tatami mat, and practice and play together.

Grand master Hatsumi, who has twice visited our Tucson dojo, is famous for saying after demonstrating a technique, “Now play!”

Prather Shihan annually hosts his and Hatsumi Soke’s birthday dinners in his home for all students and their families, just as Soke did for him.
