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.
Upon his return, Mr. Bussey was an American pioneer of Togakure-Ryu and taught Togakure-Ryu directly under Soke Masaaki Hatsumi. In the United States, Mr Bussey taught and awarded Dan (Blackbelt) rankings in Togakure-Ryu Ninjutsu under the endorsement of Soke Masaaki Hatsumi for nearly a decade.
During this time, Mr Bussey focused his Ninjutsu training on the practical and realistic, while downplaying the antiquated and esoteric aspects of Ninjutsu. Mr. Bussey's modernized Togakure-Ryu Ninjutsu was taught at training branches around the world.
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. Mr. Bussey is currently teaching modern combative skills as a consultant to corporations, military personnel and police tactical units. As well Mr. Bussey teaches seminars and clinics with various groups through out the United States.
In July of 1997, American Ninjutsu began being taught under the North Texas Ninjutsu,LLC. 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.
There are multiple schools associated with North Texas Ninjutsu, LLC including schools in Texas, Oklohoma and North Carolina.
