Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu Dojo, Victoria BC Canada

"The skill of the ninja is the art of winning."
The Juhakkei were originally listed in the scrolls of Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu and have become definitive for all Ninjutsu Schools. Often studied alongside the Bugei Juhappan (Samurai Fighting Disciplines), the Juhakkei represent a complex traditional system of study. The Ninja Juhakkei and Bugei Juhappen contain similarities that traditionally were studied and interpreted differently between Shinobi and Bushi.
