Greetings Martial Artists,
The Seattle Budokan cordially invites you to join us during a two-day Ninjutsu seminar Saturday, May 7th and Sunday, May 8th at the Seattle Budokan in Bellevue WA. There will be training both days and a dinner Sunday night. Please see below for details on our special guest Shihan who will be instructing and training with us, as well as more details on the seminar itself. We hope to see you there!
Shihan Ed Martin aka Papa-san is a long time student and master teacher of the Bujinkan Dojo system founded by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi Soke Ph.D. Ed received the Bujinkan Golden Dragon medal, the Bujinkan’s highest award, in recognition of his self-defense videos.
Papa-san, Ed Martin , is one of a handful of senior teachers carrying on the tradition of Ninjutsu in the world today. At 15th Dan he is the highest rank achievable under Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. He is the author of many books and DVD's on locks, chokes, cane, self-defense, Chi-Kung, Ojii Jutsu, and knife/weapon self-defense. He travels, conducting seminars and tests for teachers and students of Budo Taijutsu, and still welcomes visitors in his own home in Pennsylvania. He is a senior master in the Bujinkan and a respected warrior who lives with humor, simplicity, and compassion. We are honored to host this event and thankful for Ed’s continuing contributions!
