FYI, Our ONLINE programs at Bushindo University have always been up to date, including PDF's of the Manuals and has had more information in it due to the remastering of and lack of desire for DVD’s by some students.

audiocd.jpg FREE BONUS #2- Japanese Phrases ONLINE Audio @ $19.95
Japanese is a difficult language to learn and we are learning a Japanese art with lots of terminology in its original language. This is not hard to learn if you are learning a technique at a time with a name attached to it, as you are just naming something. But being able to pronounce it right, Ah,,, I don't know about you but I need some help here. DAISHIHAN Linda Van Donk after hearing some rather interesting training terminology said in a very funny way (can't write it here) sat down and scripted out all the important Japanese words that we use in training up to Shodan. Then She recorded it on an Audio TRACK for the students (many thanks to her!). This Ninjutsu terminology Audio cd says the phase in Japanese and then in English with a slight pause so you can repeat it out loud. What a difference it makes. This normally sells for $19.95 and we threw it in the set for FREE.

    Black Belt Course

    Posted by Gabriella M.E Gonzales on Jun 15th 2022

    I just started the Black Belt course, and the techniques for the 9th Kyu are very well explained. Have read the entire course book, and it is fantastic. I've read everything up to page 144, and it's very well written, now let's go through the techniques calmly and practice for the 9th Kyu of course. Have practiced several martial arts in the past, all up to the brown belt, but this is totally different for the better. I'd say don't hesitate, but go order this one, you won't regret it.

    Best blackbelt home study course.

    Posted by Jody Watson on Sep 21st 2021

    I love this blackbelt home study course. It is a fast way to learn and train. Grandmaster Richard Van Donk is in my opinion a great role model for people to follow. I am blessed to be able to learn Ninjutsu from him and his wife. Very good detailed course . He even autographed my guidebook. That pretty awesome of him!!!

    The Black Belt Home Study Program

    Posted by Alexander Brow on Mar 26th 2018

    I have studied Martial Arts for years, read books published by Masters and used them to practice Taekwondo and Brazilian Jujitsu and I am very satisfied with this program. The depth of the information conveyed as well as the honesty of that information being just a beginning is matched with the high level of content. I am reading the manual in sections because of the size of the material. All in all I am very pleased that I bought this program.
