Learn what it takes to become a Black Belt
in Ninjutsu in your own home at your own pace!

faq-montageThis revolutionary Ninjutsu Home Study Course pioneered by Master Richard Van Donk, 15th dan, is used by high ranking Ninjutsu instructors and beginning students alike with great success in over 75 countries worldwide. Seven years, 1000’s of hours of research, lots of blood, sweat and tears, and almost ¼ million miles of travel in about 50 trips to Japan to personally train with Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi and other Shihan teachers went into providing you with this very comprehensive step by step Black Belt curriculum. There is none like it anywhere else in the world. The elite World Grandmaster Council (WHFSC) gave us the best top International Videos Award in 1999. Find out why for yourself! Train at home on your own time at your own pace!

WHY A HOME STUDY COURSE?

Simply put, authentic Ninjutsu is hard to find in many parts of the world. There are not qualified instructors available on every menu_r16_c2corner. The Ninjutsu Blackbelt Home Study Course gives people who are not fortunate enough to have a teacher near them an opportunity to study this art in a step by step manner, offers them a way to get feedback on their training, and if desired, obtain a certified ranking. From the reports of our video students this is a dream come true. The Ninjutsu Blackbelt Home Study Course even helps those who have a Ninjutsu dojo near them to practice the lessons at home, enhancing their training. Our students who train at the dojo and at home with the course advance at least twice as quickly. The Ninjutsu Blackbelt Home Study Course also creates a standard for growth and gives a new blackbelt a method for becoming an instructor themselves.

WHO WILL BENEFIT BY STUDYING THE COURSE?

People who want a life change, new martial art students, families or buddies who want a hobby together, those who train but want more information, to learn faster, those without instructors, instructors who want a curriculum for students, blackbelts in other arts and schools who want to add to their system, knowledge or credibility. Our success tells us that our Ninjutsu Blackbelt Home Study Course will give you the edge you need to become a better martial artist.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Simply enroll in the Ninjutsu Home Study Course by either purchasing the complete course at a discount or getting at least the 1st three videos, Shodan manual & a membership. This allows you to register as a Ninjutsu student by sending in your student application. Obtain through us or your local martial arts shop a black uniform with a white belt. You do not need to have tabi shoes, (some do, some don’t). Over time you will need to get or make a few wooden weapons such as a knife, 3ft staff, 6 ft staff and a wooden sword. Study each move on the tapes over and over until you can do them easily just like it is on the tape. Most students take about 3 months at each kyu level, achieving their blackbelt in 2 1/2 years of dedicated study. If you are athletic or already have martial arts experience you may go faster through the levels keeping in mind that the basics are the foundations that you build your Blackbelt and above training on. This Course was carefully crafted over 7 years to give you a natural progression of material. These are REAL ranks and must be earned with very hard work and perseverance.

HOW DO I TEST FOR RANK?

Testing is simple. Upon becoming a registered student we provide you with a list of what techniques to demonstrate while being filmed on video tape. Send in your video test and an upper level blackbelt instructor will carefully review and grade your skills, give you great feedback inspiring your improvements in the areas needed. We’ll mail your certification for 9th kyu to1st kyu ranks. The blackbelt test must be done in person at a semi-annual camp, seminar, tai kai, dojo or private appointment with one of our many IBDA instructors. This is a real blackbelt and we want your day to be special! Click on Rank Testing to go to that section for more details.

CAN I STUDY THE COURSE WITH A FRIEND?

It is fun to have someone you can share this art with. Each of you will inspire each other’s growth. Understanding this we designed a plan where you and a friend can share your training at a reduced price. It is all described in the Shodan training manual.

CAN I REALLY LEARN WITH DVDS INSTEAD OF AN INSTRUCTOR?

Of course having an instructor helps you and we encourage that. But instructors are often hard to find. So why wait for one. First, the DVDS are your instructor, teaching you in your home or dojo in a step by step way. You can slow motion the instructor and practice the move until you learn it. No intimidation of a class. Go at your own speed. And do it when you have the time. Second, we encourage you to find training partners or an IBDA Bujinkan school near you when you feel you are ready to take your training to a new level. For you we have created a unique and very effective written feedback system that really works. We know because it produces results! People that have taken this course are now very respected instructors. See the success stories page. http://blackbeltcourse.com/success-stories/
