Singapore Ninjutsu is proudly part of the legendary Bujinkan Ryuko Dojo in the United Kingdom. Nachum Kaplan, an Australian, opened Singapore Ninjutsu upon moving to Singapore in 2007.
Nachum has been training for 20 years and holds a 5th degree black belt and has a Shidoshi licence (teaching licence) from the Bujinkan Hombu Dojo in Japan, where our art is headquartered.
He remains a loyal student of Bujinkan Ryuko Dojo founder Shihan Keith Porter and trains in Japan with Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi and other Japanese masters at every opportunity.
Jordan Wong knows exactly what it takes to earn a black belt at Singapore Ninjutsu, being the first person to have done so. He has 9 years experience, carries the rank of second degree black belt and has a Shidosh-ho licence (teaching license) from the Bujinkan Hombu dojo in Japan.
Tong Hui Wen, who holds a third degree black belt, also knows what it takes, being one of the first two women to earn a black belt at Singapore Ninjutsu (she also holds a black belt in taekwondo!). She has been training for 9 years and has a Shidoshi-ho licence (teaching license) from the Bujinkan Hombu Dojo in Japan.
Our training involves using natural body movement to strike, to apply locks and to throw and then to use a variety of weapons.
Ninjutsu is taught today as part of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu and the Bujinkan schools are among the few remaining today that have not been transformed into sports so there are no competitions or competitive influences in our training.
We train in a fun, supportive environment in which we help each other learn and enjoy each other’s success.
Nine martial arts schools, which are from ninja and samurai traditions, form the basis of our training. The nine schools of the Bujinkan are:
Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu
Gokkyo Ryu Kosshijutsu
Koto Ryu Koppojutsu
Shinden Fudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu
Kukishin Ryu Taijutsu
Takagiyoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu
Kumogakure Ryu Ninjutsu
Gyokushin Ryu Ninpo
Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu
