Happy Birthday Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi - from Bujinkan UAE

December is always a special month in the Bujinkan. The Grand-master of the Bujinkan - Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi celebrates his birthday on the 2nd of December :)

Our Soke (grand-master), besides being  a highly accomplished martial artist, doctor and healer, writer, actor, and artist is the founder of Bujinkan System which encompasses nine ancient martial art traditions of feudal Japan. This system integrates physical,mental and spiritual elements for personal growth and development. He is the heir and inheritor of these nine traditional schools of Ninjutsu and Samurai-jutsu and he can also be described as the "last living ninja".

Every year in December his students from all around the world traveled to Tokyo for the Dai Komyo Sai (DKMS) training sessions and celebration of his birthday. I had the luck to be part of DKMS 2010 and it was an exhilarating experience. This is the first year (2013) that there will be no DKMS. 

As our Soke (grand-master) turns 81, we at the Bujinkan UAE, decided to honor him with one more opportunity for you to train in his art. I think he would like this birthday gift! :)

Happy birthday Soke!
