Like most people interested in martial arts I have studied several different disciplines, from Judo and Karate as a child. Then Tae Kwon Do in my teenage years until I discovered the Bujinkan Budo (武神館 武道) in 1990.

My Bujinkan Budo journey began back in my home town at a mere 16 years of age, under the tutelage initially of Ian Britton, then Chris Pearce, until work took me to Reading in 2001 where I continued my training under Jim Jones at Bujinkan Reading Dojo. I achieved my Godan (五段 - 5th Dan) in 2015 from Peter King Dai-shihan (大師範) Ku-gyo Menkyo / Ju-godan (十五段) of the Bujinkan dojo, as awarded by Hatsumi Soke. In 2016 myself and Hadrian took over tutelage of the club and have been teaching there since.

Meet the Instructors

Instructor Hadrian Parry

I studied several martial arts including Judo, Shotokan Karate and Lau-Gar Kung Fu before training in Bujinkan Ninjutsu under Simon Gaunt in the Isle of Man. I have subsequently trained under several instructors including Phil McNulty, Jim Jones (founder of the Bujinkan Reading)

I was awarded my Shidoshi (五段 - 5th Dan) in July 2016.

Whenever possible I train with Peter King (Shihan or 15th dan) who is internationally recognised and is one of the top instructors in the world.
