Bujinkan Shiro Kuma
1984-2016: 32 years of Bujinkan Martial arts with Hatsumi Sensei
I began training in 1984, and the Bujinkan has been developing a lot.
Hatsumi Sensei told us that it counts now 400000 members. That's a lot. But in the old days the Bujinkan was small and Hatsumi sensei much more available. Classes with 25 people were thought to be "too crowded!", how wrong we were. Last March 2016, we were around 300 for every class with Sensei!
As I have been there for a long time, I thought this small website would help you to look back into the past and to understand our art a little better. I wanted to share with you, Bujinkan students, the major moments of my interactions with the Bujinkan, and mainly with our mentor Sôke Hatsumi, in Japan and all over the world, during all these years.
My name is Arnaud Cousergue but everyone knows me as "Shiro Kuma", the polar bear.
So here is the Bujinkan story of Shiro Kuma.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you will enjoy it!
