Bashaw's Martial Arts Academy

Kosho is not about fighting, but making peace with your enemy.


Daniel: So, karate’s fighting. You train to fight.
Miyagi: That what you think?
Daniel: [pondering] No.
Miyagi: Then why train?
Daniel: [thinks] So I won't have to fight.

Tai Chi Research 



Kuroshinobi= "dark ninja" or "dark spy".

Ryu= a martial tradition

Shinobi-do= "way of the ninja"

Kuroshinobi-do Shinobi Ryu short

Kuroshinobi Ryu is a neo-ninjutsu martial arts style that is based off of the factual, historic ninja of Japan. Kuroshinobi Ryu bases its art off of the conceptual ninja of Japan. It is neither Iga nor Koga, but it is all ninjutsu. We use the older term of shinobi and shinobi-do; we translate –jutsu to mean, "-jutsu is a technique or a craft", and -do to mean "the way", such as the "way of the ninja or shinobi". We feel to use the term -do signifies our intent to learn more than mere techniques, but also to learn, experience, and practice the path of the ancient shinobi.

We consider our ryu to be neo-ninjutsu in nature since we have no true lineage to any particular family, region, or clan. Kuroshinobi Ryu takes the concepts, philosophies, and training of the ancients and brings that into the 21st century blending old and new, in turn being politically free of the prejudice currently in ninjutsu.
