My name is Doug Wilson, originally from the US (CA). I have been studying martial arts for more than 30 years, 27 of those years in the Bujinkan. I have spent 15 of those years in Japan training at the Hombu Dojo. I often act as an interpreter for the Hombu Dojo and have co-translated the above books by Hatsumi Soke, released by Kodansha International. I feel that the time is right to provide my acquired information to the Bujinkan public about training in Japan. I guess I can say from my unique position and close proximity to Soke, I can provide a perspective that most can not. Here, I will post what I have recently learned, translated, experienced, and interpreted as well as been told to say. I am a student of Hatsumi Soke and this is MY perspective. I hope to provide an insight to the dedicated practitioners of Hatsumi Soke’s Budo, the Bujinkan as well as all practioners of warrior arts.
