Mission Statement


The mission of the Henka blog is to act as a pure source of transmission of Hatsumi Soke’s teaching in Japan.  

Hatsumi Soke is not currently traveling the world to teach his Budo and therefore, unless you visit Japan on a regular basis, or train regularly with someone who does so, it is difficult to maintain the connection. 

Soke clearly states that Budo cannot be expressed in words, and this I believe.  Soke did also state that it is important to write things down and discuss about Budo for your own training.  Therefore, Henka is a training log, or diary and a means for all Bujinkan practitioners to learn from Sokes’s teachings.
