WHAT: BuYu Camp is a gathering of training groups, students, teachers, and interested persons who practice the martial art of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi: Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. Buyu Camp is a great way to network and stay inspired in your Bujinkan training. If you are an instructor, this is a chance to get the "continuing education" you need to hone your skills in a cooperative atmosphere with other instructors from around the Bujinkan World.
If you are a "first-timer" — welcome! No prior experience is necessary. You'll enjoy the cooperative and friendly atmosphere.
The weekend is led by Jack Hoban. The Camp sponsors general training sessions and a variety of breakout workshops. There are opportunities to buy and sell training equipment and exchange information; however, the BuYu Camp is mostly about training.
