The Core Ninja Techniques are found in the kihon happo. The kihon happo, also known as the fundamental or basic 8, are the very heart of ninjutsu.

All the basic principles are buried in these kata, or models. Even if you are shown the kata it takes the guidance of an experienced teacher to explain the principles. It is the principles that are important, not the movements themselves.

In Ninja Core Techniques book I show you exactly what these principles are and how to use them.

For instance, the first principle is to “use what they give you“. When the attacker punches, kicks or grabs you they are giving you a gift, the solution to their defeat. You could learn the moves in the kata, but without a skilled teacher to guide you through what the kata is trying to teach you the moves just become mechanical. And the mechanics will only take you so far.

Core Ninja Techniques and the accompanying video series is included in my Ninja Online Mastery membership.

My Ninja Online Mastery membership teaches you:

* How to use exactly what the attacker gives you to defeat them
* How to build in your defenses in every move you make
* Sneaky ways to have the attacker put themselves in a joint lock
* And so much more

You can have access to these secrets and many more when you activate your Ninja Online Mastery membership.

And then, train, train, train!

Ganseki Nage: “Throwing large stones”

Most martial arts teach you to get out of the way and then find a way to kick or punch. One of the best ways to win is to get in so close that you are virtually safe.

If you are this close, then get even closer. The best place to be is where Continue reading »

Te-Makura: Musha Dori variation

NOTE: THIS IS A VERY DESTRUCTIVE TECHNIQUE. USE EXTREME CAUTION!!!

Core Ninjutsu Technique lesson 7

Core Ninjutsu Techniques lesson 7


This is the response if the attacker counters (reverses or escapes) the oni kudaki.

If the attacker escapes the oni kudaki his arm will most likely straighten at the elbow. This will cause the shoulder lock to be ineffective.

If this happens, place your hand Continue reading »

Hon Gyaku: Ura Gyaku variation

NOTE: THIS IS A VERY DESTRUCTIVE TECHNIQUE. USE EXTREME CAUTION!!!

Core Ninjutsu Technique lesson 4

Hold their wrist with the pinky finger up to the ceiling and the thumb down to the ground.

As the attacker turns to hit or grab, they will cause the lock to increase in effectiveness.

NOTE: Hon gyaku has a small effect if the attacker’s arm is straight. As they move toward you and they bend their elbow, the lock increases exponentially.

The pain comes on fast. SO GO SLOW AND BE CAREFUL. THIS COULD BE A VERY DAMAGING TECHNIQUE!!!

The principles are Continue reading »

Ura Gyaku: “Inward wrist twist”

NOTE: THIS IS A VERY DESTRUCTIVE TECHNIQUE. USE EXTREME CAUTION!!!

Core Ninjutsu Technique lesson 3

Core Ninjutsu Technique lesson 3

Ura Gyaku is an inward wrist twist. It is also the name of this kata.

Wrist locks are an effective tool in your defense and attack. Ura gyaku is an inward wrist twist that will cause the attacker to move forward to relieve the pressure.

If done with great force it will shear the tendons and brake the wrist joint. I teach my students to develop connection and control to win. Rarely will it be necessary to break the wrist.

The principle in this kata is Continue reading »

  • Mushin
  • Zanshin
