Ninjutsu is an ancient Japanese martial art that has been practiced for more than 1300 years. The art is popular around the world with masters hailing from Japan, United States, Brazil, Canada, Israel, United Kingdom and more. Ninjutsu is based on techniques utilized by the Ninja and the Samurai class in Feudal Japan, used in warfare. The techniques were previously only passed on through demonstration and word of mouth transmission.

NinVolution is part of a group of schools along the east coast of the U.S. currently in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Florida. Senpai Josh has been training in Ninjutsu for two years with a total of 7 years of martial arts experience between Tang Soo Do, Karate and hand to hand combat training from the United States Army. Senpai Josh’s direct teacher is Sensei Omar Gilani of Yamajiro Ninja Academy in Vienna, Virginia. We are all students under Renshi Mark Bramble of NinpoU.S., who has been training in Ninjutsu for over 25 years.
