This card not only preserves the honor of the Bujinkan members, it indicates you are part of a larger whole–one whose members come together with warrior hearts to better themselves through training and friendship. It evinces the glory of warrior virtue, and embodies both loyalty and brotherly love.
  8. The tradition of the Bujinkan recognizes nature and the universality of all human life, and is aware of that which flows naturally between the two parts:
    • « The secret principle of Taijutsu is to know the foundations of peace.

A 15th Dan is considered as a true Shihan
Those not upholding the above-mentioned guidelines shall be forced out of the Bujinkan.

Teaching in Dōjō

  2. – To know that the path of man comes from justice. Know that the way of men is justice.
  3. – To renounce avarice, indolence, and obstinacy. Forget the heart of greed, ease and relying on others.
  4. – To recognize sadness and worry as natural, and to seek the immovable heart. One should regard both sadness and malice as natural laws, and just gain the enlightenment of an unshakable heart.
  5. – To not stray from the path of loyalty and brotherly love, and to delve always deeper into the heart of Budo. In your heart, never leave the ways of loyalty and filial piety, and aspire greatly for the ways of the pen and the sword.

Observing the 5 rules above is the law of the Dōjō.
