Hello all. Old Bujinkan member from the early 80's here. I'm wondering if anyone has information on any groups associated with or training under Shihan Toshiro Nagato?

I'm looking to get back into the training and Shihan Nagato is the instructor I'm most interesting in training with. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

That's sorta what I'm asking. Does he even teach in America? I'm not sure where or when he'd have a class I could attend.

Jannig-Nar,

It certainly would help others help you if you provided a little information about where you live. Your profile is completely blank.

Does your interest in "Nagato training" mean that you would be willing to fly ANYWHERE in the US, Australia or Japan to train with one of his "students"? (That's where most of them live)

There are a few guys out there who can do justice to Nagato-sensei's style. Where precisely are you on this great big globe called Earth?

On the west side.

Just kidding.

I thought I'd filled out my profile...it must not have taken when I crashed my browser while filling it out. I'm in the Chicago, Illinois (USA) area. I may be moving out west though, to New Mexico, sometime soon.

Would I be willing to fly to Japan to train with Nagato Sensei? Absolutely!

Would I be able to do so? Not at the moment. Financial and job considerations make that very, very difficult if not impossible. At least, for extended periods. Weekend seminar type training I could possible pull off.

I was hoping he had a group somewhere in the USA that he visits like they did in the old Bujinkan days. But now I'm hearing that the Shihan are not teaching outside of Japan anymore. Is that permanent, or just a temporary thing?

No matter what you mean by "permanent", the rule lasts till Soke changes his mind. Coming over to Japan is much more realistic, I think.

hi,
i am a student of Nagato sensei's, i just left japan in dec '03 and lived there for a couple years.
i recomend him highly!
do you have any specific questions about him?
the only other student's of his that i know live in japan,
i have one friend who is also his student who just opened a dojo in PA. here's his website: www.tanukibujinkan.com

i don't know any other of nagato sensei's students in the states, but it's worth the money and time to go to japan!
if you have any specific questions, just ask away!

Nagato sensei is a gentleman in every sense of the word and you will absolutely benefit in your training with him. The same can be said of all the shihan that train with Sensei. You will also benefit greatly from seeing James, don't waste the opportunity that is right "next door". It's a strange thing about opportunity, it is constantly changing and if missed it is gone.
