I am trying to gather some information on the history of the Bujinkan in the US as far as who were the 1st 10 Godan's and when were they awarded.
I know Mark Hodel was the 5th American and I think Mr. Vandonk was the 9th. I can assume that Steven was 1st. Who were the others. Also does anyone have any information on Taro Yoshikawa and his affiliation with the Bujinkan in the 80's

yea I knew Charles was somewhere in the 1st 3, I figured Bud and Jack were also right around the same time. I'm not too sure after that though. I keep trying to get Charles to write a bio about himself and his history in martial arts. I think it would be a very interesting read. Do you know much about Yoshikawa Papa-san?

Combat Magazine: Is it true that you were the second American, after Stephen Hayes, to pass the 5th dan test and thus become a Shidoshi instructor of Ninjutsu under Masaaki Hatsumi?

Jack Hoban: Yes.

CM: Does that make you America's number two Ninja?

JH: No.

CM: Why not?

JH: My taking of the test was just a matter of timing. Both Bud Malmstrom and Charles Daniel passed the test, basically, within the same time frame. So did Sven Eric Bogstatter of Sweden, I believe.

Sorry I can't help you about Yoshikawa, but if Charles would, he could. He tends not to involve himself very much now but was a major help to many of us learning in those 1980's and 90's

yea we have talked about Yoshikawa before, I was just curious is anyone knew anything about his history in martial arts and in the Bujinkan also. Its really no big deal I'm just trying to learn more about the "Orginal" Bujinkan from the 70's 80's 90's. I think its good for everyone to go back to their basic's and study the beginnings of where we all came from. I'm sure their are lessons to be learned still.

Hatsumi sensei appears to think so as well, judging from the theme he has established for this year's training.

Thank you Mr. Seago do you happen to have any information on who the 1st 10 Godan's in the US were or any information about Taro Yoshikawa?
