Ninpo US and the Bansenshukai Dojo proudly offers the unique opportunity for you to become a Ninpo and Jujutsu instructor. This is not a get to black belt fast scheme. Participants are required to train hard, study often, and dedicate themselves to being a professional martial artist. This program can be undertaken by anyone with the desire, fortitude, and resolve to put in the effort to learn.
How Does It Work?
Each participant is handled on a completely customized basis, depending on location, availability, and other unique variables. This program isn't for everyone. Participants are held accountable, both by themselves and by our staff and instructors. You must be willing to put in the work and effort. There are no short cuts to success, but there are side doors. There are no shortcuts because you must be willing to put in the work and gain necessary experience. However, our unique learning methodologies can show you the side door, helping you to learn faster.
The Instructor Program is designed for people that want to help at the dojo, teach martial arts, or even have their own training group and dojo. We use private lessons both in person and via the internet, custom coaching calls, private lessons, seminars and more. In addition, participants are required to train at two in-person events a year, or can opt to host a training event in your area.
More Than Just Teaching...
The Instructor Program isn't just about teaching martial arts, it's also a leadership program. We'll teach you not just what to teach, but also how to teach. In addition, you'll have the opportunity to learn how to set up and run a traditional martial arts dojo. You aren't just teaching, but will be part of our martial arts family and have ongoing support. If you have the desire and dedication, we want to hear from you!
How Do I Start?
In order to provide the best quality of instruction, we limit the number of new participants in our Instructor Program. To apply for this program, begin by filling out the application to the right and submitting. A representative will contact you to discuss your goals, give you more information, and see if you are a good fit for the program.
How long will it take to get to black belt?
It depends. Each person brings their own experience, work ethic, and skill. At the end of the day, a belt means nothing compared to skill and experience. For the sake of an answer, we can say that our average regular student, not in the program, generally takes 6-7 years to get to black belt. However, in this program we offer much more one-on-one training and specialized training to help supercharge your training. In addition, if you have experience in our martial arts or a similar one, you may progress faster. Our testing requires at least an 80% to pass an exam. If you can pass the exam there are no time requirements.
Can I start my own training group?
This program is designed for both active students at one of our dojo, and distance students looking to learn our arts and/or run a group. Our goal is to help you start your own group if that's your goal. However, you must demonstrate proficiency in your own skills, as well as, how to teach before we allow participants to run a group under us. It isn't required to reach black belt before starting a group, but all of our instructors adhere to our guidelines of running a group with integrity, honesty, and maintaining their own continuous training.
I don't want to have my own group, is the Instructor Program right for me?
It depends on your goals. We have many participants that are a part of the program because of the leadership skills it teaches, to supercharge their own training, or simply because they like helping at their home dojo. One of the things we're very proud of is the flexibility of the program.
