Grandmaster (Soke) Shoto Tanemura is truly a unique individual. He possesses unparalleled physical capabilities, even to this very day. His Martial Art skills are truly phenomenal. Seeing them and even feeling them will not give you the complete picture. His organizations, the Genbukan World Ninpo Federation and the Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei are the foundations upon which his teachings begin.

Although everyone can enjoy a picture by a great artist; only another great artist can truly begin to describe what sets the great Masters apart from the rest of us. And only another Master will fully understand what is being explained.

The more I learn, the more I am truly in Awe of Tanemura Sensei.

I have come to realize that Soke Shoto Tanemura is a true priest of the Amatsu Tatara Bumon and Shumon Hibumi (Amatsu Tatara Martial and Spiritual Scrolls). He has been blessed with a way of knowing things that is extremely rare. Not only does he receive wisdom directly from Heaven; he can also see through the veils of illusion here on earth. He can tap into knowledge and powers not available to most of us.

Listening to Tanemura Sensei speak of everyday life is as exciting and illuminating as watching him perform his Martial arts. He has the ability to put things into their true and proper prospective.

Unlike some martial arts instructors, Tanemura Soke treats his personal students as part of his extended family and is constantly nurturing us. Although Tanemura Sensei is truly a World Class Grandmaster of Ninpo, Jujutsu, Kenjutsu (Japanese Sword Fighting), Bojutsu (Japanese Staff Fighting) and Baguazhang, his first and greatest love is Ninpo Taijutsu.

Grandmaster Tanemura working with his son, Shihan Kotaro
Seen in the picture to the left is Grandmaster Tanemura working with his son, Shihan Kotaro. S hihan Kotaro is one of the youngest true Shihans in the world of Martial Arts. He holds the rank of Hachi Dan
(8th Degree Blackbelt) in both the Genbukan and the KJJR. Although he is only 25 years old, he has 25 years of experience in the Amatsu Tatara Bumon and Shumon. He was literally born into it. It is an integral part of his life, just like breathing.

Shihan Kotaro's natural talents, martial knowledge, willingness to teach and good heart make him an excellent instructor. He teaches regularly at the Genbukan Honbu Dojo. He also assists the Grandmaster on many of his Taikais throughout the world.

Very Sincerely Yours,
Gary Giamboi, Kyoshi, Shibu-Cho
