Shoto Tanemura Soke
Shoto Tanemura Soke (Grandmaster) is truly a unique individual. He possesses unparalleled physical capabilities even to this very day. His Legendary Martial Art skills are truly phenomenal. His organizations, the Genbukan World Ninpo Federation and the Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei, are the foundations upon which his teachings begin.
Seeing Tanemura Soke perform his techniques and even feeling them will not give you the complete picture.
Although everyone can enjoy a picture by a great artist; only another great artist can truly begin to describe what sets the great master’s 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 Soke.
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 Soke 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.

Seen in the picture to the left is Grandmaster Tanemura working with his son, Shihan (Master) Koutaroh. Koutaroh Shihan 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, as well as Menkyo Kaiden (full transmission) in several Ryuha (Traditional School).
Koutaroh Shihan’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 his Taikai (International Gatherings) throughout the world.
