Welcome our new shidoshi (instructor) – Bryan Kirk!

Kizen Dojo's newest Bujinkan instructor, Bryan Kirk

Bryan passed the sakki test (test for 5th dan and instructor level) in Paris, with Dai Shihan Arnaud Cousergue. For many years now, the test has been administered by 15th dans around the world with our Soke’s approval. (And just for your information, he passed first time and it was superbly done!)

Having instructed our Wednesday class with Doug for a few months now, and having spent many years of dedicated training, we are more than proud to welcome him into the ranks of Shidoshi, a Bujinkan specific title for instructors that is achieved once the 5th dan test is passed.

Time and time again, Bryan has gone above and beyond, showing duty and dedication to the club and the art. He is always volunteering his skills to help promote and run classes. He has travelled to train in Japan and Paris, and attended many other seminars as well as regular training over the years. We wish him all the very best.

Well done, Bryan, and “gambatte”.
