Anaguma Dojo Goals:

  • To create a positive and fun learning environment
  • To delve into the mysteries of the ancient Ninjutsu traditions
  • Practical self-defense

The guiding principles of our dojo:

  • “The essence of all Martial Arts and military strategies is self protection and the prevention of danger. Ninjutsu epitomizes the fullest concept of self-protection through martial training in that the Ninja art deals with the protection of not only the physical body, but the mind and spirit as well. The way of the Ninja is the way of enduring, surviving, and prevailing over all that would destroy one.” Toshitsugu Takamatsu, 33rd Grandmaster, Togakure Ryu

Therefore, our training encompasses:

  • Both armed and unarmed methods of self-defense
  • Learning classical weapons of Japan (Swords, Naginata, Shuriken, etc.)
  • Learn how to use everyday items (car keys, pens, belts, etc.) as a weapon
  • Yearly group trips to Japan to train with the Grandmaster and other Japanese Shihan
  • Yearly seminars at our dojo taught by high ranking teachers living in Japan

We welcome good people at all skill levels. All people of good character are welcome.

A Message From Duncan Stewart


As a friend of Lance, I’d like to pass on to him my best wishes for having established a new Anaguma Dojo in the San Diego area.

I hope that all students wishing to continue studying Bujinkan Budo, maintain a strong connection with Lance. In order to truly follow the Bujinkan, one must follow the rules and guidelines and any other training philosophy that Soke teaches to the best of their ability.

Lance maintains direct contact with the honbu in Japan and also with those who train in Japan constantly in order to continue training correctly and with the right heart.

The heart of the budoka is the most important thing. Please remember this.

My best wishes to everyone in their training.

Again, please support Lance in any way you can to keep the true heart of the Bujinkan alive in San Diego.
