Mark Roemke, 15th Dan practitioner of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu

This is Mark Roemke. I am a 15th Dan practitioner of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. This is our initial blog where I will be diving deep into discussions of this art. In this first blog, I explain in the video below a little bit about myself and the art of ninjutsu, and specifically, what the art of the ninja means to me.

I started studying martial arts when I was seven years old. I have been studying for a long time. I’ve been punched, kicked, and thrown around quite a bit. I’d love to tell you more about what I’ve learned along the way, and what gets me stoked about martial arts. Hopefully you will experience this stoke as well. 

I’d love you to come along on this ninja journey. In this blog series, I will dive into more detail about some of my favorite videos from our Ninja Training TV Youtube Channel to give you some inside perspective, background, and of course, help you feel the stoke. 

Below is the most recent video where I discuss what ninjutusu means to me.
