AKBAN: Only 300 fighters, 12 years before a black belt, more then a 100 black belts since 1986.
This website: Thousands of martial arts’ techniques in our extensive and evolving wiki.
These are the results of a simple moto: No shortcuts.
We train the way we like, completely absorbing ourselves in Japanese Bujinkan Ninjutsu techniques while fearlessly researching. We don’t care about politics, political values, belt systems or Mc-dojos – what matters to us is dojo time, heart and earth, that’s it: One principle – No shortcuts.
This site is a part of our Slow web philosophy. In it you will find more then 5000 pages, fitness routines, techniques and videos – take your time, return to re-read, mail us (akban [at ] akban.org) for perspectives and whatever. Scroll down, and on this page you can read the last week’s dojo news, ordinary description of next session’s techniques most of the time, because that’s what we focus on – plain old practice.
This site is our dedication to what we love: the warrior culture, and all this is free, our respect to you.
The Academy’s headquarters is situated in Tel Aviv, and another office is in Jerusalem. We have graduate instructors all over Israel, working in small, sparring oriented, dojos. Our recent dojo addition is in Toronto, Canada.
It is not easy to say what makes the Akban community so robust; is it the Israeli situation, the top notch fitness? Who knows? We believe part of it is the special kind of students who choose training with us, students that get involved in incredible achievements and continue training for a lifetime. As we said, we are not sure, but we love the atmosphere, you can catch the scent of it in many of the images in our galleries or come train with us. Tel Aviv is a fun city.
There are never guarantees that we’ll make a warrior from every new student, the only guarantee is that whatever we do, we do it with our extensive knowledge, our heart, taking no shortcuts, the way we see it.
