This wiki is part of my slow web attitude. Take your time exploring it. Ninjutsu of the takamatsu den is vast, so vast that it is probably the most extensive martial art that I know of. So a few minutes tour of the site are only a preliminary. I tried to make the structure clearer, but as you see from looking at the side RSS, new articles are written weekly.
More then 1500 Ninjutsu techniques are arranged according to Ryuha, type of injury caused, name or type (Joint locks, throws etc.). Moreover, together with our ongoing systematic documentation of Takamatzu den kata, we started documenting, at November 2012, our daily Ninjutsu training lessons from the main AKBAN dojos at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Ramat Hasharon.
How you can use the AKBAN wiki?
The top of the page are Ninjutsu techniques dissected by type: Joint locks, throws, movement, kicks, etc. Two videos and then a list of links. This is done so that you can glimpse into the category without making this page load hundreds of video thumbnails. Because that's what you have here - more then a thousand, free Ninjutsu techniques. You can also find this in Hebrew - (פורטל נינג'יטסו).
Scroll below and you can watch Ninjutsu Kata of every documented Ryu (e.g. Kukishin ryu techniques). Again, you can dig deeper using the list of the Ninjutsu techniques in the category. At the very bottom you can watch some current combat research from the AKBAN dojos.
A personal note
I took great care to video original material. On this wiki you can see more then a thousand video techniques and more are filmed every week by me. I know, some of the material is rather old and outdated, from the time I just started to document - the video camera I had was basic and my editing skills also. The quality is better now with many videos that are current, concise and, I believe, very helpful for a beginner and advanced practitioners of our art - Ninjutsu.
I am leading a decades long project of filming and documenting Ninjutsu and martial arts that intersect with my practice. This is a grassroots project, with no business model to finance it. Any criticism and additions will be integrated to the wiki. Please mail me or use our twitter, facebook or youtube to suggest techniques and perspectives
