Date founded: 16th March 1977

Brief History:

Ninpo Goshinjutsu Mu Te Jinen Ryu is a complete martial art training that was developed in 1977 by Soke Bo Munthe 10 Dan. Mu Te Jinen Ryu is the study of Budo and how it applies to modern living.

The meaning of the words Ninpo Goshinjutsu Mu Te Jinen Ryu are the following:

Ninpo – the deeper form of ninjutsu

Mute – empty hand or Munthe

Jinen – a natural mind

Ryu – method, school

Goshin – self defence

Jutsu – technique, art

A question often asked is what differences there are between Goshinjutsu and Ju Jutsu. This question cannot be dismissed with a simple explanation. The primary difference, as the Goshinjutsu practitioner eventually will find out, is that Goshinjutsu is a natural minded self defence system, which basically is ninjutsu. It is of course influenced by Bo Munthe Soke's point of view, both ethically and in budo. He regards it as a form of martial art with its roots in the feudal ninjutsu practise, but adapted to modern society demands for self defence. The philosophy of The Five Elements, Godai, is also included as a very important part of Ninpo Goshinjutsu.
