David J. D'Antonio

The Bufukan as it is known today was created in 1994 as the Bushi Kai Ninpo Dojo by Soke D'Antonio as a way to pass on the teachings of the Koga Ryu Wada Ha  style of ninjutsu.

Soke D'Antonio adopted the name Bufukan or "house of the warrior wind" in 1997 to describe his interpretation of both Iga and Koga stlyes of Ninpo, of which he is a master of both.

Soke D'Antonio began his martial arts training in 1978 under Soke Harou Oyama and Ni dai Soke Fred Barnes in the art of Koga Ryu Wada Ha ninpo. Soke D'Antonio would often train anywhere from 6 to 10 hours per day with his teachers and no less than 3 hrs per day. Training 7 days per week was mandatory. Soke D'Antonio became the iemoto (inheritor) of the system after 11 years of training with these men.

Soke was given the sacred Keppan  (blood oath ) at the age of 9. After becoming iemoto ,Soke began the study of other styles of ninjutsu to include Iga related systems. Soke remains true to his Koga lineage ( which stems from Soke Seiko Fujita)  to this day and maintains it as the basis of his teachings, favoring it over the other systems he has studied. Soke D'Antonio currently holds the grade of Judan kuro obi or 10th degree black belt in ninjutsu/ninpo. Soke has also studied Tae Kwon Do, Aikido and gung fu.

Soke D'Antonio is a certified reiki master and incorporates this into his teachings at the Bufukan Hombu Dojo.

In addition to his work in the martial arts (which includes a published book and several magazine articles) Soke has worked on private security details (as the director of operations) for various celebrities and private citizens. Soke D'Antonio is the co- founder and board member of the International Ninjutsu Soke and Masters Association, a member of the World Black Belt Bureau, and the International Combat Martial Arts Union. Soke maintains a very close friend-ship with the honorable Sato Ryu and is a friend and associate of Soke Yo Sato. Soke D'Antonio has also taught free martial arts classes to underprivledged inner city children.
Soke D'Antonio is a certified private security specialist and has worked for various companies as a loss prevention manager. Soke has also worked as an investigator specializing in video survailance.
Soke is a professional photographer...but maintains it as an enjoyable hobby and truly loves nature photography.


Soke D'Antonio instills a sense of discipline and honor in each of his students and teaches them the following principles: Loyalty,honesty, courage, accountability, commitment, dedication, discipline.
