  2. One of the highlights of my recent trip to Japan was training with Duncan Stewart. We were fortunate to be able to schedule some extra classes with Shihan Duncan, which went a long way to understand Hatsumi Sensei and Nagato Sensei’s movement. It was like training with a new set of eyes, and making the connection from basic fundamental movement to more advanced techniques. Learning the distance and angles from Duncan’s class was like learning the alphabet and words of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, and then going to Soke or Nagato Sensei’s class later on was like watching the poetry in motion. I would sincerely advise those who are visiting Japan to seek out Duncan Stewart and train at the Shin Gi Tai Ichi Bujinkan Dojo.

  3. On our last trip to Japan in April of this year, we had the chance to hook up with Shihan Duncan Stewart. I have known Duncan for the last few years now. I have always found that we have a lot in common. I was happy to have been able to train with him 3 times during my trip. The best thing for me, was he was able to make me better understand my taijutsu. Being a Nagato Student myself, there were many things I did but did not know why. As well as, there were many things I was unable to figure out. After training with Duncan, I was able to better understand my own training. I strongly suggest that anyone that has the Saino Kon Ki to train with Duncan will do so when they are in Japan.

  4. Training with Shihan Duncan Stewart’s was a pleasure this past April in Japan. Duncan’s clean, crisp and strong movement helped me to both dissect and understand better movement that was being shown by both Shihan Nagato and Soke. Duncan effectively demonstrated and taught movement that reinforced very fundamental aspects of budo taijutsu. With both humor and precision, he shared perspectives that offered great insight into our art and how to bring our own training to the next level. Aspects of angling, timing and control that were explored have allowed me to change my own movement for the better. When in Japan, if you can attend Duncan’s training sessions, do so and your training will be better for it.

    Hi there Duncan,

    We will be in Japan between the 22nd of March and the 14th of April…will you you be in Japan at that time ? I see you are very busy with traveling and seminars. It would be great to train under you and see things from another shihans perspective.

    I have recently attended a seminar in Vancouver, BC.

    I saw Duncan show the reasons of how the basic forms have so much importance to effective taijutsu. He moves in a way with precise kamae and light natural movement. I am really happy to understand a little more about how the basics of taijutsu are so important and light natural movement will only be obtained by mastering the basics.

    Thank you Duncan!!!!!
