ShihanTaylor holds membership in the Bujinkan shidoshi-kai as an instructor under the Bujinkan Taka-Seigi banner. Shidoshi is the proper term for a licensed instructor in the Bujinkan dojo. Chris passed his godan test (also known as the sakki test) in Sept 2008 at the hombu dojo in Noda-shi Japan and his judan was awarded by Hatsumi soke in 2016. As members of the Bujinkan Taka-Seigi Dojo, we are honoured to have Shihan  Phillip Legare provide us direction regarding the teachings of soke Masaaki Hatsumi, grandmaster of the Bujinkan dojo in Noda-shi, Japan.

Mr. Taylor began training in the Bujinkan dojo in 1984 and has traveled numerous times to Japan to further his understanding of the art. He trained under shidoshi Scott White of Surrey, BC and various shihan who train regularly in Japan with the grandmaster. He opened the Abbotsford shibu (club) of the Bujinkan Taka Seigi Dojo in January 2005.

Please be aware that not all people who profess to be teaching the Bujinkan arts are legitimate instructors. The possession of this type of card identifies a person as having the minimum of an ongoing relationship with hombu dojo in Japan and is certified to award menkyo or licences to students that will be honored world-wide. Ask your prospective teacher if they possess their shidoshi-kai membership card!
