About the Shibu

The Shibu was born out of the desire of a core group of individuals who sought training in the arts of the Bujinkan.  Since there were no schools local to the Hickory area, the group got toether to "work out".

Realizing that trying to learn this art on our own was futile, we sought out proper instruction.  Shihan Ed Martin (15th Dan) was gracious enough to take us under his wing and provide direction to our training.

The training group makes frequent trips to Shihan Martin's school in Macungie, P.A. to continue study.

The Shibu is lead by Blake Murphy (Nidan).  Classes are held at our school in Maiden, N.C.  The times are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.

Classes are offered to anyone over the age of 14.  The only stipulations to training with us are:

1.  Be sincere in training.
2.  Read, understand, and uphold the Rules and Guidelines of the Bujinikan.

If you are interested in joining the group, you can contact us at (828) 428-4756 or e-mail us at
