Is there a book about Dux Ryu Ninjitsu that I can use if I want to train?
Aside from the autobiography of Shidoshi Dux, The Secret Man, there is no literature available for Dux Ryu Ninjitsu. The style is taught from father to son, from sensei to student, in the tradition of the Koga Yamabushi Ninjitsu system originating hundreds of years ago in Japan.
Where can I find a dojo if I am interested in training in Dux Ryu Ninjitsu?
