Bio:
Sensei Kevin Atkinson started studying classical Ninjutsu (Getsu Shimi Ryu) privately under Master Himishi Omata, in 1975. By 10 he had earned his first Black Belt, and at age 15 tested for his Shidoshi License. After a short time Sensei found that teaching classical systems in a commercial setting didn't work well together, so spent the next few years absorbing many other systems not normally integrated in Ninjutsu; eventually earning teaching credentials for American Kenpo, and Tai Chi. In 2003 Sensei began to modifying his root system into Ku Kage Te Taijutsu (9 Shadow Hands), incorporating and blending elements of American Kenpo, Kosho and Shorin Ryu for methodical instruction platforms, and Tai Chi for fluid movement, balance, conditioning, and reduction in typical movement based joint injuries. In the following years Sensei refined his teaching style and tailoring abilities by working with many challenged and special attention students, as well as his dozens of select, "invitation only" classes. These included persons with weight issues, severe joint limitations, and those affected adversely by physical and/or sexual assaults.After all these years of practice using a personalized approach, Sensei is confident he can help anyone with a desire to learn regardless of their difficulties; whether physical, mental or emotional.

Fantastic!!!

Jigsaw Mats



I recently ordered 49 of these to set out a 7x7 meter mat away for my renovations. I was initially concerned that there were no border pieces in the photos and when I inquired of customer service they couldn't say for sure. Going on faith I ordered anyway and am happy I did. The mats were delivered quickly and in great condition. To alleviate my concerns EACH mat square comes fully bordered so you end up with more border than is required, but this leaves plenty of room to screw up when you trim the border pieces for their placement on the edges. The remaining scraps I found will make good training toys. Kudos again to Zengu for offering such a great product. My school now looks amazing and the space is awesome to train on.

CA Schools
Rubber Foam Nunchucks



In CA, licensed schools may own Nunchaku for training purposes, and store them for their students. Also I'm curious and a little concerned that even your foam nunchaku are listed as no ship to CA. Can you help me solve this issue?

Very Decent

Student Black Karate Gi



I wanted a decent student uniform for my school, that didn't break me if I included them in enrollments, and this exceeded my expectations. It's lightweight, but doesn't feel flimsy like some other student weight uniforms. Holds up well, during general classes, and light grappling. Easy to wash, and holds the color well.

Rubber Foam Nunchucks

Would it help if I sent you the highlighted text of the law that allows you to ship me the tools I need for my curriculum?
