Jamie Daiken, am the owner, Chief Instructor and founder
of Way of the Warrior Bujinkan Dojo, which I opened
in 2006. I had just received my Shidoshi-ho license
and was eager to share all of the amazing lessons and
experiences I had experienced. In 2009, I moved the
dojo from Hamilton to Stoney Creek and continue to teach
and train regularly at this permanent location.
Studying the nine ancient schools of the Bujinkan is
our primary focus. Each class, we examine principles
and practice various skills and aspects of Soke's teachings
as well as Shihan Van Donk's teachings, to further our
own understanding, and to help you learn and understand
this wonderful art.
I have been a personal student of Shihan Van Donk for
over 7 years, and have learned so much more then I really
ever set out for. I currently hold a fiveth-degree black
belt in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, and a black belt in
Dynamic DeCuerdas Eskrima. Among other certifications,
I am a licensed agent of the National Security Alliance,
I possess a Master Level Reiki Degree and I have participated
in and won several International Weapons Tournaments.
I have been to Japan and I have trained with Soke and
many of the top level Shihan in the Hombu Dojo. This
is something that we all need to do, and more.
In a time where many dangers constantly surround us,
every advantage a person has will help them achieve
a higher level of self preservation. Basic principles
of self defence, and how to protect oneself in environments
ranging from a busy store, to an empty parking lot,
are brought to you in a simple and light-hearted teaching.
Knowledge, combined with awareness and confidence could
save your life. We will make your world a safer place.
