Joel Gruber – Shidoshi
Joel began training in the Bujinkan in 2002 under Shihan Andrew Beattie in Sydney. In 2007 Joel first travelled to Japan to train with the Japanese masters and in 2009 he passed the godan test in Japan under Oguri Sensei.
Following passing the godan test Joel started a training group where he practices the fundamentals of the Bujinkan. At his class, Joel’s focus is on the basic movements of the Bujinkan with an emphasis on using efficient body movement and maintaining structure. Joel now travels to Japan regularly to learn from the Japanese masters as well as attending classes with other instructors and attending seminars from travelling instructors. He openly recommends that students attend seminars to get different perspectives.
Joel is a certified member of the Bujinkan Shidoshi-kai and is licensed to teach Bujinkan.
