Instructor

The head instructor at Bujinkan Ninjutsu Melbourne Dojos is Shidoshi Matthew Weygood (9th dan). Matthew Sensei has been training in Bujinkan Ninjutsu for almost 13 years and has been the instructor at Bujinkan Ninjutsu Melbourne Dojos for 4. Matthew sensei started training at Bujinkan Ninjutsu Australian Dojos (BNAD) under Shihan Darren Horvath (15th Dan). Matthew Sensei persevered through many physically demanding years of Bujinkan Ninjutsu training at BNAD. Many of these years  included week long, 18 hours a day live in camps, weekend long training sessions of up to 12 hours per day, and numerous week end seminars with top Shihan from around the world.

Matthew Sensei made his first trip to Japan in 2006 where Shihan Horvath introduced him to Soke Hatsumi Sensei, Shihan Nagato Sensei, Shihan Noguchi Sensei and many other top Shihan from Japan and around the world. Since his first trip in 2006, Matthew Sensei has traveled to Japan numerous times per year to train and receive the direct transmission and feeling from Soke Hatsumi Sensei and the top Shihan.

In 2008 Matthew Sensei became one of the top instructors at BNAD where he regularly took classes due to Shihan Horvath now living full time in Japan.  

In 2010 Matthew Sensei moved to Melbourne and was instructed by Shihan Horvath to start Bujinkan Ninjustu Melbourne Dojos so he could continue to develop in his martial arts training. Three years on Bujinkan Ninjutsu Melbourne Dojos is the number 1 Bujinkan Ninjutsu school in Melbourne with a direct line of access to Hatsumi Sensei through Shihan Horvath and through Matthew Sensei.

Matthew Sensei debriefs with Shihan Horvath on Skype after every Hatsumi Sensei class. This is so he can stay as connected to Hatsumi Sensei and Shihan Horvath as possible. This connection really does make Bujinkan Ninjutsu Melbourne Dojo a very unique dojo. It is safe to say that, the information coming out of Bujinkan Ninjutsu Melbourne Dojos, is the most up to date information on Bujinkan Ninjutsu you will find anywhere in the world (other than Japan Hombu dojo).
