Opening of the Art of Ninzuwu School: Fellowship of the Ghost Dragon Samurai

The Fellowship of the Ghost Dragon Samurai is a registered with Yudansha International and DOJO-Academy of the Martial Arts, DOJO-Registration #8561-1. It is a school dedicated to the preservation and cultivation of Ninzuwu-Shinto practice and instruction.

The Fellowship of the Ghost Dragon Samurai is also the vehicle, or dojo, by which those who practice the esoteric martial art of Ame-no-Ukihashi qualify gain skill and qualify for rank. The history of the samurai is very well-known and their influence on modern-day martial arts cannot be overstated. The Fellowship makes use of samurai symbolism to teach esoteric truths. This is very similar to how freemasons make use of masonry for allegorical purposes and instruction on spiritual transformation.

The order consists of those who are advanced in the practice of the Art of Ninzuwu and accept such as a culture and a way of life. Yuki-onna, is the ruling kami of the Ninzuwu current, known more appropriately as Ame-no-ukihashi-hime-no-Mikoto.

According to the Art of Ninzuwu teachings, Ryujin Shinko, the dragon god faith, provided a means of self-transformation that allows one to cultivate abilities that surpassed the normal human condition. Those who experienced such an initiation were mentored by the tengu, and some among these were considered to be tengu themselves.

Historically, the tengu were said to live in forests and trees of cedar and pine. During the winter, when the spirit of the trees were said to be asleep, the Yuki-onna would protect the forest. This is where the legends began about her taking the life of those who were trying to fell trees.

Ultimately, The Fellowship of the Ghost Samurai seeks to preserve the knowledge of an esoteric system of transformation and martial arts that existed during the Jomon period, commonly known as the Art of Ninzuwu.

Initiation into the Ame-no-Ukihashi is one of the ways in which the Ninzuwu Current can be accessed. The term “ghost dragon” possesses the same gematric value as the term Ninzuwu:

Ninzuwu in English Gematria equals 768
Ninzuwu in Simple Gematria equals 128
Ghost Dragon in English Gematria equals 768
Ghost Dragon in Simple Gematria equals 128

Aside from the gematric similarities “ghost dragon” is a reference to the tengu and would indicate a person of such consciousness. In regards to the term samurai, Wikipedia states:

“According to translator William Scott Wilson: “In Chinese, the character was originally a verb meaning to wait upon or accompany persons in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean “those who serve in close attendance to the nobility”, the pronunciation in Japanese changing to saburai.”

It is interesting to note that the original meaning of the term samurai was in regards to “those that serve.” The English word minister has a similar meaning. In Ninzuwu Culture the “Ghost Dragon Samurai,” or Ninzuwu-Samurai, are those who are dedicated to the service of this form of consciousness.

The Structure of the Fellowship of the Ghost Dragon Samurai is found in the Ame-no-Ukihashi Syllabus, which consists of seven grades:
