Randy Weekley has spent close to 30 years training, mastering and teaching
the martial arts. He began his martial arts career while studying for a
degree in criminal justice. As he traveled around in pursuit of a career
in law enforcement, he was able to sample many different martial arts before
discovering Ninpo Tai Jutsu. This was to become a life changing discovery.
During his years of training he was a personal student for 17 years of both Sensei
Chadwick Minge and Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura of the Genbukan Ninpo/Ninjutsu
Traditions, where he learned the arts of the Ninja, Jujutsu and many other family
lines of martial arts. During his last trip to Japan, Kyoshi Weekley tested for
and received his certification and title of Kyoshi, (Master Teacher), from Soke
Kyoshi Weekley resigned from the Genbukan organization in 2004, but continues
to advance his training in the arts of Ninjutsu, Jujutsu, Mixed Martial Arts,

Firearms. He has trained on 5 of the 7 continents, teaching and training with
schools in Japan, Thailand, China, Mexico, Australia, England, Spain, Greece,
Jamaica, Bermuda and across the United States.
Kyoshi Weekley opened his first dojo in Parker, Colorado in February of 1992.
He continues to teach at this school and at his facility in Hedgesville, West Virginia as
well as travelling the world teaching defensive tactics, combatives, firearms,
and personal defense. Kyoshi Weekley is dedicated to educating people about the
great benefits that the martial arts have to offer, and to helping martial artists
and martial arts instructors become better at what they do. To this end, he has
