Bud Malmstrom is a highly ranked American instructor in Bujinkan Taijutsu, what in the 80’s was just called Ninjutsu. The art has been re-branded to weed out the Ninja wannabes who flooded their schools. At least thats my take on the matter. While I believe that some Bujinkan practitioners are the biggest “offenders” regarding the confusion and over utilization of the “Warrior” title; in this video Mr. Malmstrom makes some very insightful points about martial arts, philosophy and Warriorship. What I find interesting is in his statement at the end of this video. Malmstrom mentions “living AS a Warrior”…not “being a Warrior”. I believe that this is an important distinction that many people are failing to understand.
