Basically, the Bujinkan was "let go out in the woods and play around with technique and have a good time.", where the Genbukan is basically "let just train hard and fight." So they appraoch the techniques differently. Genbukan tends to be a lot harder and a LOT more structed. If you meet a 5th Dan in the Genbukan you know he was a X amount of skill. Bujinkan is very relaxed so you get Genbukan-like Dojos and "too deadly to spar" dojos. Unforunately, the latter is more common.
