    Warriorschool: The cult in the Bujinkan's backyard.

    Warriorship. What is is, who is it and why is it? It's a cult based on pseudo-native American mythology set up by Jeffory Prather. The following blog articles deal with a personal brush with the cult by a former bujinkan member, and detail some of it's inner workings. Makes for interesting reading.

    It's interesting how this cult has sprung up within the bujinkan. It's because it's a "martial art" and "martial arts" (especially one that claims to teach ninjitsu) are very cultish in the first place. Who's ever heard of a boxing cult?

    LOL irony--did you see the part about how the WarriorSchool cult guys went way overboard with the table ceremony? They wanted people to pray and thank plants and stuff as if they were Apaches, when they should have been lovingly bowing to a table with a twig on it as if they were feudal Samurai.

    Imagine the nerve of those people!

    The type of chap drawn to the Bujinkan will always be susceptible to this crap. When I was young and naive I used to train in it. Some of the lads there effectivly worshipped Hatsumi and refused to see through the psuedo-yoda bit. Only a short step and boom you're praying to rocks next to Mr Prather. :gaygay:

    There is a bujikan dojo near me where they were offering a Prather seminar about a year and a half ago. But, I don't think the pre registration was good enough for Prather to come thank god. Does anybody know if this idiot is still around and doing this bullshit?

    I did buji but I never heard of warrior school until now. Glad I dodged that bullet.

    Jeff Prather is a 15th Dan Bujinkan member as well as a former Major (as stated is his book) in the US Army. I don't know if that has changed at all since.

    I thought Hatsumi was the only 15th dan. But then he does give them out like candy, even my sensei thought so

    Hatsumi is the Soke (Grand master/Head of house hold) of the Bujinkan. 15th Dan is the pinnacle Shihan rank which you can achieve in the organization.

    I seriously need to start a cult. Who volunteers to be my "Cardinals?" (95% cut of your chapter's earning you keep, and I promise to visit once per year. Downside - LARPing.)

    This stuff was going around a few years ago. It looks like Prather has toned things down a bit lately. At least publicly. The "Warriorschool" site look like a Blackwater wannabe now rather than some Native American based cult.

    Prather apparently was an Army officer. His resume appears carefully worded to imply that he was a Green Beret in the 7th SFG, but there are some people claiming that while he worked at 7th he was not a Green Beret.

    Theres a renewed interest for some reason now over on Budoseek.
