    Bujinkan dōjō (武神館道場) Sōke (宗家), Dr. Hatsumi Masaaki (初見良昭 ) has graciously agreed to act as the Honorary Principle of the The British School of Japanese Traditional Medicine. He is also head of the Amatsu Tatara (天津 蹈鞴) Hichibuku goshin-jutsu (秘致武九護身術) tradition.

    Originally, Hichibuku goshin-jutsu was taught along-side the martial arts of the Bujinkan. It draws on the ancient natural philosophies and teachings of Amatsu Tatara. In contemporary times the Amatsu Tatara Hichibuku goshin-jutsu is a comprehensive system of Japanese Natural Medicine, which Hatsumi Sōke received from his teacher Takamatsu Toshisugu (高松 寿嗣) Sensei.

    Hatsumi Sōke has been granted 'Life Membership' of the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) and honoured by the permanent inscription of his name on the 'Wall of Honour' in the Atrium of RSM headquarters building in London.

    Peter King is one of only five practitioner world-wide to have been honoured with a Menkyo kaiden (免許皆伝) 'Master Teacher's Licence', which is the most senior level of rank within the Amatsu Tatara Hichibuku goshin-jutsu from Hatsumi Sōke. Hatsumi Sōke has directed Peter to teach this art and given him copies of the full densho (伝書) documents of the Tatara hibun (蹈鞴 秘文), including the Hichibuku goshin-jutsu genri (秘致武九護身術原理)

    Peter is the principal tutor at the British School of Japanese Traditional Medicine, which runs the U.K. and international training courses. In addition to holding Menkyo kaiden in Amatsu Tatara Hichibuku goshin-jutsu, he holds Ju-godan (十五段) rank and Dai-shihan (大師範) title in the Bujinkan dōjō.

  • Advanced Certificate in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (针灸)
