    Bujinkan Dojo (武神館) Soke (宗家) - Dr Hatsumi Masaaki (初見良昭 ) has graciously agreed to act as the Honorary Principle of the British School of Traditional Japanese Medicine. He is also head of the Amatsu Tatara (天津 蹈鞴) Hichibuku Goshinjutsu (秘致武九護身術) traditions.

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

    Hatsumi Soke has been granted 'Life Membership' by the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) and has been honoured by the permanent inscription of his name on the 'Wall of Honour' amongst other luminaries in the Atrium at the heart 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 Goshinjutsu from Hatsumi Soke. Hatsumi Soke has directed Peter to teach this art and given him (& fellow Menkyo Kaiden - Maki Takeuchi) copies of the documents of the Amatsu Tatara medicine and Hichibuku Goshinjutsu.

    Peter is the principal tutor at the British School of Traditional Japanese medicine, which runs the U.K. and international training courses. In addition to holding Menkyo Kaiden in Amatsu Tatara Hichibuku Goshinjutsu, he is a Dai Shihan (大師範) and holds Ju-godan (十五段) (the highest level rank) in Bujinkan Dojo Happo-hikenjutsu (武神館八法秘剣術), he was also the first Bujinkan black belt (初段) and the first Shidoshi (士道師) in the U.K.. He has been honoured with the 'Bufu Ikkan Sho (武風一貫)' & 'Shi-tenno' (四天王) of the Bujinkan Dojo awards by Hatsumi Soke.

    Peter also holds a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in ‘Sports Science & Japanese Budo Studies’ from Middlesex University and is a:-
