Franklin Canyon Bujinkan

The Franklin Canyon Bujinkan (BujinkanFC) was established in 2012 by Sensei David Greenberg, after decades of training and teaching in Japan and abroad.

After several years teaching in the United States, Shihan Greenberg returned to Israel and entrusted the continued dojo guidance to Dante Dionne under Moti Nativ's international dojo family tree. Bujinkan Franklin Canyon travel regularly to Japan and abroad to continue train with the Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi, the Japanese Dai Shihan’s, and other chief instructors around the globe.

BujinkanFC instructors are licensed by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, the head of the international Bujinkan martial arts organization based in Japan.

In 2017, a second training group was established as Griffith Park Bujinkan (BujinkanGP) to provide Griffith Park Bujinkan members with an additional location to practice in preparation for training in Japan.

Both Franklin Canyon Bujinkan and Griffith Park Bujinkan are managed by Dr. Dante Dionne and assisted by Shidoshi Issac Wolf.

We are fortunate to have the patronage of several international and local Bujinkan Shihan with collectively hundreds of years experience in this art. Firstly, placing our dojo under the Moti Nativ family tree, David Greenberg Sensei continues to provide support and guidance to our group. Eran Conforty Sensei, who resides in the Los Angeles area, has been a supporter since the beginnings of the Franklin Canyon dojo.
