WHAT: BuYu Camp 2013 is a gathering of training groups, students, teachers, and interested persons who practice the martial art of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi: Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. 

Many Shidoshi instructors from around the country—and often from around the world—participate and teach!  The weekend is led by Jack Hoban. The Camp sponsors general training sessions and a variety of breakout workshops.  There are opportunities to buy and sell training equipment and exchange information; but, the BuYu Camp is mostly  about training.
