The Mission

To create an elite of warriors, BUSHI, Modern Samurai, example of virtue.



BUSHI Tactics, shouting "Let's figh the Darkness together!",  fights to preserve and disseminate ancient warrior values, making them functional for the present and preparatory for the future. Our mission is to create BUSHI, modern Samurai, men and women of honor who will be able, in the present and in the future, to inject the values we bear into society, and protect the weakest. A vaccine capable of halting the decline we are witnessing in the West.


We believe that strong cohesion and sharing of common ideals and values is the most effective means to achieve success, a conscious and balanced development of society. Change is possible, but it must start with each of us.



We are creating a model for future generations, bringing back honour, respect, loyalty and integrity to live. 

Through the opening of schools and academies around the world, a combination of ancient and modern combat systems will be released, aimed at the creation of BUSHI, «Modern Samurai», weapons professionals, warriors united by a common code of conduct and training, the Bushido.

Frantic modernization and globalization has led human beings to focus on the quick learning of combat disciplines. While creating excellent fighters, that discipline, spirituality and rectitude belonging to the patterns of the past has been lost.

BUSHI Tactics strives to preserve and disseminate ancient warrior values by combining them with the practice of the most effective modern combat systems. A fusion aimed at completeness, continuous improvement in the pursuit of perfection, respecting ethics and morality.

The aim is to create men and women of honour, making our contribution to the Society and participating in the creation of a better World.

Time Travelers


"The Modern Samurai is a time traveler, he must move easily between the past and the present, he must know how to fight with ancient and modern weapons but the unbeatable and immovable spirit of his spirit will depend exclusively on remaining strongly attached to his origins, traditions, disciplines and rites ".

(Taken from the book "SHUGENDO - The mystical powers of the Kitamura", written by the founder, Manrico Erriu)


The founder's idea is clear: "an individual can consider himself a modern warrior, a BUSHI, combining the practice of ancient warrior disciplines with the most modern and effective systems of armed and unarmed combat, as well as respecting the BUSHIDO code of ethics" »The development of the right mindset is the priority and indispensable aspect for the construction of complete warriors, equipped with skills and qualities such as: spirituality, determination, search for perfection, precision, aggression, concentration, achievement of the goal, sense of belonging, loyalty , zanshin and harmony;


You are trained to fight, with any weapon and in any situation and condition.


The creation of this training system stems from the field experience of its founder. The development of the right mindset is the priority and indispensable aspect of the system.

The Japanese warrior mindset confers and inculcates in the practitioner skills and values such as: spirituality, determination, pursuit of perfection, precision, aggressiveness, concentration, achievement of the goal, sense of belonging, loyalty, zanshin and harmony

The modern combat system represents the maximum expression of effectiveness in the field of counter-terrorism and protection. The two mindset together develop unparalleled skills.

The fusion between these two realities creates a unique and extremely effective approach to life and combat. 

During the various project phases we will select instructor candidates who will be instructed to disseminate the system in their country of residence.
