No. Ranking has to be done in person by a certified Bujinkan instructor. We recommend that you connect with your nearest Bujinkan dojo and ask if they will provide rank testing. Note: requirements for rank vary by dojo. All topics covered in our courses will be relevant for ranking at any Bujinkan school.
Why do some teachers offer rank online?
Some Bujinkan instructors offer ranking via online platforms. However, this is greatly frowned upon within the Bujinkan community and the Japanese. We caution associating yourself with instructors who rank online as a general practice. It’s not worth harming your reputation to get a certificate.
