Senior Instructor - Jeremiah Munoz (Shidoshi)

Shidoshi Jeremiah has been training for over 15 years in traditional Samurai and Ninjutsu martial arts. Being led to a website in his early 20s, he sought out authentic teachers of the ancient Ninja arts which led him on a journey across the United States, and Japan. Having trained with some of the top masters from around the world Jeremiah Sensei has a unique blend of teaching traditional kata forms, with a modern application. He is the head instructor and the DojoCho (Chief Operator) of YTMA.
