About Glen Levy

Glen teaching in LAIt is relatively hard to box myself into one title or job description, I’ve been blessed throughout my life to be many things.

I’ve been a fighter, martial arts instructor, stuntman, healer, actor, fight choreographer, comedian and international speaker.

If it is necessary to pick one to encompass what I love to do, then I guess I would simply label myself as a teacher.

I am definitely a person who likes to test theories and concepts out for myself, before accepting them as ‘gospel’. Sometimes I agree and implement them into my life and teaching, and other times I purge information that no longer has meaning to me.

This is a great reminder that no matter how long I have been a teacher, I will always be a student. This ideal I give to you.

I hope my blog will inspire you to constantly test your limits and abilities, while retaining a sense of wonder and excitement about your potential in life, hence my choice of tagline for this blog:

‘When we stop learning, we start to die.’

      I was wondering if you could, post more on the
      impact vs momentum. I have studied martial arts for around 8 years. most of which i have studied shito-ryu karate. and your impact vs momentum does not go with what i have learn about power. I would really like to learn what it is. please and thanks 🙂

    • Karma Zangpo says:

      The science behind your movements is stellar. Would love to meet you one day in the future. I’ve studied Martial Arts for awhile and had numerous injuries- some incredibly severe (hairline fracture on tailbone, third Lombardi misplaced, shoulder spurs and compound fracture on right arm). Think your teaching style is spot on from what I’ve researched about you.

      Sincerely,

    hi glen! thats cool, i mean how you think of yourself as a student. I read ninjitsu/ninjutsu books to learn. i also watch your videos on youtube. if you ever do a seminar in san diego [my home town at the moment], or los angeles, let me know, I’ll come out and attend. see you soon!

  3. Shane says:

    Hey Glen, saw you on fight science. I live in LA and I have heard that there are a lot of fake ninjitsu schools out there. Do you know of any good ones in California? If not do you know of any good books or something online? Thanks man.

    • Glen Levy says:

      There are some great schools in Cali. If you look for Bujinkan budo taijutsu you should find a school in your area.

      Cheers,

      Glen

        Glen, I have not been trained in any martial arts. I have always admired it though, I do plan on learning one day. Besides that point, I was wondering if you teach ninjitsu? I read that you are the best in the world, and I am amazed. If by any chance you are a teacher, I would love to learn from you.

Also this eye contact stare,how do you train to watch and then strike if need be.I have problem stareing people out,before i crumble.. I know i need to train but hard on your own and working away in the week.Cheers ped from MANCHESTER . ENGLAND.

  6. octavio says:

    hey glen, im octavio. hey i had one question, see im really into ninjutsu im 17 rite and i want to start training in the martial art. the thing is, im currently 6 foot and 250 pounds, do you think the art would fit me. i know i can loose the weight, i weight 180 about a year and a half ago when i was in boxing and i could also do backflips and everything, i just got really lazy. the thing im worried about is my height, i have really good balance but would it effect me in any other way in ninjutsu. always can use the info,thanks alot

  7. Hi Glen, just asking if the art of Ninjutsu that you practice is related to Bujinkan or other source… I´ve been practicing martial arts since young and I would like to train in a real ninjutsu dojo…

    Have planned to expand to Central America (Guatemala for example?, I live here…)

    Domo Arigato Glen san…

    Hello Glen,
    I’m trying to find a good school in illinois can you help me, and what should i look for when checking out ninju schools
    Thank you very much

  17. Hello Levy-Sensei,

    I’m a 5th dan in Koga Hai-Lung Ryu Ninjitsu under Master Ashida Kim and am also the U.S. Top Representative of the Toushinkai School of Koka Ryu Ninjutsu certified under Sensei Rodolfo Turolla and Soke Shunichiro Yunoki. I saw you on fight science do demonstrations and I want to say that you’re indeed awesome!! I loved the one with the plum flower post exercise and also the fukiya from concealment. I am wandering, are you available for strictly Ninjitsu seminars maybe in Texas?? I am associated with a large school here in Victoria, Texas and maybe we could work out something!! Also, what style do you teach of Ninjutsu?? THanks!!

    • Nik Pribulsky says:

      I’d kill to learn Ninjitsu. I live in PA. Where can I find a place to learn? I’m learning Karate from Grand Master Tom Joerg. And I enjoy every minute. However Ninjitsu seems to me like the absolute superior form of combat, self-protection, the techniques look like they could subdue any opponent. Like any fight could be won. And the I guess “mysterious power” the ninja possess really makes you wonder. They’re not the average human. Or Martial Artist for that matter. I want to be like that.

  18. Richard says:

    Hi Glen,

    Thank you for being a inspiration for everyone.

    Hello mr. Levy my name is Gurbinder i first heard about you in 2008 on fight science. I love martial arts of all kinds. I was wondering if you have any of the fight science episodes you were on on dvd? Or any ninjutsu dvds if you have done any. I have great respect for you and what you do and i think you are one of the greatest martial artists i have seen in a long time and would love to train with you if i am ever so lucky. Thanks alot for all the great work you have done and look forward to seeing more videos.
