Dai-Shihan (大師範) Ku-gyo Menkyo / Ju-godan (十五段) Ilan Gattegno, a published author and a journalist, joined the Bujinkan in November 1974, when Doron Navon returned to Israel after eight years in Japan. During the first few years at the Israeli dōjō he was assisting Doron in his classes by taking over the classes in Doron's absence. Together they formed the Bujinkan Israel association with Doron as Chairman and Ilan as Secretary. In 1975, Ilan joined the Tel Aviv University jūdō Team and in 1976 was Captain of the team, which won the Inter-University Cup that same year. He was then presented with the Sportsman of the Year Award at Tel Aviv University. In 1980, he traveled to Japan for a month and studied with Ishizuka shihan and Tanemura shihan, and met Hatsumi sensei who, at the time, was not teaching. He also practiced jūdō at the Kōdōkan in morning classes held for foreigners. In 1983 he led the Israeli delegation to the first gasshuku [training camp] in Yumoa-Mura.

Ilan’s magazine and daily paper articles were an immense contribution to the publicity of Bujinkan. His articles in Black Belt and Ninja magazines brought a huge amount of attention to the true nature of Bujinkan.

In 1983, he received Shidoshi-ho title while in Japan and has been teaching ever since. He has also travelled abroad extensively and helped form some of the most prominent clubs today.

In 1987, in the Tai Kai in London, he passed the godan test. In 1989 he was in the organizing body of the Jerusalem Tai Kai and also arranged the 1992 Tai Kai at the sea of Galilee. When Doron Navon decided to let the next generation take the lead in Bujinkan Israel, Ilan helped Moti Nativ regroup all the teachers and students in Israel and organize the first and the second Teaching Courses, under the guidance of Wingate Institute of Physical Education.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Read!
Reviewed in the United States on 17 May 2021
My copy of "It Takes a Ninja" arrived in wonderful condition. I immediately opened it and started reading as if I’d never heard of it before. The opening comments by Hatsumi-sensei (Feb 2021) caught my eye and urged me onward. The author, Ilan Gattegno (daishihan), offers insights on many topics: teaching, learning, training, reclaiming awareness, and dojo structure. Most interesting was the view behind the curtain of how Hatsumi sensei has taught us his secrets. I'm already thinking of ways to adapt some of the ideas into my classes.
