Hoshinjutsu was developed by the late Glenn J. Morris, PhD (1944-2006), a master instructor in the martial arts, organizational psychologist, corporate consultant and author on such topics as martial arts, transpersonal psychology and Taoist meditation.
Dr. Morris trained in the martial arts for close to fifty years. He extensively studied such diverse martial arts as Jujutsu, Judo, Tai Chi, different forms of Kung Fu, Savate, Okinawan Karate, Budo Taijutsu/Ninjutsu, Boxing and Wrestling. He earned his first black belt in 1965. He taught self-defense courses in Germany while serving in the U.S. Army and began teaching his Hoshinjutsu system of meditation and martial techniques at Hillsdale College in Michigan in 1980.
On April 1, 2006 Dr. Glenn Morris passed on and left the Hoshinjutsu system as his legacy.
