Known for his contagious positive energy and enthusiasm to live life to the fullest, Sensei Mark Roemke has been passionate about martial arts since before he started formal training at age 7. A 15th Dan in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu he also studied extensively in numerous other martial arts including Enshin Itto Ryu Battojutsu (the art of sword drawing and cutting), Kenpo Kung Fu, DeCuerdas Eskrima, Seibukan Jujutsu and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
As an instructor, Sensei Roemke has a gift for conveying the knowledge and skills acquired through decades of enthusiastic study and training. Those who know Sensei Roemke will tell you that he is always stoked with a true passion for learning, sharing and life in general. Most recently, through a cooperative effort with a community of gifted mentors who share Sensei Roemke’s belief that connecting people, especially children, to nature is key helping them reach their full potential, the 18 “lost” skills of the Ninja are now being taught at Pathways Dojo and in our abundant natural surroundings.
My son Henry never misses a class, this place is full of wonderful, talented people. We are blessed to have them in our lives!!!
My 6 year old son has been participating in the dojo classes for 6 months and is so incredibly hooked! It's the perfect blend of play and discipline. I am grateful to have strong and compassionate male role models in his life. He started with the ninjutsu and now is adding jujitsu because he can't get enough!
