About this pro



I teach traditional Japanese ninjutsu as taught by Masaaki Hatsumi sensei in Japan. This art is an ancient classical martial lineage (kobudo) and not a sport. There are no competitions since this is intended for real-life survival and self-defense regardless of age, gender or physical size. Although an ancient art, the art has stayed alive even in the twenty-first century and the techniques can be applied to modern-day life seamlessly.

I enjoy watching students grow and learn this beautiful art that is so useful and intriguing. A deep art that one can keep getting deeper into throughout a lifetime. I can help you reach your goals. I take a special interest in my students and I do my very best to make sure they learn to move correctly without bad habits. I feel my students are a reflection of me. When they look good I look good. I began training in this art in 1999 and I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of what's there. I find that there is learning in teaching and teaching exposes new layers for me to explore.

I received my go dan (5th-degree black belt) in Japan in 2014 and thus became a Shidoshi (certified instructor) of  Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (Ninjutsu).

    His experience, patience and upbeat attitude are second to none. Ulises has a deep understanding of the material he’s teaching and is great at transmitting that to a student. It’s a real pleasure to work with him.

  • Francis Karagodins

    Ulises is instructive and patient. He adjusts the training to the needs of his students and encourages their progress. After training with him for four years, I still train with him sometimes and stay in touch with the other students.

    Ulises Beato is a master in Ninjutsu with a deep understanding of many aspects of the martial art and Japanese culture in general. Ulises is a very patient and thorough instructor who emphasizes the importance of learning the fundamentals of Ninjutsu while also keeping the students interest by demonstrating and sharing many of the more advanced techniques. Bujinkan Beato Dojo would be an excellent choice for both younger beginner students as well as for those with previous martial arts experience.

    My 14 year old son has been training with Bujinkan Beato Dojo for two months and I can already see the benefits. He has suddenly grown up a little, and is stepping up to be responsible for all kinds of little things. He has started to get himself up in the mornings, he sets alarms so he knows when to leave for class, he is stretching every opportunity he finds, and is generally more helpful at home. He is in the middle of high school tours and his practice has helped him to navigate that stressful process. He loves how he feels from being physically active. My kid is not sporty but that doesn't mean he doesn't like to move. Ulises Beato is a great role model for my kid. His classes are so well rounded. My kid has expanded his interest to include Japanese history, food, art and culture. I couldn't be happier for him. His life is better for it. I highly recommend Bujinkan Beato Dojo. Now all I need, is to get my daughter to start.
