Elise begun to show interest in the ninjutsu martial art in 1982, because of Massaki Hatsumi, who had just become famous to the West. She attended martial arts lessons by Dimitris Papanikolaou, disciple of Massaki Hatsumi, at Glyfada area for the period of 1986 – 1990. After sensei’s Pananikolaou death, Shidoshi-Ho (4 dan) Elise Elle continued to practice along with a small group of disciples, based on his teachings.
In 2010 she decides to emphasize particularly in training women Ninja (Kunoichi) and forms a strong group that earns great publicity on the greek media, even until today. The original idea came from her intention to help abused women for free, as she still does today. In 2013, Elise attended successfully the kunoichi taikai seminar on Bujinkan Ninjutsu’s secret ninja women (kunoichi) technics, held by Massaki Hatsumi in Tokyo (Japan) and recieved the respective expertise certification. From that day and onwards, she puts great effort, energy and compassion at teaching women how not to be victims of violence.
After 25 years of living like a “Ronin” and creating three Kunoichi Dojos, on the 5th of May, 2017, Elise Elle joins the Bujinkan Italia Family by becoming the desciple of Sensei Dai Shihan Enzo Rossi, who has been honored by the Japanese Emperor and holds the highest rank of +15 Dan in Bujinkan Ninjutsu.
Shidoshi-Ho (4 dan) Elise Elle’s goal at the moment is to be trained as a Kunoichi by Sensei Dai Shihan Enzo Rossi, in order to gain the 5th Dan Shidoshi and full aknowledgement, by being presented in front of Soke Massaki Hatsumi. Of coarse, her interest in the art of Bujinkan Ninjutsu never stops, while she specializes and refines herself at the women’s art of ninja (kunoichi).
Elise Elle teaches at the moment selfdefence, based on Bujikan Ninjutsu, at Melekos Health Club (Leontos 4, Argyroupolis, Attiki, Greece) in a large group of women, without excluding men, emphasizing on the specific secret practices of women ninja (kunoichi).
