Budokan has many Teachers Maaters and Students to whom we owe so much.
We have now created a permanent presence on the site, so that we can all remember who they were and be eternally grateful for the contribution they have made in the practice, promotion and dissemination of Japanese Budo.
Modern day practitioners of Japanese Budo do not include the essence of the spirit of Budo, because of the absence of the spirit of Zen. Shinto and Zen Buddhism and a better understanding of Bushido.

Video Clips are being uploaded to our Members area every week now, which will eventually cover all kata and every technique, across all disciplines and is available to all Budokan members of good standing.
They are designed to be teaching to camera videos, which quite literally, brings the dojo to you, anywhere, anytime 24/7 as all videos can be viewed on your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
You can see some of these videos on the homepage here and others will be posted up across all disciplines - just go to the appropriate pages to view.
Soon all mambers will be able to see our entire Teaching Manual in words, pictures and video - a long sought after objectivie for Budokan.
In addition, we have created a Video Room where all members can go to view video content taken of them in the dojo setting on their own page or via the pages of other members. It is available for all members to see. and compare.

Budokan is made up of a load of interesting people.
And they are all doing something - it seems - most of the time - outside of the martial arts, that is.
So we want to record those times here on the Budokan website for all of us to share on a page dedicated to them.
