Budokan is a single and multi-discipline Traditional Japanese Budo organisation.
We have a history going back 60 years we wish to share with you.
Come and help us build a vibrant, inclusive Traditional Japanese Budo Community open to everyone, wherever you are and whatever discipline you follow.
This is a completely automated Budo portal that opens the way for Dojo Leaders to reach a wider audience of potential students using the most up to date camera technology and software, that will allow, video on demand and live streaming of classes taking place including instructor and student interaction from our Teaching Platform.
IF YOU RUN A DOJO - GET IN TOUCH - [email protected] - AND WE WILL DO THE SAME THING FOR YOU ON YOUR DOJO PAGE FOR ALL TO SEE AND SHARE.
GET EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO EAT FOODS THAT ARE FULL OF ANTIOXIDANTS EVERY DAY - LIKE FRUIT AND VEGETABLES - TO BUILD AND MAINTAIN A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM ALONG WITH A RANGE OF SUPPLEMENTS THAT DO THE SAME - LIKE VITAMINS C AND D, ZINC AND MAGNESIUM
If you don’t regularly suffer from colds and flu-like infections, are active, do enough exercise, get a good nights sleep, are not suffering from disease and you can manage stress in your life - then the likelihood is you have a strong immune system.
BUILD AND MAINTAIN A STRONG IMMUNITY ALL YEAR ROUND
WE BELIEVE TRAINING SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE PLACE WITH QUALIFIED INSTRUCTION IN A DOJO.
STUDY AND LEARNING NOW ALSO TAKES PLACE ONLINE - 24/7 - LEADING TO MORE TRAINING AT HOME.
BOTH WORK BRILLIANTLY TOGETHER.

And you, of course, will be able to see what your fellow Dojo Leaders are all doing too and share in that common knowledge.
