ZEN AND JAPANESE BUSHIDO

THE MORALITY OF BUSHIDO

16C Japan

ALWAYS

REMEMBERED

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.

Kindly visit the page.

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.

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.
