HOW IT WORKS
Content is uploaded to the private Budokan Channel currently on You Tube or any other video platform we choose to use.
We take it from there and place it on a secure section of this website in the relevant section of each discipline or on the Dojo pages of the content provider.
Only registered teachers, instructors , dojo leaders and their students have access to this content, via a login process using a username and password provided via a payment gateway.
Each content provider (ie teacher, approved instructor and/or dojo leader) benefits from a small subscription or video on demand process to access their content, as this site reaches a critical mass.
All content is the copyright of each provider.
All content provided is credited to each provider.
There is no cost to any content provider at this time - UNLESS THE BUSINESS MODEL OF THE VIDEO PLATFORMS CHANGES
In practice, anyone can sign up and become a subscriber by paying a small monthly or one off download fee, allowing access to the whole site and its content 24/7.
All proceeds are allocated according to the subscription pricing structure agreed with all content providers
You've just learned Pinan Shodan for the first time and you can't get back to the Dojo for a week.
And yoiur Sensei has said "practice at home".
Well - now you can in words, pictures and video with audio.
Plus you can check out the Kata sheet all in Japanese and learn them. Also follow the Kata move by move in pictures.
And the same with the fist form of Seitei Iaido
Its all new and Budo students want the reassurance that they can go home, go online and learn the form again.
Not only that - they can also take a look at how to hold the sword properly on one page and learn the names of all the parts of the sword on another.
What about the basics of a Karate punch, with the instructions of how to do it and your Sensei actually showing you on video - which you can access time and time again.
Bringing your dojo into your room whenever you want to.
And when it comes to weapons - the devil lies in the detail - which you don't always "get" in the Dojo.
Well....here you can 24/7.
With Training Tips on video to boot.
As you can imagine, a resource like this will prove invaluable to you the Dojo Leader and all your tudents.
This content will be accessible to dojo leaders and their students day in and day out 24/7, comparing what they are doing with what they are viewing.
As we can then get current teachers and dojo leaders to take video of themselves teaching and or live video of classes taking place somewhere which we can all have access to.
In this way the learning platform for students becomes a teaching platform for teachers, instructors and dojo leaders.
And if you have this type of resource as a tool and back up - it makes teaching to camera really easy and this is where video platforms like SKYPE AND ZOOM come in.
Inevitably, all content providers will be able to teach direct to students based anywhere in the world.
Thsi can be done in groups of course - but is so much more effective on a one to one basis with this type of library back-up.
As a Dojo Leader you know the entire syllabus of your discipllines.
They could be in paper form, or part of a powerpoint presentation and now you can take your syllabus digital.
Where you used to have books - now you can have images, audio and video of eveerything you teach in one place and available to all your students to access at any time.
Where you used to have a Dojo Fee for attendance in the Dojo - now you have a Learning Fee for wherever Learning takes place - in the Dojo or Online.
