Established January 2011:
The new Kokusai Budō Senmon
Gakkō was established in January 2011. Our
opening was timed to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the
original Budō Senmon
Gakkō ("Martial Arts
Professional School", often abbreviated as Busen) which operated
in Kyōto, Japan from
1911 until the beginning of World War II .
Even though the ban on martial arts
training in Japan was lifted in the early 1950s, the original
Budō Senmon Gakkō was never reopened after the war. Now,
some 70 years after the closure of that noble institution, its
spirit and mission are being restored and made available to
martial artists worldwide, thanks to the vision and dedication
of our founders, led by Leonard J. Pellman Sensei.
If you dream of becoming a martial arts instructor, or if you
are already an instructor and want to significantly enhance your
knowledge and skills in order to stand among the world's foremost
professionals, then you owe it to yourself to consider training
at the Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō. We
encourage you to review our Admissions
information and contact us with any questions you may have.
