About the Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō


The Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō ("International Martial Arts Professional School") is a blend of the ancient and modern.  It is essentially an online reconstitution of the famed Busen, at which many of the foremost Japanese martial arts instructors of the 20th century trained. It is dedicated to training its students to be the foremost instructors in the classical Japanese martial arts of the 21st century.  The primary focus of our online coursework is the bun (classical education) of bun-bu ryōdō -- the Dual Way of the Pen and Sword -- to ensure that the martial arts instructors of tomorrow are as thoroughly versed in the culture, philosophy, history, kinesiology, and artistic qualities of the arts they are teaching, as they are in the techniques.
