Budo – The way of life

Budo, consisting of the Japanese words “bu”, meaning warrior, and “do”, meaning path or way, is the Japanese term for the code-of-conduct associated with martial arts for resolving conflict by peaceful means, exercising determination, self-restraint, and mutual respect. The foundation of our educational curriculum is found in the values and ethos inherent to traditional forms of martial arts, including Karate, Judo, Aikido, Kendo, and more.

Although these Martial Arts vary greatly in terms of technique, they often share common values and concepts, namely patience, tolerance, harmony, mutual respect, friendship, flexibility, self-restraint in the exertion of force, and more.

Our approach is derived from the notion that a person who practices the values of Budo in his daily life becomes a more rounded, balanced, and better individual, someone who respects and contributes to his surroundings.
