Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō
The Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō (International Budō Specialty School) is a reconstitution of the Budō Senmon Gakkō (nicknamed the "Busen") that was originally established in Kyōto, Japan by the Dai Nippon Butoku-Kai in 1911 and operated until near the end of World War II.
The original Busen operated under the auspices of Japan's Ministry of Education, and was the most prestigious school for training budō instructors in Japan. Unfortunately, it was later coopted by Japan's Ministry of Defence, which led to it being permanently closed at the end of World War II.
On 01 January 2011, to mark the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the original Busen, the Nippon Budō Seishin-Kan established the Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō to serve as the 21st century online equivalent of the original Busen. Our goal is to provide students of the Busen with the same quality and depth of instruction that was the hallmark of its namesake.
