Dedicated to: The Preservation and Dissemination of Traditional Japanese Budo and Bujutsu
Sakura Budokan Was Established In 1989, Kingston, Pa 18704.
Traditional martial arts are quite different than the ‘Modern eclectic forms” of sport karate or MMA that have become popularized today. The emphasis in Traditional budo is placed on studying combat tested techniques that were developed by actual warriors of days gone by. The traditions and techniques of the founders of the arts are preserved. Unlike “Modern eclectic forms,” where the techniques have been altered in order to conform to the modem instructors’ idea of what combat might be, Traditional Budo retains the original attitude, philosophy and technique. At Sakura Budokan Traditional martial arts are presented through six different martial arts. Self-defense, character building, healthy exercise and meditation infuse you with confidence, self-esteem, longevity and peace of mind. All Traditional martial arts will imbue these attributes. Yet each martial art expresses its unique approach to achieving these goals. The founders of the martial arts created different roads “DO”, to reach the intended pinnacle of martial arts training, self-actualization. Each art is a separate road to success
No one knows you better than you. The martial arts can be grouped as internal or external, hard style or soft style, empty hand or weapons art. The choices are yours. Classes are offered at various times to suite a variety of schedules. Most students train approx. two times per week. Male and female students train together as well as beginner and advanced students. Private lessons are available although not recommended for beginning students. Tuition will vary according to the number of arts studied.
