We want to thank Matsumoto Sensei, 7th dan Kyoshi, for visiting Tokubukan this past Saturday. Matsumoto Sensei was able to give a mini seminar on kata, as well as conduct a guide practice with the dojo. We are grateful that Sensei had time to visit the dojo while on his travels back to Japan. We wish him safe travels and look forward to his return soon to Florida.
About Toku Bu Kan Dojo
The true winning is not by power, trickery nor anger, because winning using these things will create feeling of revenge or feeling of unhappiness, however wining by true virtue (Toku) is true winning, even your opponent will thank you when defeated by you and respect your quality.
Therefore we are using this Virtue (Toku 徳)for the Dojo’s first kanji, and for the second kanji we use Bu ( 武) as in Budo. And the last kanji is Kan ( 館) as in group.
(徳武館) Tokubukan has a deep meaning and is giving us a goal to strive for.
