We want to thank Takahashi Sensei, 6th dan, for visiting Tokubukan on this past week and Register Sensei. Takahashi Sensei was visiting our dojo to meet with Auvert Sensei and Jose Contreras, members of Team Venezuela, for the 16th World Kendo Championships later this year.
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.
