Zen Nihon Koden Budo Renmei

The Zen Nihon Koden Budo Renmei is an international society of traditional martial artists, dedicated to maintaining and preserving the principles of koden (old traditions) of authentic Japanese budo.
Our goal is to promote and preserve the precepts of Bushido, which are as follows:
  1. Rectitude or Justice. Bushido refers not only to martial rectitude, but to personal rectitude: Rectitude or Justice, is the strongest virtue of Bushido
  2. Courage
  3. Benevolence or Mercy
  4. Politeness
  5. Honesty and Sincerity
  6. Honor
  7. Loyalty
  8. Character and Self-Control
