About KNBK

The KNBK  – Kokusai Nippon Budo Kai is an international organization dedicated to the preservation and continuation of the teachings of traditional Japanese koryu and gendai martial arts. Our primary focus is the preservation of the teachings of Masaoka Kazumi / Miura Takeyuki / Shimabukuro Masayuki of the Seito Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iai Heiho through its direct transmission over 21 generations. The KNBK also preserves the teachings of Shindo Muso Ryu Jojutsu and the associated sogo bujutsu, Onno Ha Itto Ryu Kenjutsu, and other modern forms of Japanese and Okinawan martial arts.

The organization was established in 2007 by Hanshi Masayuki Shimabukuro at the request of the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai and Hanshi Miura Takeyuki Hidefusa.
