Where you'll be

The main venue will be Kyoto's own "Butokuden" in Kyoto Budo Center. It is the oldest Japanese martial art Dojo existing in today’s world. It was built in 1899 and miraculously survived the WW2 devastation. In 1996, Japanese government officially recognized it as a nation's important cultural asset. Please be notified that in case the Dojo is occupied by other groups, we will be using the sub-Dojo within the same property of Kyoto Budo Center.
