All martial arts in the Budo Kenyu Kai are modern systems with traditional content. According to the motto "Exploring the old means understanding the new" they are based on the experiences of the old styles (koryu) and transfer their contents into modern concepts.
The BSKBudo does not contain combat sport systems (kakugi), but classical Budo teachings. All BSK systems teach giving meaning and value consideration in the everyday exercise.
In addition the BSK teachers explore and practice many asiatic martial arts. On the bases of old styles they developed teaching methods, which make the entrance possible to the main systems of the martial arts beyond all style conceptions.
On the weekends training courses take place in the honbu dojo of the Budo Kenyu Kai Budokan Bensheim. Regardless of the martial art you practice, you can also register!
• Karate is a modern generic term for the Chinese styles of quanfa (kungfu), which were transformed into indigenous concepts on the small island of Okinawa. In its long history, these old war systems (koryū uchinādi) were used for self-defence against various conquerors of the Ryūkyū islands, from 1609 against the Japanese samurai.
In the Budo Study Circle the later developed style boundaries are removed from this system and karate is returned to its unified origin as a whole. With the in-house concept (shōtōkan kenpō karate), a system was founded which enables access to the various karate concepts. There are no styles in the BSK, only one karate
• The term kobudo is translated as "old budo" and refers to the weapon systems from Japan (nihon kobudo) and Okinawa (okinawa kobudo), which were derived from the handling of various tools. The name kobudo is more recent and is analogous to the change from bujutsu to budo. The original term is kobujutsu.
Based on the old popular weapon practices, the systems practiced in the BSK represent bojutsu, jojutsu, hanbojutsu, saijutsu, tonfajutsu, nunchakujutsu and kamajutsu, who are taught both karate and ninjutsu.
• The BKK's ninjutsu concept is called yamamichi ryū ninjutsu and combines elements of bujutsu, karate and qigong. The ability to fight is based equally on the practice of the armed and unarmed hand. All exercises lead on an advanced level into an intensive study of the vital point theory (kyūsho).
The system contains the fighting systems (bujutsu) of the old Japanese warriors, like jūjutsu (unarmed fighting), kenjutsu (sword fighting), but also other traditional methods like hanbō (short stick), yari (spear), naginata (halberd).
• Bujutsu is an umbrella term for the military training of medieval Japanese warriors. It contains armed and unarmed systems, all later methods of the budō are derived from it.
In the BSK many technical procedures of bujutsu are integrated into the systems of karate and ninjutsu.
• The term kyūdō means "way of the bow" and describes the Japanese form of archery. As a medieval art of war (kyūjutsu) of bujutsu, it has recently been transformed into a discipline with meditative content (budō). In the BSK exclusively the philosophical interpretation is taught: It does not concern alone the meeting , but around a contemplative exercise of the self experience.
• In addition to the long Yang form with 108 movements, the Peking form with 24 movements, the short 13 form and the authentic fighting Yang form as well as several weapon forms are taught.
• From the multitude of qigong systems (cultivation of energy), the BKK forms of silent qigong and moving qigong are selected and practiced. The selection is based on an understanding of health and energy, which is based on knowledge acquired through Gabi Lind's studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Free University of Maastricht (NL).
