I believe that it is important that the name of our dojo embodies the spirit of those who train there. There are three characters in the Bushinkan name, Bu stands for "martial", as in Budo (or 'way of warrior', 'way of the martial arts'). Shin stands for 'truth', usually refers to the 'core' of something. Kan meaning house or place. So the name of our dojo represents 'the house of seeking the truth (or core) behind the martial way (budo).
