The Institute’s mission is to support all martial artists in their quest for more knowledge by developing and providing curriculum study materials in the form of manuals, guides and video materials for all levels. In this regard, The Institute is able to provide either the individual student or schools with the materials needed to develop a Budo curriculum of study for all levels through 5th Dan. A further integral part of the mission of The Institute is to provide an organization where the many smaller, often isolated, martial arts schools may find resources to reinforce or replace gaps in their own curriculum and organizational structure.
