BUTOKUDEN Dojo Relocation Notice

Dear BUTOKUDEN Members and Friends:

As you may have already heard from your Senseis, we are currently building a new Dojo inside E-BOGU.COM warehouse. We will be moving out from our current Dojo on January 31. Please get information from your Sensei, as each of your Senseis will co-ordinate their class schedule during the transition. I would like to apologize the inconveniences during the move, but I am sure the new Dojo will be much better than our current one.

The new Dojo will be at E-BOGU.COM Warehouse which is located in the address below.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Taro Ariga

Kyudo Seminar in Spartanburg SC

Message from Doug Sakurai Sensei

“From July 27-August 1, twenty five kyudo students from Southern California, including many from Butokuden dojo will be traveling to Spartanburg, South Carolina for our annual American Kyudo Seminar. There will be 5 days of instruction from three Hachidan Hanshi instructors sent from Japan and an opportunity to test for rank on August 1. Good luck to all those students testing. There will be no kyudo class at Butokuden on July 27th.”
