BUDO EXCHANGE Japan 2017

Master Gichin Funakoshi communicated with other Japanese Martial Art Masters. He learned from the founders Judo - Jigoro Kano and Aikido - Moreshi Ueshiba . He incorporated various aspects from each and more into his Shoto Karate.

In pursuit of knowledge, a delegation of Mumon Karate practitioners went to Japan in 2017. 

We are grateful for the knowledge and hospitality imparted upon us during this trip.
