Burarian, one of Nihon Karatedo Shotokai’s oldest group based in Tokyo, has 70 years of history. We preserve the teachings of Nihon Karatedo’s originator Master Gichin Funakoshi. We do not believe that karate is a sport or for competition. But quite earnestly, we continue to train daily for self discipline. True budo (martial art) does not question age or gender.
