Also we would like to thank all the visiting kenshi that made today’s practice at our dojo. We are happy to keep promoting kendo and friendship in South Florida.
About Toku Bu Kan Dojo
The true winning is not by power, trickery nor anger, because winning using these things will create feeling of revenge or feeling of unhappiness, however wining by true virtue (Toku) is true winning, even your opponent will thank you when defeated by you and respect your quality.
Therefore we are using this Virtue (Toku 徳)for the Dojo’s first kanji, and for the second kanji we use Bu ( 武) as in Budo. And the last kanji is Kan ( 館) as in group.
(徳武館) Tokubukan has a deep meaning and is giving us a goal to strive for.
