武神館國際連光明

welcome to bkrbudo

This is the home of the Bujinkan Kokusai Renkoumyo martial arts association.

In 2001, before leaving Japan after more than a decade of training with the Bujinkan Grandmaster, Sean Askew formed the Bujinkan Kokusai Renkoumyo (武神館國際連光明). Loosely translated as the “International Association of Bujinkan Practitioners”, initially it was a syllabus based system to educate and promote new students in the Bujinkan Dojo’s martial arts. It was a standard to maintain quality over the international member base. Over time it became a platform for Sean to write a blog on the various aspects of the Bujinkan martial arts, especially their history which inspired him to write his first book “The Hidden Lineage”.

Sean returned to live in Japan in 2005 for a few more years before again uprooting and moving to mainland China in 2008 for further investigation into the roots of the martial arts. He and his wife actively travelled the motherland in search of the ruins and remnants of the various origins of the Japanese Bujinkan martial arts.

In 2012, Sean and his wife Kei left the beautiful island of Hainan, China to live in the United States to work in the automotive production industry, where they both hold executive positions in Japanese corporations.

Currently Sean teaches the martial arts in Michigan, just outside of Detroit, to a small dedicated group of BKR practitioners. He, his family and his dojo members travel to Japan several times a year to further their training and research.

A little over a year ago, Kei Askew established the BKRBUDO website, and we became a family company still proud to do our best to promote the Bujinkan Dojo Headquarters of Noda City Japan and provide high quality information related to the nine martial arts that make up the Bujinkan system.

We now also sell world class merchandise such as books, t-shirts and hand crafted stone inkan stamps.

When you think of BKRBUDO you are thinking of the best!!!
