IBU Special Course, Budo Specialization Program

The Budo Specialization Program is an important expression of IBU's mission to contribute to the international proliferation of Budo culture. Inaugurated in 1994, the Budo Specialization Program was envisioned to assist Budo-developing countries by providing one year of immersive training in Budo teaching methodology, theory and practice to twenty foreign Budo practitioners. In addition to Budo-related seminars, the curriculum includes intensive Japanese language classes intended to impart a level of language proficiency adequate for rich participation in University classes, club activities and campus life. Elective classes in traditional Japanese arts, such as shodo (calligraphy), kado (flower arrangement), and sado (tea ceremony), are available to Special Course students once a week. Judo,Kendo,Kyudo,Karatedo,Naginata,Shorinji Kempo and Aikido club practices occur twice daily, morning and afternoon (weekends excepted).

The course is limited to 20 students. Prospective applicants must have at least completed high school (or its equivalent). On-campus student housing for admitted students is provided at the Matsumae Memorial International Exchange Hall. The term of study is one year, beginning April 1st and ending March 31st of the following year. Completion of the one-year course (26 course credits) culminates in a Certificate of Completion.

Budo Specialization Program graduates who wish to continue their studies and training at IBU have the option to re-matriculate at the undergraduate or graduate level.
