Kyoshi Payne appointed ‘Representative for Judo’ (Kenshoin) within the ‘International Division’ of ‘Dai Nippon Butoku Kai’...

Kyoshi Payne, already the existing and long term Official ‘Representative of United Kingdom’ (Daihyo), until 2011 of the ‘International Division’ of ‘Dai Nippon Butoku Kai’, has now been officially appointed as ‘Representative for Judo’ (Kenshoin), within the ‘International Division’ of ‘Dai Nippon Butoku Kai’ by Dr. Hiroyuki Hamada, Vice President of DNBK Hombu and Chairman of the DNBK ID.


As of September 1st 2008, Kyoshi Payne was officially appointed as the ‘Official Representative for Judo’ (Kenshoin) of Dai Nippon Butoku Kai by Dr Hiroyuki Hamada, Vice President of DNBK Hombu and Chairman of the DNBK ID.
Kyoshi Payne will be serving the DNBKID under the direction of the Japan Hombu and the DNBK International Division outside of Japan.
The DNBK is chaired by Japan’s Prince, Higashi Fushimi Jigo, this appointment being an extension of the authority of the DNBK Hombu and its Governing Body.
Martial Arts throughout the Japanese Empire fell directly under the jurisdiction of the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai, which in turn was accountable only to the Emperor and his administration. As the sole agency in charge of Budo in Japan, originally the Butokukai was supported in large part by Meiji bureaucrats, the Ministry of Education (Mombusho) and the military. As such, any and all ancient and modern martial arts or related activities in the country were reported to, and invariably scrutinized by, the Butokukai.

These arts not only included Judo, but all Kenjutsu, Kobudo, Jujutsu, Karatedo, Aikido, Kendo, Kyudo, etc…

Branches of the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai are now being established throughout the Western world in an effort to (re-)introduce the profound teachings of the ancient Japanese warrior and his unique philosophy of living in harmony with nature and his fellow man.

Martial Arts Master Dr. Hiroyuki Hamada (Hanshi), the International Chairman of the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai, is the principal force behind the campaign to establish foreign branches outside of Japan.
