International Budo association

IDO - The peaceful way of connecting martial arts
IDO - The eternal movement in all martial arts
IDO - Fully exhausting martial arts


As an internationally operating martial arts association IDOKAN EUROPA e.V. exercises, propagates and supports the Budo discipline of Ido as perpetual movement. The inner path (the mental power) and the school of perfect movement have top priority. Qualified masters, who back the ideals of Budo imperturbably, hold basic and advanced training courses in various styles.

In practice Ido means the line-up of actions, combinations and counter techniques – the idea is not to fight against each other, but with each other.
This principle can be applied to all Budo arts, such as Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Karate-Do, Iaido et cetera. For this reason Budo arts are to be exercised without stylistic limitations and should not be administered or marketed.
Idokan is meant to be the home for Budo practitioners of all martial arts disciplines and styles.
