The Sekai Dentokan Bugei Renmei (World School of Traditional Martial Arts Federation), was founded by Col (Ret) Roy J. Hobbs, Hanshi as a means of providing instruction, and certification, in the various martial arts he has studied and practiced for over 50 years. The Sekai Dentokan Bugei Renmei, Inc. is a member organization of the Zen Nihon Sogo Budo Renmei (All Japan Complete Martial Arts Federation), located in Kyoto, Japan. Col Hobbs also serves as Shidoin, Nippon Seibukan Academy (NSA) - U. S. A. Branch, and Fuku Shibucho for NSA English Speaking Countries. Like the Zen Nihon Sogo Budo Renmei, the Hombu Dojo of the Nippon Seibukan Academy is located in Kyoto, Japan.
The Dentokan aims to preserve and teach the traditional martial arts of Japan (including Okinawa). We strive to accomplish this in an environment free of intimidation, politics, and other distracters. We further seek to foster a spirit of fellowship and understanding, welcoming all like-minded individuals, regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, religion, national origin, or physical handicap.
