Special Edition on WBS2016 April 24-30

DNBK held the finest Fifth World Butoku Sai and International Rensei Taikai throughout the week of April 24-30 with over seven hundred martial artists from twenty one nations worldwide. Comparatively speaking, this Taikai was by far the most powerful significance of DNBK history. Over 40 noteworthy messages from the global regions, including Prime Minister Abe of Japan and President Obama of the USA were received in honor of all participants. Their messages were most momentous to this WBS Taikai.

Budo dedication by selected leaders in Seiryuden, Taisho Butokuden held April 25 was conducted with high respect and solemn sense of dignity in presence of national treasure of Blue Cetaka. Budo seminars offered April 26-27 by Honbu teachers afforded the wide range of training opportunities in the classical disciplines while participants were able to enhance the learning of new perspectives taught by them. World Butoku Sai demonstrations were filled with intense concentration of mind, body and spirit throughout. Honbu and international members displayed their cultivated skills prowess in accordance with traditions, respect and great humility which gave the entire participants with astounding positive impact. Commemorative International Rensei Taikai was also very emblematic starting with the revered flag ceremony of France in honor of the spirit of deceased member. Their demonstrations of Budo were dedicated to the great teachers of DNBK who had risen to another world. This sense of unparalleled unity and harmony also became so paramount in the world of spiritual Budo.

During the Opening Ceremony, for the first time in the 121 year history of DNBK, Her Imperial Highness, Princess Akiko of Mikasa attended the Opening Ceremony. This was endorsed by the Japanese Ministry of Imperial Household and Her Imperial Highness delivered her royal words to all participants on the special ceremonial occasion April 28. Her inspiring message about heart and soul of Japan gave every participant the profound and deeper understanding and relevance of Japanese traditions. Her unprecedented attendance in the WBS also gave international members the highest honor to be observed by Her Imperial Highness. Her historic appearance being seated in the Gyokuza of Butokuden enlivened the historical heritage and glory of DNBK as well as significance of Japanese classical traditions.

In the Fifth WBS, another milestone was reached with many unforgettable memories of outstanding accomplishments as well as achievements. To realize the visions and missions of DNBK in each historical time, it required the painstaking effort and dedication in preparations to delivery. This history making epoch of WBS was an outcome of more than three years of preparation and hard work, countless hours of laborious efforts as well as great support and enthusiastic commitment of all participants across the globe. Great appreciations and admirations go to those unsung heroes who tirelessly served for the cause of common purpose.

Every individual by virtue of his earnest participation was recognized in his honor during WBS and CIRT. All registered Dojo were also recognized based on their enthusiastic participation and commitment to team excellence. All nations representing the country in WBS was honored by the flag of each nation. Notably, WBS is far more than just demonstrations of Budo events and thus, it carries the significant torch of perpetual quest of humanity in building unity and harmony of the world through Budo.

Butoku virtues of ancient Samurai ethics are the fundamental essence of such beauty and grace in our being as Budo trainees. WBS2016 ended with tremendous success and unforgettable moments etched in our heart and soul. Shared experiences and bonding amongst all level of participants forged the pride and honor of being DNBK member and it will remain in the heart of many people that the true friendship in the DNBK families of the world will be everlasting.

We hope there will be greater excellence and brilliance continually in many years ahead for all DNBK International Members of the World.
