Nanbudo was founded by Yoshinao Nanbu a Shito-Ryu and Shukokai practitioner in 1978. It is a relatively new hybrid martial art and uses many techniques that are similar to those found in Karate, Judo and Aikido.

Nanbu had developed sankukai a similar form of karate but later withdrew from both his system and he entire world of martial arts, having become disillusioned with the competition and politics involved. After moving to France his passion for the arts of his native country was rekindled and in 1978 he developed the new system of Nanbudo. It is considered to be a holisitc method of self defence and although many of the techniques are based on his early karate career, he also incorporated elements of his own philosophy.

Physical and mental health
The art is divided into 4 major aspects 'kata','randori','ju' and 'ki'.
Kata incorporates 3 levels basic, advanced and superior.Most techniques are performed unarmed the system includes training with a six-foot bo staff and a bokken.There are also a number of hidden methods that students are encouragedto discover and develop themselves.
Randori is a formalized set of techniques in which attacker and defender engage in a set of prearranged movements,such as punch and kicks, in order to develop good timing and discipline, and correct distancing.
Ju is a prefix added to other elements of the art, most commonly 'jurandori' and indicates a competitive element.
Ki is described as a way of holistically developing the body and physique allowing ki to flow freely through the body.
