From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term "Goshindo" can refer to several different activities.


Japanese Goshindo

Goshindo is a Japanese martial art based on techniques used to train samurai. It incorporates the schools of Karatedo, Aikido, and jujutsu, as well as numerous weapon disciplines including hanjo, (similar to eskrima,) , , katana, nunchaku, tonfa, and sai.

Swedish Goshindo

Goshindo in Sweden is based on the flow achieved in modern martial arts such as boxing, wrestling, judo and thaiboxing. No weapons are used.

Sport Goshindo

There is also a Kodachi Goshindo system founded by Tetsundo Tanabe. It is now known as Sports Chanbara. [1] It is now considered as a free-style Japanese combat sport, which originated from the aforementioned Kodachi Goshindo (Self-defense with short sword).

Sports Chanbara uses the short sword (Kodachi), long sword (Choken) and other traditional Japanese weaponry, such as the dagger, spear, halberd, long and short staff.

Tanabe Sensei's idea for Sports Chanbara is for it to be a free-style sword fighting sport, that can be easily enjoyed and yet remain as realistic as possible. Thus came about the innovation of “air soft” technology. All equipment used in Sports Chanbara are padded, hollow-core, inflatable training weapons. With the use of “air soft” equipment, Tanabe Sensei hopes to promote the spirit of safety*, fairness* and freedom* through SpoChan training.

Self-defense Goshindo

Goshindo is also an alternate name of the self-defense art created by Shogo Kuniba. His art is referred to as Goshin Budo, Kuniba-ryu Goshindo or Kuniba Goshinbudo Jujutsu depending on the organization. [2]
