HOW IT WORKS
Content is uploaded to the private Budokan Channel currently on You Tube or any other video platform we choose to use.
We take it from there and place it on a secure section of this website in the relevant section of each discipline or on the Dojo pages of the content provider.
Only approved teachers, instructors and dojo leaders and their students have access to this content, via a login process using a username and password provided.
Each content provider (ie teacher, approved instructor and/or dojo leader) benefits from a small subscription or video on demand process to access their content, as this site reaches a critical mass.
All content is the copyright of each provider.
All content provided is credited to each provider.
There is no cost to any content provider at this time - UNLESS THE BUSINESS MODEL OF THE VIDEO PLATFORMS CHANGES
In practice, anyone can sign up and become a subscriber by paying a small monthly or one off download fee, allowing access to the whole site and its content 24/7.
All proceeds are allocated according to the subscription pricing structure agreed with all content providers
And if you have this type of resource as a tool and back up - it makes teaching to camera really easy and this is where video platforms like SKYPE AND ZOOM come in.
Inevitably, all content providers will be able to teach direct to students based anywhere in the world.
Thsi can be done in groups of course - as has been seen during the lockdown - but is so much more effective on a one to one basis with this type of back-up.
You've just learned Pinan Shodan for the first time and you can't get back to the Dojo for a week. And yoiur Sensei has said "practice at home".
Well - now you can in words, pictures and video with audio.
And the same with the fist form of Seitei Iaido
Its all new and Budo students want the reassurance that they can go home, go online and learn the form again.
Not only that - they can also take a look at how to hold the sword properly on one page and learn the names of all the parts of the sword on another.
What about the basics of a Karate punch, with the instructions of how to do it and your Sensei actually showing you on video - which you can access time and time again.
Bringing your dojo into your room whenever you want to.
And when it comes to weapons - the devil lies in the detail - which you don't always "get" in the Dojo.
Well....here you can 24/7.
With Training Tips on video to boot.
Budokan had begin the process of compiling educational content with reard to the disciplines it teaches and practices for a number of years now.
This content will be accessible to dojo leaders and their students day in and day out 24/7, comparing what they are doing with what they are viewing.
As we can then get current teachers and dojo leaders to take video of themselves teaching and or live video of classes taking place somewhere which we can all have access to.
In this way the learning platform for students becomes a teaching platform for teachers, instructors and dojo leaders..
