Primarily the TBCI is a teaching organisation set up for the preservation of the philosophical and spiritualistic concepts of the Classical Arts of Japan, to be achieved by following and forwarding the principles of KyuShinDo, first outlined by Kenshiro Abbe Docho.
It is the specific aim of the TBCI to help and guide each and every student along the path, the path of self enlightenment. We all should strive to realise our maximum potential in all things and one medium through which this can be achieved totally, is through the correct study of Martial Arts. Those that understand, know that, what you can learn through the correct study of Martial Arts, is only a mirror of life itself.
Therefore by correct teaching and guidance students are encouraged to achieve aspects that they feel and think are impossible. This is the true nature of Budo. Therefore the study of KyuShinDo is a medium for the true conduct of life. Through this understanding comes social tolerance and hopefully a better world.
The the founder of the TBCI, Kancho Alfred Bates Judan Hanshi, before his sad passing, put in motion various strategies to ensure the continuation of aims and principles of the TBCI, one of which was to name Shihan Derek Joyce Shichidan as the new president of the TBCI. So as we had always been taught, time moves on and nothing stays the same forever. So it is then that the TBCI moves forward, continuing the good works already achieved.
