Our Mission

“Hoko Wo Tomeru”


The symbol for TOZANDO is the kanji character for “bu” or martial. This character is comprised of the radicals “hoko” (weapon) and “yameru” (stop). This means the actual connotation for “bu” is paradoxically “to stop fighting” and to promote peace. With this spirit in which the strong protect the weak to maintain a peaceable society, we at TOZANDO are endeavouring to develop our operation to contribute to the promotion the martial arts to facilitate a peaceful world. We see this as our mission and responsibility.
