The Bushikan Budo Kyokai was formed by Franco Sanguinetti Sensei
with the purpose not only to preserve and promote the true essence
of the traditional Okinawan martial arts of Goju Ryu Karate and Matayoshi
Kobudo, but equally important to implement into our society the many
moral values that those two arts teaches beside the physical aspect
one of the most emphatic beliefs of Sanguinetti Sensei is that our children are the future of our country, and because of that we should focus on their correct upbringing. Unfortunately in our modern society our children are growing up day by day exposed to many negative moral values bringing as a natural consequence that parents have to deal with problems that previous generations did not have. Sanguinetti Sensei also believes the problems our society is suffering from right now are not going to have an easy fix, nor that one person alone is going to be able to do it, but if we all do our little part in our daily life we together can make a big difference. Choosing not to do anything makes us a part of the problem.
It is with this in mind that Sanguinetti Sensei in his 45 years of active practice of the traditional martial arts has focused his energy mainly on promoting education; not only in our youth but also in adults. He has no doubts in his mind that teaching children of a young age the moral values proper of the traditional martial arts can be an excellent way to empower those children with good tools to become a positive part of society. Sanguinetti Sensei constantly teaches children with values such as respect, discipline, to pay attention to adults, to try their best where ever they go, to help others, and overall to become a positive element in society.
Sanguinetti Sensei's commitment to help our society, especially helping our youth, is easy to see through his dedicated work. His work in the USA spreads from day care level, to elementary school level, to college level, and to private level.
He has been teaching at his Bushikan Dojo in San Diego since 1986, After School Programs at elementary schools from the San Marcos Unified School District since 1994. As a result of his reputation and commitment to our community Sanguinetti Sensei was authorized in 1997 by the then Superintendent of the San Marcos School District, Dr. Larry Maw to teach his Bushikan Self-Defense Program at the local elementary schools which he taught for 10 years.
Outside the USA Sanguinetti Sensei travels to support dojo affiliated in 14 countries by teaching training events. To visit the list of dojo affiliated click here. To learn more about the events that Sanguinetti Sensei promotes and teaches through the year click here.
