The main purpose why the Bushikan Budo Kyokai (BBK) and the Matayoshi Kobudo Kodokan International (MKKI) were formed was to promote and preserve the arts of Okinawa Goju Ryu and Matayoshi Kobudo to be passed on to future generations without any considerations regarding differences of race, religion, color or gender, keeping the practice of the art away from promoting personal egos, agendas, or political reasons.

The Bushikan Budo Kyokai centers its work primarily in the promotion of the arts of Karate and Self-Defense, meanwhile the Matayoshi Kobudo Kodokan International exclusively focuses on the promotion of Matayoshi Kobudo.


One of the main commitments of our Organization is to support our Budo family members offering them constant opportunities for training. As part of that commitment we promote Annual Gasshuku's (camps) and seminars, in the USA as well as outside the country.

Through the Bushikan Budo Kyokai we promote every year in Summer our Annual Karate Gasshuku and in Fall we promote our Annual Special Bushikan Seminar. The Summer Gasshuku is taught by Sanguinetti Sensei and senior instructors of the Dojo. For the Annual Special Seminar Sanguinetti Sensei brings senior instructors from other organizations to teach the event. Both events are conducted in our Honbu Dojo in San Diego and are open to all our Budo Family Members. Also our Bushikan Budo Kyokai is responsible to coordinate and conduct all the different activities related to Karate and Self-Defense that our organization promotes through the year at the San Marcos Unified School District as well as at private companies and organizations.

On the other hand, every odd numbered year our Matayoshi Kobudo Kodokan International promotes an International Kobudo Gasshuku in Okinawa taking a team from our Organization to train in the birthplace of Karate and Kobudo, and the even numbered years promotes an equal International Kobudo Gasshuku in our Honbu Dojo in San Diego. Both of these Gasshuku’s are taught by Okinawan/Japanese instructors specially invited. The Gasshuku in Okinawa also includes visits to train in Karate Dojos of important Ryuhas on the island as part of a cultural expansion.

In addition to the International Gasshuku’s, Sanguinetti Sensei through our organization, the MKKI, also promotes and teaches an Annual National Gasshuku in our Honbu Dojo in San Diego as well as Annual Gasshuku in our Dojos affiliated inside and outside the USA where he gets invited every year to teach. Gasshuku’s are very important to standardize the instructors and students level and to promote unity among our Budo family members since most of the trainings are three or four days long.

Instructors affiliated from within the USA are encouraged to attend a Gasshuku in San Diego at least once per year as well as instructors from outside the USA are encouraged to attend a Gasshuku in San Diego at least every other year. This is very important to maintain their level and to be able to know the other family members.


As part of the constant desire of Sanguinetti Sensei to support all the members of our Budo family, he makes himself available to travel regularly to conduct Seminars and Gasshuku's (3~4 days training camps) within and outside the USA.
If you are an Instructor living in the USA and have the interest to promote one of these events in your city of residence or proximity, please feel free to check with our Honbu Dojo for availability of possible desired dates.
If you are an Instructor living outside the USA and have the interest to promote one of these events in your country, please feel free to check with our Honbu Dojo for availability in possible desired dates


One of the many benefits our Organization offers is Ranking Promotion. Testing is conducted primarily through the different Gasshuku’s offered by our organization during the year. Instructors are invited to test directly by the Honbu Dojo, and students are invited by recommendation of their Instructors in direct coordination with the Honbu Dojo.


Our Organization offers to all the Budo family members the benefit of a constantly updated web site to maintain information regarding the organization, history, calendar of events and many other beneficial subjects. Our site can be found at:
