SMAA Online Store
The Shudokan Martial Arts Association (SMAA, Shudokan Budo-Kai) was founded in January 1994 by a group of martial artists who were concerned with promoting and safeguarding Nihon budo and bujutsu--the traditional martial arts and ways of Japan. The SMAA is a small, fraternal organization with a decidedly noncommercial outlook on budo and bujutsu. It includes separate divisions for karate-do, aikido, judo, traditional jujutsu, iaido, and goshin-jutsu (modern self-defense systems stemming from budo or bujutsu). Both associate membership (without rank) and regular membership (with rank) are available to individuals sincerely interested in researching and training in the classical martial systems of Japan.
The SMAA has developed an online shop in order to provide unique SMAA logo products for its members. All of the income from the SMAA online store goes to support our nonprofit organization and to further the preservation of traditional budo around the world. To get your own official SMAA hats, shirts, stickers, calendars, and other logo items, just drop by http://www.cafepress.com/shudokan/.
