"Hanshi" subject

Well I was passing by and noticed this thread and so i will try to give my little cent in here: The Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (established in the Butokuden in Kyoto) is the oldest Budo organization that gathers japanese traditional martial arts - it is held by prince Higashi Fushimi Jigo and they honor people that have achieved a high level of understanding in their art with "Kyoshi", "Renshi" and "Hanshi".

See ya soon
