Social Harmony

Through a series of meaningful social encounters and enrichment activities, we are promoting interaction, dialogue and coexistence between the diverse tribes of Israeli society.

Our program includes three stages of interaction:


1. Educational Program: Weekly martial arts training sessions focusing on Budo values, developed by pedagogical educators and martial arts teachers.

2. Host & Be Hosted Social Encounters: Neighboring clubs learn more about each other’s background, culture and martial art style by hosting and be hosted at each club.

Each encounter includes:

  • Ice breaking games and joint warm-up exercises to break down barriers
  • Values based joint martial arts training sessions led by certified Budo for Peace Instructors
  • Mixed teams: Teams are comprised of mixed members from neighboring clubs who work together towards a shared score
  • Social, technology based tournament using an innovative technological martial arts training aid which objectively measures and records real-time data on the athlete’s performance, including response time, stamina, strength and decision making.


3. Regional Encounter
