The International Budo Federation was established in Europe over 50 years ago. Australia became a part of that global organization in the early 1970’s and nowadays plays an important role in bringing together genuine martial artists from around the country to participate in competitions, training days, workshops and a global network.
We also support many community fundraising events for the Cancer Council and Beyond Blue with many members also taking on their own charity events. It is with pride that we also give recognition to those pioneers before us who made a difference and who's legacy continues in students and martial arts communities still going to this day.
IBF Australia has established a very diverse and vast community of great martial artists, all supporting good events and causes. It is not-for-profit in structure and holds pride in maintaining the Budo Charter, actively supporting it's members with gradings, competitions, and introductions. It is seen as a peer group to many organizations and we assist other entities with a focus more on active participation rather than ranks and titles. While groups come and go, the IBF Australia can say it is one of the longest standing multi-style organizations, committed to "Building a Better Martial Arts Community". Consider the benefits for your club and students.
