Budokan inspired?

My yoga instructor really mixes up styles and stuff, which I like. She also does things that she says are more "budokan inspired." Does anyone know what that means? Is that a general term for the martial arts?

Hi there, the only thing I know about Budokon I learned from a DVD by Cameron Shane and he describes it as a combination of Yoga, Martial Arts and Meditation.

The Bodukan refers to a large arena in Tokyo, Japan which is used to house a variety of martial arts and wrestling competitions. Not only did it host competitions, but due to its size it has been used in the past and still is, to host concerts as well, The Beatles held a concert in it.

In this sense "budokan inspired" can refer to a hotchpot of various forms thrown together in one arena.

Hope it helps.
