Being able to produce my own version of Kano Ryu Jiu-Jitsu after studying Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and Kobo-Jutsu for over 50 years fills me with a great sense of pride and I feel highly honoured to do so with thanks to my father and so many great Sensei I have been able to be taught by - Sensei Tom Starling 8th Dan

Incorporating Kano Style Jiu-Jitsu


We are open to all martial artists regardless of what association they belong to and provide a safe and friendly environment to train. We are always looking for new members to join the IBF this includes everyone from the individual to existing clubs and organisations who simply want to belong to a governing body or larger blanket organisation without compromising their individuality or have to change their training system.

About Us

If you wish to become part of the IBF please visit our membership page. We have our own grading scheme and this syllabus is challenging and well structured. However we allow member clubs within our own organisation to follow their own syllabus if they wish to do so. The IBF is all about the martial art this is the ethos of the International Budo Federation.
