The name Genbukan translates as "the place that nurtures the martial art professionals; the place
radiating with an exquisite martial art". 'Gen' can also means black, and thus the Genbukan can
be said to mean a place for the practice of martial arts which are both mysterious and marvelous.
This significance is that those who master the Ninpo Bugei give light to our everyday world, a
world often filled with darkness.
