Budokan is a martial arts game covering Karate (unarmed combat), Kendo (using a wooden sword), Nunchaku (using piercing chain weapons) and Bo (using a staff). The player has a realistic range of moves and must use them wisely, as Ki (life-force) is drained for every move made, whether successful or not, and both this and your stamina level must be kept high. You can practice your skills alone, or spar against the instructors or your friends. Finally, when you feel you are ready, you can travel to the martial arts world championship tournament at Budokan.

Additional Information

You are a student at the dojo of the man you call Sensei. As the student you are to practice each of the martial arts at the dojo and then be judged on your sparring performances. Then correct your problems and practice, practice, practice.

Budokan allows you to train and fight in four forms of martial arts. Become an expert in karate, bo, nunchaku, and kendo. Each has its own moves that must be learned in order to survive the Budokan, which is where the martial arts masters display their abilities.

When you feel you have mastered the four martial arts it is time to enter the Budokan. Now face off against 12 individual opponents who each feature their own unique fighting styles.
