KamiBushiShinDo Karate was developed by Soke James W. Clements.  Soke Clements is
a 9th Degree Black Belt (
Kudan) and the founder and promoter of the National Hombu Dojo
KamiBushiShinKai Organization
.  We are located in the Balls Creek Community of Claremont,
North Carolina.

KamiBushiShinDo Karate is an eclectic martial arts system.  It combines the most effective
self-defense techniques, strategies, and philosophies from a variety of systems, which
Soke
Clements
has high Black Belt ranks in, such as:

  • Korean Karate (Taekwondo MooDukKwan, ChangMuKwan) and Hapkido
  • Japanese Karate, Shotokan, KamiShinRyu, and Okinawan Kobudo
  • Kendo, Aikido, Mugai Ryu Iaihyodo
  • American Boxing and Kick Boxing
  • American Law Enforcement Techniques
  • Ground Fighting, Knife Fighting, Short & Long Firearms Technique

Training is focused on empty hand tactics, partner drills, traditional forms, and body conditioning.  
KamiBushiShinDo combines the Asian aspects of training along with highly effective American law
enforcement and street-defense tactics.  It combines strength, speed, and endurance training to
form a true
Sogo-Budo (combined martial way).

KamiBushiShinDo means “The Way of the Divine Warrior’s Heart.”  This mindset is not an
easy way or path for anyone training in martial arts, but is certainly a worthy one as a warrior’s
heart has always been one of loyalty, discipline, respect, commitment, and singleness of purpose.

What does it take to be a great
KamiBushiShinDo student?  It takes a burning desire to do
your absolute best in each and every class.  It takes persistence in training and perseverance
to keep on going even when your muscles get tired and your mind gets weary.  It takes discipline
to follow instructions and train "not just at the
Dojo," but at home as well.  Above all, it takes
ATTITUDE…and not a negative one.  There may be a time when you're confronted with a self-
defense situation, where both you and your attacker are equal in strength and technique.  What
will it take for you to overcome this situation…
A KAMIBUSHISHINDO ATTITUDE.  A
winning attitude that says, "I won't be defeated today!"  

This is what it takes folks.  This is what is required of each student who attends class at
Clements Karate Dojo.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We here at the KAMIBUSHISHINKAI still train as the Masters before us trained.  We do this
because it is the natural way of things. This is the way the Masters intended it to be. The Martial
Arts has to be a personal journey through training. We dance to our own music and answer to no one
but ourselves. We are not an organization of control. We strive only to control our inner selves
through training and life, nothing more and nothing less. If we can help you with a problem just write.
It all starts with respect and ends with respect.
