Yoseikan Budo (養正館武道) may be classified as a sogo budo form (総合武道
(そうごうぶどう) lit. "composite" or "comprehensive" martial art), but is used here to indicate a martial art into which various martial ways
have been integrated. It is probably most widely known for its connection to a pre-war style of aikido; however, it has important connections to judo, karate, western boxing and a
raditional form of Japanese armed combat known as Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-ryu.
