This paper will discuss the process by which various Budo schools were introduced to the Satsuma feudal clan during the Edo era. Martial arts prospered in the beginning of the Edo of period, and prospered again during the last days of the Shogunate. This happened all over Japan.
Budo was introduced to Satsuma in 3 days.

(2) Martial arts were taught by Satsuma samurai who learned Martial arts in Kyoto or Edo.
(3) Martial arts were taught by samurai who set up their own schools after learning from either the masterless samurai or the Satsuma samurai who had travelled to Kyoto or Edo.
