Bosei is a unique danish Sports College with a Japanese twist

At Bosei we have the facilities for a number of sports (martial arts, swimming, fitness, calisthenics, volleyball, soccer, watersports, mtb and climbing but the school has more to offer than that...

There is plenty of opportunity for you to immerse yourself in outdoor activities, music, Asian culture, arts, meditation, yoga, Japanese and Korean Languages. We warmly welcome you to our long-term courses. Please see further below.

You may select up to three from the major subjects: Outdoor, Health & Fitness, Watersports, Ballgames, Japanese, Korean, Karate, Judo, Taekwondo, Esport or Cosplay

Main Subjects

Sports College Bosei was formerly a Japanese boarding school under Tokai University, and Bosei will remain a gate to Japanese culture and East Asia.

Apart from our main and optional subjects, we arrange culturel study tours to Japan and South Korea and also ski trips to Austria and Norway.

Bosei is a 'Sports College' in Denmark for everyone who is at least 18 years old. If you want to know more about this type of college in general, please visit the official homepage for Danish folk high schools.


The languages of the Far East are the languages of the future. And the future has already begun!

Chinese and Japanese are a prerequisite for any Danish company doing business in China or Japan.

At Bosei you will be taught basic Japanese. Japanese is completely different from Indo-European languages. Limited progress will be possible in five months. However, you will learn to understand and communicate in simple conversation. You will also learn how to write and read Japanese texts.

During each semester, a group of students from Tokai University in Japan will visit Bosei for a month. That will provide you the chance to rehearse your language with native speakers every day from morning till evening.

In addition, you will be instructed regarding: Japanese culture; way of life and thinking; religion; and politics.

In the final weeks of the course, students may participate in a two week-long study tour to Japan. The study tour is not a mandatory part of the course, and must be paid for separately. We will be able to advise accurately on the price of the tours by the beginning of the respective courses. Study tour participants will be housed at Tokai University’s lodging or dormitories near Tokyo, and will have a chance to attend various classes at the University depending on language ability.

Students will be exposed to Japanese culture, industry and technology and participate in sight-seeing. Cost of the study tour is determined by the prevailing airfare and sightseeing trip fees. In Japan, Tokai University will provide the program, accommodations and meals during the period of studies and training.

Health & Fitness

Health and fitness combines a lot of physical training with mental training.

We will do a lot of physical exercises everyday using weights, our own bodies, games and anything else that comes to mind, that can help us get fit and healthy.

Part of the class is theoretical. You will learn the most effective way to work out your body, and you will know more about nutrition and anatomy.

Balance is the keyword. Balance between body and mind. Balance between exercise and rest. Balance between how much you eat and how much you exercise.


The Outdoor class is a combination of classes in our 25 meter swimming pool and our beautiful surroundings in the southern part of the Danish island Zealand.

We are going to climb the trees in the woods right outside our school.  You will learn how to make your own knife. You will ride through the woods on mountain bikes.

During the winter months we are going to use the swimming pool a bit more than usual. We are going to play kayak polo. We are going to cross the pool on a slackline. And we are going to improve our swimming techniques and underwater skills.

Outdoor classes the best way to enjoy a stay in Denmark.


Judo is Japanese meaning the gentle way.

With judo as a major subject you will learn the close combat. Whether you’re a beginner or a competitive fighter, the judo course will provide challenges and learning for everyone.

If you are new in the discipline, we will teach you the basic techniques.

Along the course we will also provide you with a deeper insight to the history and philosophy of judo, as well as an introduction to kata and judo as self defense.

You will get to participate in exhibition matches, learn about competition rules and organization, as we organize our own “Bosei Cup”. We will also have one grading session during the course where you get to demonstrate your skills.

Our Judo teacher Thor Rasmussen (4th dan) is licensed to grade up to 1.kyu. He is the national coach of the Danish U18 team, and has studied judo in Japan at International Budo University where he completed the 1 year Budo Specialization Course.


Karate-do is Japanese meaning “empty hand” – the art of defending yourself without weapons.

Some styles in karate can trace their roots back to ancient China. The daily training is aimed at developing physical as well as mental abilities. Every lesson begins with a short meditation session, and the training focuses on strength and endurance as well as flexibility, balance, coordination, and speed.

The mind thus gets stronger too, and this combination of physical and mental training makes you function better in your daily life. It doesn’t matter whether you are a novice or a well-trained fighter since karate is individual training within the team.


Taekwondo is Korean and combines the three words Tae (foot/kick) Kwon (hand/hit) Do (the way to do it).

Taekwondo is distinguishable from other disciplines as a highly developed system of techniques, with kicking being the most important. Taekwondo deepens your understanding of the body and is like other martial arts based on values like patience and mutual respect.

The daily teacher will be Christian Henriksen, student of Master Ko Tai Jeong (9th Dan). You’ll get a training of the high quality, whether you are a beginner or a skilled fighter. You will be taught taekwondo on a level that is appropriate for you, and there will be grading sessions during the course.

You will also have opportunity to train with the local aikido-club.
