Kami Bushi Do is an integrated martial art that utilizes techniques and methods from several different styles. Kami Bushi Do translates as  "Divine Warrior Way". Kami Bushi Do is a branch of the original Kami Bushi Kai art. Kami Bushi Kai was founded by David Okawa Baize in 1981 after many years of cross training in Western Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, Kempo, Aiki-jujitsu, and Shotokan Karate. In 1998 Shihan Baize promoted Dan McCaslin to the rank of Hachidan-8th degree black belt and appointed him to head the Kami Bushi Do branch.  Shihan Baize also promoted Jim Long of Florida to Hachidan-8th degree black belt and appointed him to head the Kami Bushi Jutsu branch of the Kami Bushi arts.

In April 2006 Soke Baize appointed Dan McCaslin as Soke-Dai. In July 2010 Soke-Dai McCaslin formally resigned from the United Bujutsu Federation to form a new martial arts association.  The new organization is San Yama Bujutsu Renmei which means Three Mountains Martial Arts Federation. The new organization is meant to be an alliance of like-minded martial artists who can share information on training, business aspects of martial arts and also serve as a certification center for rank examinations.Members with more experience can serve as mentors for martial artists who need advice. The new organization will have divisional heads who will be in charge of a specific style or system. For example someone will head the kempo division,karate division, etc. Members of the new organization can be from percussion styles such as Kempo, Karate, or Tae-Kwon Do, etc.Members can also be from grappling syles such as JiuJitsu, Aikido,Judo, etc. The third category of members is weaponry practice. This category would include Okinawan Weapons, Filipino weapons arts, and also Chinese weapons stylists. Thus these three categories of membership would constitute the "Three Mountains".
