In Japan the practise of martial arts is often combined with Budo and Zen to achieve balance and harmony. Since the dawn of time human beings have strived to push back the limits of their strength and wisdom.
The Combat arts and Aikido self defence offer you a method for Personal challenge and self-discovery through which mastery can be achieved.
You can learn discipline, focus, breath control, balance, awareness, power and inner strength. It is a study with a long tradition, the techniques of the Japanese arts go back to the Samurai.
There are many different forms of budo as seen by the numerous arts available to you today. They all teach the abandonment of attachments, ego,and personal desires.
Skills are transmitted from master to disciple.
Zen adds the dimension of wisdom to the physical and mental strength that is developed. As warriors on the path, it is our duty to follow the laws of nature and serve the people.
The place for mastery of self is in the awareness of every moment...
In Budo there is little time for conscious thought... intention and action must be simultaneous with peace and tranquility of movement.
It begins and ends with courtesy and gratitude, otherwise our practise will become dangerous to others and merely brutal.

If YOU are considering starting your training or already practising, at some point you may ask yourself...
Can I really defend myself?
You see most traditional arts teach a variety of techniques that are great. But, real violence is unpredictable, very aggressive, and has been shown to make victims freeze on the spot... even well-trained people.
With adrenaline surging through your body and fear and terror on your mind, it can be a real shock. This can overload your system, unless you are prepared and expecting these feelings.
What's the answer?
Carry on with your training, but study with a knowledgeable instructor, who can also show you the best techniques for the street and exactly...
