5th Anniversary – 16 Oct

Dirty BoxingOsu!

Join us in celebrating Bushin’s 5th Anniversary!

Thursday 16th October at 7.30pm (Studio 1) – Doing what we do best – fighting and eating. First we shall be having a special training session tapping into some of the advanced techniques and secrets of Bushin. Dirty boxing, pressure point strikes and even some internal energy work.

After the session, we shall be going to our favourite restaurant Preto, the Brazilian steakhouse round the corner from the QM centre. It’s a buffet and carvery where you can eat as much as you like for £20. If you want to go, please click yes on the event in Facebook or let Fiona know – asap please so we can book. (if you don’t, you won’t get a seat).

What a great 5 years it’s been. The club has grown, the standard has improved and the style has got better. Last year, we had our first Summer Camp. This year we started a grappling class, a Sunday class and got our first Black Belt. I’m also pleased to report we are on the cusp of signing up our 100th member. After over 20 years of teaching I’ve never had a club which has been so successful in recruiting and training street fighters. A hugely rewarding experience.

Training session will be free for members, £20 for non-members.

See you then!

Keepin’ it Real

Great Newbie Session tonight. Packed house. Really pleasing to see how a few basic street techniques can be quickly learnt and applied effectively by people with no experience. Lots of enthusiasm, lots of sweat, lots of fun. Welcome to the family for those that signed up.

Fight the Flab – Tonight 7.30pm

Bushin - PadsBack from my jaunt around the US and looking forward to the Newcomers Session tonight. Being in the wealthiest nation on earth makes you realise you much overeating, over indulgence and general laziness isn’t good for the body or the mind. Its a one way track. Why are we happy putting money in our pensions which cater for us when we get old, but reluctant to spend money on ourselves now, to make sure we get there in one piece? Get fit, be healthy and bash some pads. See you tonight at 7.30pm!

Thai vs Boxing

Always nice to switch up your fighting strategy to get on top of your opponent. Working Thai elbows and knees into boxing is great way to mix it up. Close quarter pressure and then stick and move. Pressure, pressure then off on the angle and box in and out. Like water and stone…
