Excellent

I have been training there for a couple of weeks now and I have had loads of fun. There is a good mix of different types of techniques to learn and we even get to hit pads, excellent for taking frustration out on if nothing else! The art itself is a good mix of lots of different styles, making it a good all round art and I will definitely be training there as much as I can.‎

Great Class!

I picked up a flyer for this at the centre and decided to try a class. It was brilliant! A good hard workout, lots of fun and really useful self defense. The instructor certainly seems to know his stuff. Definitely be going back for more.‎

Effective street defence

I had an experience not to be forgotten last week when I was with some friends out in town, like any other week we met up and went for a meal and it was time to go home. I was with a friend at the time and nearly approaching my car when 2 youths approached us asking for my car keys or they will stab us. For a split second I remembered the words of my Sensei Cailey Barker that the best form of defence is offence and before the youth finish the sentence my friend and I launched at the 2 youths and neutralised the situation. Immediately after about 15 youths started running towards us with belts and baseball bats and started wildly swinging the belts at us, I remembered from our Bushin training when fighting multiple opponents to keep constantly moving so your opponent does not surround you and that’s what I did and I tried to stay calm and keeping my guard at all time. Thankfully I managed to come out of the situation safe and unharmed and this is testimony to the Bushin training and considering I have only been training in martial arts for 7 months it shows how effective Bushin is.

Highly recommended!

Despite being an effective, combat based martial art. Bushin is one of the least testosterone driven, egotistical martial arts organisations that I have been to. The instructors are humble, kind and encouraging. When they demonstrate techniques, even a person with no prior training can tell that they are in well experienced hands. The students, equally as kind and encouraging, are great fun to be around. Bushin is an awesome fusion of fun, fitness and effective martial arts, all at your own pace.

Addicted

For a while I had been looking for a sport that would involve a good deal of exercise and would differ from all the sports I had practised before. After noticing a Bushin flyer by chance at the Queen Mother Sports Centre I decided to give it a try (I had no experience in martial arts). After a couple of months, I m totally addicted to it. It is very demanding physically, but there is also a psychological dimension to it, which makes it even more appealing to me. On top of that, the classes are good fun with friendly people and I always have a great time.

Fun and varied

As someone with little to no martial arts experience I found joining a martial arts class was very daunting however at Bushin I found it really easy to settle in. The classes are fun and varied with little room for boredom! So glad I gave it a go.

Great confidence booster!

I have to say, since joining, my confidence has shot up, and I definately have more faith in my own abilities now, MUCH more than before. It’s taught me a lot about self defence using varied methods, covering most, if not all, bases, and is brilliant for improving ones awareness. Great for increasing one’s stamina as well! It’s a good place to keep fit and generally exercise the whole body, AND your mind. Excellent fun, too, with a class of friendly students, and very approachable instructors; I’d recommend Bushin to anyone.

Recommended

Bushin has been a real eye opener, it’s a great way to keep in shape, learn about self defence and most importantly really enjoyable. The classes really do make sure you work to your level and limits, under excellent instructors. I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who have never thought about doing a mixed martial art before.

FAQ

Thinking of joining and have some questions? Check out answers to our most common ones below! Any further questions, just send us an email at info@bushin.co.uk and we will get back to you!

1. Do I need to be fit or strong?
No. Bushin is for all shapes and sizes and we adapt training to you so you will become your own unique streetfighter who can adapt to any situation, against any number of people, armed or not. The system is designed so you can pick it up easily. Fitness comes with training and you will discover you’ve become fitter through regular training as Bushin is a high intensity exercise.
2. Will I get injured?
Bushin is a safe training environment for everyone. We have a mix of men and women and we always take into account individual skill levels. Accidents are very rare and fighting is done in a very controlled manner. Classes are supervised by our expert instructors who are all first aid trained.
3. How do I progress?

Bushin has a comprehensive training syllabus that aims to transform you into a complete streetfighter. For more details of this, see our Training page. To develop and build on your skills, Bushin has a grading system to enable you to test your skills under pressure.

Depending on ability and with regular training Black Belt is attainable within 4 years.

4. Do you teach kids?
No. We are an adults only class and you need to be over 18 years old to train with us.
5. What do I wear? What do I need to bring?
To get started just wear your normal gym kit and trainers and you will get a Bushin Tshirt when you join. We mainly use MMA gloves and focus pads and provide these for you to get started; after a while you buy your own. If you have some already please bring them along! The sports centre has shower facilities.
6. How big are the classes?
The classes contain typically 12-15 students with an even split of men and women. We have up to 4 instructors in the class at one time – this means you get an extremely high amount of personal tuition which is a great advantage for you.
7. How do I pay? Is there a contract?
For your convenience, monthly training fees are paid by direct debit, taken at the beginning of the month. Your first payment will include the joining fee. There is a 3 month contract as we like you to get your feet wet and progress through your first grading. After this period we just ask for a month’s notice if you wish to cancel for any reason.
