Claus Hansen was interviewed by fellow Bushinkai greenbelt Sam Bainbridge for the Manchester-Japanese cultural website Manchester UK Nippon which is an official partner of our martial arts school.
Manchester UK Nippon covers everything from Japanese dance, to music to fashion to sport and Bushinkai is its resident martial arts correspondent.

Sam and Claus have both performed Karate demos for Bushinkai including at Manchester Japanese Festival and at a Liverpool Fight Night.
Bushinkai chief instructor Simon Keegan also has a regular column on the site called Memoirs of a Bugeisha in which he tells a story from Japan’s ancient history and then reflects on that through his own training experiences.
