Bushinkai: Now recruiting new students

Bushinkai teaches a Karate and Jujutsu system with a difference. Hakuda Kempo Toshu Jutsu is the best of the old and the best of the new. it goes back to the days when Karate was a combat method not a sport. But it is also on the cutting edge of self defence.

Classes are held:

Van Dang Martial Arts (Hakutora Dojo)
Newton Street Manchester

If Shotokan, Wado Ryu and Goju Ryu are branches of Karate then Hakuda Kempo Toshu Jutsu is the trunk.

Toshu Jutsu is traditionally taught in terms of the content of its kata, bunkai, weapons and drills. It is a complete Karate system that we like to think is very much in keeping with the Karate practiced by the art’s original pioneers in Okinawa.

What makes Toshu Jutsu different however is that as well as being true to the art’s heritage it is also true to the realities of self defence.

The Bushinkai Method is fiercely pragmatic and combat orientated and students are taught the realities of self protection from day one.
