Manchester Karate and Jujutsu

Bushinkai teaches a system of Karate and Nihon Jujutsu called Hakuda Kempo Toshu Jutsu.

Toshu Jutsu signifies the art’s roots as an old method of Karate (read about Motokatsu Inoue’s traditional system of Kobudo which also uses the old term Toshu Jutsu). To-Shu is an alternative pronunciation of Kara-Te. Toshu Jutsu is the original fighting method of Okinawa transmitted by masters like Sakugawa, Matsumura and Azato.

Hakuda Kempo, along with Taijutsu and Yawara are terms that predate the term Jujutsu when referring to Japanese grappling systems. The name Hakuda was originally used in Yoshin Ryu. The style of Yoshin Ryu was united with Karate by master Hironori Ohtsuka (10th Dan Kokusai Budoin), the founder of Wado Ryu.

See some Yawara style applications in Shotokan performed by Gichin Funakoshi.

Although most people think of Jujutsu as being a Judo-like grappling art, many styles of Jujutsu/Yawara such as Yagyu Shingan Ryu are closer in appearance to Karate.

Our Karate method also has much in common with the Chinese internal martial arts making it a truly well rounded system.

Hakuda Kempo Toshu Jutsu is an effective and true system of Karate, Jujutsu and Kobudo that also reflects many of its related arts in the systems of China.
