For a varied array of martial arts Thursday nights at Hakutora (Van Dang) in Manchester city centre offer a superb array of martial arts.
In the main top floor Dojo from 6:30-8:00pm is Muay Thai and Wing Chun and from 8:00pm is this Bushinkai Academy teaching Karate, Jujutsu and Kobudo. Meanwhile in the studio next door is Jeet Kune Do.
So why not have a go at different martial arts and see which suits you?
Bushinkai classes teaching Hakuda Kempo Toshu Jutsu (Karate, Nihon Jujutsu & Kobudo) are 8:00pm-9:30pm.
Here are some shots of Bushinkai chief instructor Simon sparring with Cobra of Siam Muay Thai chief instructor Giorgio earlier this week:
Of course for both styles sparring is only a minor part of the whole syllabus both of which include close quarters work, self defence and many more aspects of the two traditional arts.
And here are some shots from a previous sparring session:
