What do we offer?

The Bushido Fighting System is a concept that will provide you with the confidence, skills and ability to successfully control a self defence situation. We are also specialists at honing current Martial Arts’ skills to improve and coach for forthcoming gradings/displays/tournaments. There is no fixed style within Bushido which enables us to use a variety of techniques and training methods from different martial arts and exercise systems.

The Shotokan Karate classes (Adult and Kids) provide a solid base for a martial arts career. With the traditional Katas, Kumite and Kihon you can develop the true artistic side of the art, and/or pull the benefits of the training methods through to the more varied training of the Bushido Fighting System.

Our kids club has been designed to be fun, interesting and healthy. Sadly the news has been full of stories about youth stabbings and attacks in recent years and so I think it is imperitive that we generate interest in martial arts from an early age to give our innocents the chance to defend their safety in todays society.

The increased safety for our children from training at an early age is of course only one of the benefits for your child of joining Dragons. With childhood obesity on the increase along with more and more children suffering from learning dificulties and respiratory related problems, martial arts can help with all of these conditions.

"I myself was initially taken to a Karate club by my parents at the age of five as a last ditch attempt to get me involved in an exercise that could help me. At the age of 5 weighing little more than 4 stone, suffering with extremely sever bronchil asthma and being the least confident child in the school, I needed help and focus. Karate has given me confidence over the years and a keen interest in what goes on in my body. Now at the age of 29 I am considered to be one of the most confident and healthy people in my friendship groups. I owe it all to the way Karate has taught me to look at life and challenges." - Chief Instructor Kevin Archibald

The Bushido Fighting System is a concept that will provide you with the confidence, skills and ability to successfully control a self defence situation.

We concentrate more on practical application and use a variety of techniques that work from day one, rather than waiting to attain a certain belt before working on grappling techniques or advanced striking.

We are also specialists at honing current Martial Arts’ skills to improve and coach for forthcoming gradings/displays/tournaments.
