Bushin Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a fusion of Martial Arts including Thai Boxing (Muay Thai), Karate, Boxing & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). We use hands, feet, elbows and knees as striking tools, then takedowns and groundwork, which show you how to control and submit an opponent using pressure or submission techniques.

It blends traditional and modern techniques along with combat based martial arts.

 

FAQ's

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

When you first come you should wear loose sports clothing such as jogging bottoms, t-shirt and trainers. You can buy the club uniform when you become a member so there is no need to buy a special outfit straight away. Bring a bottle of water as well, Martial Arts is thirsty work.

WHAT DOES A CLASS CONSIST OF?

ARE THE CLASSES SUITABLE FOR GIRLS/WOMEN?

Yes the classes we run are open to all regardless of sex, religion or age.
Everyone is treated equally.

 

WILL I GET HURT?

DO I HAVE TO

BE FIT?

Absolutely not. Martial Arts will build the fitness you require to train. Martial Arts is famous for training the mind and internal health as well as fitness. All we ask is that you do your best.

CAN I COME ON
MY OWN?

Typically a class is made up of three main areas. Fitness, Technical & Sparring. Within this we teach self defense techniques with a partner, plenty of pad or ground work and supervised sparring (once students have reached a certain level).

Martial arts by its nature is a contact activity, and yes accidents can happen. Therefore, you should expect very occasional bumps and knocks (Nothing more than you expect in the school playground). Every precaution is taken to ensure your safety. The aim is to improve your ability to defend yourself and not for you to get injured each time you attend a class.

We recognise that it can be intimidating for some people to take that first step through the door. We make sure that everyone is made welcome. Your first lesson is free of charge with no commitment so that you can make sure that you are happy with both our teaching style and the atmosphere of the school before joining.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be pleased to help.
