This solid foundation melds the old with the new; training in both traditional and modern day attacks. Attacks that include Shomenuchi and Yokomenuchi, all the way up to jabs, grabs and kick-punch and multiple-strike combinations.

Enhance your martial skills beyond just striking! Learn to control your opponent, and use his strength and aggression against him. Learn how not to get hit, grabbed or pushed. And most importantly, learn to use these types of attacks against your aggressor.

Learn the majestic art of ukemi! Many people look at Bushikan's technique and instantly think "I can't do that" or "He is killing that guy! I don't want to have that done to me!" What they do not understand, is the skill of ukemi allows the warrior who appears like he is being beat up, to pop right back up perfectly fine and attack again. Ukemi is the art of falling. It grants you the ability to take a full force punch or throw, at full speed and power, without injury or discomfort. It is a valuable skill that will last a lifetime and serve you in and out of the dojo.

Fitness can be much more engaging than lifting weights, running on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike. Come make friends and earn skills that will last you a lifetime.
