Budokon United kingdom
Budokon UK is a fast growing multi-cultural community that welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Through mixed movement arts, Budokon brings people together with a deeper purpose than just movement. As a collective group, we hold each other accountable to strive to be the best version of ourselves possible. The effect... a positive ripple through the world - one student/sensei at a time! It is the way of the Bushido. The journey of realizing ones own inner warrior with a sense of inner peace achieved through Budokon's six pillar system. Join us!
The Budokon UK head office is based in London. For information about classes in other regions of the UK, please scroll down to the list of Budokon UK graduates. Any UK related Budokon inquiries should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Budokon Yoga Flow
A modern contemporary yoga class that draws on the freedom of creative sequencing cultivated in Vinyasa yoga and the circular nature of martial arts. Budokon is the art of seamless transition, coupled with the beauty of circular rotation, gaining functional strength, cardiovascular stamina, and joint mobility.
Teachers: Abi/ Hari/ Beko/ Jake/ Cat
Studio: Various/ 1:1 at your home
Time: Various times throughout week
BUDOKON YOGA & M.M.A
During the Yoga class we work on gradually building and developing our practice of the Budokon Primary Series. Then in the Mixed Movement Arts session we take this study deeper as we work our way through the journey towards Black Belt! The first session is free so come down and experience power, grace and flow!
The Mixed Movement Arts session covers Mobility, Calisthenics, Animal Locomotion, Kata, Striking Techniques, Pad work, Self Defence, 'Stand Up' Fighting/ Sparring and Ground Fighting/ Grappling/ BJJ. We gradually develop the levels of study, as we work our way through the journey towards Black Belt!
Budokon UK have run 5 nationwide events in 2017 (Brighton, Guernsey, London, Penrith & Limerick). We plan to host workshops and events at least every quarter in 2018 (including some new locations). As a general rule, we'll tend to avoid scheduling events for any month during which a European 5 day Mixed Movement Training Camp with Cameron & Melayne Shayne is taking place (they are usually held in May and September/ October). Most of the U.K teachers and many of their students will join our European brothers and sisters for these big 5 day events (a 3 day weekend intensive option is often also available).
