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!

Events

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).
