Our 4-week Introduction Course, valued at $120, covers 4 rotations of the various components of the spectrum of disciplines we practice in the Dojo.
weapons (hanbo/ bo)
Section - Kihon and Reiho
Kihon (fundamentals) and Reiho (ettiquette) forms the backbone of how we study the Martial Arts. Students will learn the customs, forms, and rituals of Japanese Martial Arts; as well as the fundamental movements and exercises involved in all training. Students will learn strength, conditioning, flexibility, movement, footwork, and many more techniques and drills.
Section - Judo
Judo (translated as the Gentle way) is a throwing and grappling art originating in the 1880's in Japan. It is based on traditional Japanese Jujutsu techniques, with adaptations to allow for safe practice of disruption of balance, throwing, locking, and restraining techniques.
Section - Karate
Originating in Okinawa, a small island south-west of mainland Japan, Karate consists of dynamic movements and uses predominantly punches, kicks, various strikes, and strong footwork as a method of self-defence.
Section - Hanbojutsu (The art of the half-staff)
Being as high as one's hip, such as a walking stick or cane, the Hanbo is a versatile and powerful weapon. Hanbo means 'half staff', as it is half the height of the Bo (another weapon students learn within our system). Students will learn the basics on how to handle and wield the weapon for defensive purposes.
