This modern Japanese martial arts will get you fit and help with mindfulness. Based on weak points rather than brute strength, it is an ideal form of practical self-defence, particularly against larger opponents. The system focuses on the balance between 'hard' strikes (kicks and punches) and 'soft' grappling (escapes, locks and throws). We also incorporate restorative massage (seiho) and seated meditation (zazen). We focus on respect and cooperation rather than competition.
This Camden class is led by Kavita (3rd Dan) and Ofelia (1st Kyu) and will have focus practical self-defence techniques on Buffy-esq tv inspired moves. We are a female and LGBT friendly group and beginners are always welcome. You just need a bottle of water, some comfortable gym clothes, and an open mind. We also head to the pub afterwards for refreshement.
