Ever since I started Budo it has become a huge part of my daily life, whether that's training in a class, practising at home or in a private lesson. It has provided me with so many amazing opportunities to participate in competitions such as the British Championships or the Virtual World Championships of lockdown 2020. I am so grateful to Shidoshi Sinead for all the help, support, fun and guidance she has provided along the way.
Jay (Intermediate student)
This class is specifically for the more advanced and experienced students who have trained for a number of years and have achieved the rank of purple belt or higher. But is also suitable for older beginners age 14+
This class teaches well beyond the basics of our Kenbu style, focusing in depth within the system and perfecting movement, fitness, flexibility and all-round martial arts skills, from self defence to sport competition. There will be certainly something for everyone to try and to challenge themselves, and that’s a guarantee.
It is assumed at this stage of your training that students are dedicated and committed to their training and plan to continue for many years to come. Some students at this level have the goal of Black Belt or beyond, some want to become champions and compete for our tournament team, or dream of travelling to Japan to train with the greatest Shihan in the world, while others will simply enjoy training each week focusing on the many skills involved and creating vital habits that lasts a lifetime.
At this level students will also be able to apply for and join our Junior Kenbu Board. Who get selected annually to help make important decisions on training, goals and events throughout the year. Board members are a vital part of dojo life as they help ensure that the classes and events are in the best interest of all the students that attend them, keeping the classes fresh with ideas, and up to date. This ensures that all the board members get the most out of training as they have a platform to voice opinions and concerns throughout the year.
Also, there is the possibility of being a Junior Leader, who will learn the skills of teaching or coaching, while at the same time vastly improving their own knowledge and ability. This is the ideal programme for those students who are looking towards becoming Junior Assistant Instructors who have attained the level of brown belt onwards.
