What is BMA?
"Traditional Values in a Modern Style"
Bushido Martial Arts teaches a number of discrete styles of martial arts. The Karate style is a present day system, with its origin dating back to around 1900 from Goju Ryu, which at that time merged ideas from Chinese Kung Fu and Okinawan Karate.
The main traditional systems incorporated into BMA Karate are traditional Goju Karate, and Judo. The main modern competition techniques are from Kickboxing, Boxing and Thai-Boxing. We also utilise the skills of Ju Jitsu, Aikido, Kung Fu and Tae Kwon Do. Hence the reason for BMA Karate often being referred to as all styles or freestyle.
The Iaido style is also practiced. This is based on a traditional Japanese style of swordsmanship and also incorporates elements from Jodo, Kendo, and Ken-Jitsu.
