What is Budo?
Budo is classified as the Martial Arts of Japan. All Budo Arts have one common goal. The search for mastery. A Budoka, someone who is walking the path of a Japanese Martial Art is seeking the way to perfection and mastery. On this journey, the student develops virtues such as goal setting & achievement, grit, focus, physical & mental discipline, high ethical values, lifelong learning, performance readiness, strategic thinking & planning, determination, decisiveness, empathy, & the skill to harmonize opposites. Successful people have precisely those skills and virtues mentioned above in common. How do you learn such skills and virtues and the grit it takes to walk this path?
The Japanese Budo Arts serve as role model. Anyone who has walked the path of Budo has developed precisely those skills.
What kind of courses do you offer?
We offer two different kind of courses. A 2 day weekend course and a 3 month intensive leadership & team building course.
What subjects & content will be covered in the 2 Day Weekend Course?
The Two Day program provides hands-on, body-on training. Participants learn the methodology of how to apply the experiential training of martial arts to life and work situations. You will experience topics such as goal setting, grit, confidence, conflict management and much more.
What subjects & content will be covered in the 3 Month Intensive Course?
The three month course takes the knowledge that students have experienced and forms habits. It is a more intense but very rewarding experience. The three month course will reward the practitioner with an embodied experience of leadership, teamwork and mindfulness. An experience that you can't get or find anywhere else.
What is the difference between the two courses?
The two day course opens the practitioners eyes to the possibilities and potential. However, as always in life, everything worth going to requires effort. The effort of the three month course rewards the practitioner with a much deeper understanding but also forms the habits to maintain, practice and cultivate the learned lessons.
How many classes does the 2 Day Weekend Course has?
The 2 day weekend course has two classes on Saturday and two classes on Sunday. One class each practical and one lecture.
How many classes does the 3 Month Intensive Course has?
The total length of the course is 3 month. There are 3 classes per week usually around the length of one hour each. Two of those weekly classes are practical with movements while one class per week is theoretical explaining and exploring with the intellect the bodily experience.
Do I need to have any Martial Arts experience or knowledge?
No. There is no need for any prior martial arts knowledge. In fact prior knowledge might even be in your way. Most martial arts are taught with competition as their goal. Our program strictly aims towards the pedagogical value and lessons of the martial arts and therefore there is no need for any prior martial arts knowledge. You will learn martial arts but as mentioned with a very different goal.
Is there any Risk of Injuries?
Every physical activity entails a certain risk of injury. However, traditional martial arts is actually a low to minimal risk activity. Since the training is based on respect and focus injuries usually are never more than bruises and soreness. Practice and training is done within a very structured manner that usually prevents injuries.
Will I learn any deadly punches & flying Kicks?
Our program as well as other traditional martial arts programs have nothing to do what the media portraits. Most martial arts are taught with competition (wining) as their goal. Our program is strictly designed to get you to know and discover your own body, mind and spirit. To become fully aware of what it truly means to be mindful. However, we are working on the flying kicks part.
What do I need to bring?
Our courses are separated in a practical part where you will be (very) active and a theoretical part. For the practical part we recommend for you to bring workout cloths. Bring a towel and something to refresh yourself, as well as a change of cloths for the theoretical part of the course. Bring some water and a towel.
What do I have to expect?
Both of our courses require commitment. Our philosophy is that grit, empathy, confidence, focus, self-control and mindfulness only come to you through actually experiencing it through and within your own body. This means that our courses always have a practical part where you have to move as well as a theoretical part where you listen through a lecture. Our course is designed after all to engage all your senses - the true meaning of mindfulness.
