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 & concentration, physical & mental discipline, high ethical values, lifelong learning, performance readiness, strategic thinking & planning, determination, decisiveness, empathy, & the skill to harmonize opposites.
Interestingly, all the people we consider “successful” in today’s world also have all the above qualities. The Japanese Martial Arts serve as a role model to the modern society and those who go down the path of Budo learn how to build/learn these qualities to become more effective at all tasks of life.
The Japanese Budo Arts serve as role model adn tool for anyone to implement into his/her life. 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. Read the other FAQs for a better understanding of each of these two courses.
What subjects & content will be covered in the 2 Day Weekend Course?
Our 2-day program provides hands-on training to those willing to invest in themselves and their lives through the ancient Japanese practices.
Participants learn the methodology of how to apply the experiential training of martial arts to life and work situations. You will be educated ontopics such as goal setting, building confidence, conflict management and much more.
What subjects & content will be covered in the 3 Month Intensive Course?
The 3-month course takes into account the knowledge that students have and usesit to form the best habits over time. It has been a more intense, yet rewarding experience for all our past customers.
The 3-month course will reward the practitioner with a practical experience of leadership, teamwork and mindfulness. We guarantee that both your mind and body would not have experienced anything like what our course offers.
What is the difference between the two courses?
The 2-day course opens the practitioners’ eyes to the many possibilities and potential of himself and his surroundings. You may think of the 2-day course as an icebreaker to the deep world of Japanese Martial Arts.
Although the long 3-month course requires immense commitment, perseverance and effort, this training gives the Budoka a sense of purpose and a deep understanding and appreciation of the Martial Arts. The course helps the student to cultivate and maintain the positive habits and apply them to practical life for their betterment.
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-months. There are 3 classes per week, each lasting an hour. Two of these weekly classes are practical lessons (with movements) and the other one class is based on theoretical explaining and intellectual exploration of the body and its surroundings.
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 get in your way. 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.
The form of Martial Arts that you will learn with us may have the same content, but it focuses on a completely different aim, which has nothing to do with physical violence.
Is there any Risk of Injuries?
Every physical activity entails a certain risk of injury.
Still, traditional Martial Arts is a low to minimal risk activity. Since the training is based on respect and focus, injuries usually are never more than bruises and soreness. As the classes and practice sessions are undertaken through a pre-decided routine, the risk of injury becomes minimal.
Will I learn any deadly punches & flying Kicks?
Now is the time to burst some myths: our training is not what you see on TV, movies and other media. The aim of Martial Arts is not to perform fancy maneuvers, but to promote personal growth and instill a sense of winning.
Our program is strictly designed to get you to know and discover your own body, mind and spirit. It’s not meant to be used as an offensive weapon to hurt others.
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 a light energetic drink 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 major commitment. Our philosophy is that grit, empathy, confidence, focus, self-control and mindfulness only come to you if you actually experience it through and within your own body.
Therefore, our courses help you both learn about the Arts and experience it in the practical lessons. If you initially find the courses hard to get used to, don’t be afraid! It is just the body’s reaction to positive. internal change.Our course is designed after all to engage all your senses—promoting the true meaning of mindfulness.
