What We Do
The foundation of streetfighting
The Bushin Blueprint
Bushin is designed to be simple to pick up. We have created a syllabus that will give you the basic tools you need to effectively defend yourself. We call this the Core. After that, we teach you how to adapt the Core into basic scenarios known as the Orbitals. Finally, you will pick up skills to add, evolve, develop and test it under pressure so you can create a truly unique fighting style you can call your own. This creates deeper layers of understanding what you have been taught which we call the Rings as you learn what style of fighting suits you best.
This is the Bushin Blueprint.
The starting point of the journey. These are the basics. Learn how to fight by mastering the simple strikes and throws, defence, and the movement. We drill these constantly to create a solid foundation to build on.
The next layer. Take the basics and learn to adapt them to an actual opponent in front of you. Get used to sparring with a live opponent, not just your reflection or pads. A completely different ball game.
Gain a deeper understanding on how each technique works. Take your knowledge,refine it and pressure test to build your own blueprint. There are infinite ways to do this; to simplify, we have split them into 8 categories.
Stand Up and Fight
Stand-up is where most street fights start and Bushin uses this as your foundation. As you master basic strikes and defences, learn how to combine them effectively. Develop your footwork to change the angles and keep your opponents guessing.
Ground 'n Pound
“Don’t go to ground!”
Ideally yes, but street fights often end up hitting the deck whether you want them to or not.
Learn stand up grappling and BJJ, essential for street survival, so you know how to win on the ground and get back on your feet.
Fights can occur anytime, any place, so you will need to know how to fight in numerous situations, whether sitting on the tube, lying down in the park, or with your back up against the wall.
Bushin keeps it simple in these scenarios. One tool for many jobs.
Fight One, Fight Many
So you can fight huh? How about against two? Three? A whole gang? Bushin teaches you how to adapt your tools to take on more than one attacker if necessary; a common occurrence in street situations. As you develop, we add more attackers into the mix to test you.
Knowing what to do, where to stand, and even how to act can make all the difference to winning the fight.
Street fighting is dirty and without rules.
Whether it is a kidney slap, an eye strike or an arm break, having these tools makes for a powerfully destructive style where no punches are pulled and no quarter is given.
Defence against an armed attacker is essential in modern day street violence, especially with knife crime on the rise.
Develop your basic tools to learn how to defend and build confidence against all manner of weapons, be it knife, bat, bottle or chain.
Pick Up A Stick
If you had a second to grab a weapon from your surroundings, what would it be? An umbrella? A rolled up newspaper? The stick is Bushin’s weapon of choice – versatile, lightning fast, simple to use, and devastatingly effective.
Learn how to even the odds and introduce stick to bone.
Prepare For Battle
Knowing how to fight is useless unless you are mentally prepared for battle. Using meditation techniques allows us to do this.
Learn how to breathe, relax, improve your health and posture, and concentrate. Being mentally prepared is useful for everyday life to destress, and also allows you to go from Gear 1 to Gear 5 in a blink of an eye.
