2019 year plan

Happy new year to all.

2019 will be another busy year for Poole Bushido.

The first interclub is planned for 2nd March at the martial arts centre and it is hoped that this will be an annual event with co host Rising Sun Martial arts based in Romsey.

2018 finished off with many successful gradings for the juniors and while the club is busy with juniors the plan is to grow the classes bigger and spread, potentially opening another venue at Poole High School, watch this space.

The main focus for any martial arts club is to have experienced quality students on the open stage. Coming through the ranks are three brown belts with two hopefully grading for their 1st dan black belts early in the year. At the moment the junior section of the club has one junior purple belt who should be graded later in the year to brown and 4 blue belts who again should grade late in the year for purple. The younger section of the juniors are of mixed low grades. student retention is going to be a big focus for 2019.

Two senior black belts should also be grading to 2nd dan and to keep this on track many extra training sessions are planned with external visits to other Bushido clubs as well as local ju-jitsu clubs which are the Rising Sun Martials arts club run by Sensei Dave Scanlan 5th Dan & Dorchester Ju-jitsu Club run by Sensei Kevin King 7th Dan.

Weapons training will now regularly feature every Saturday after the junior session which will be open to adults also.

New embroidered Gis are now in place at the club with Poole Ju-jitsu across the back with the Bushido logo on the front right lapel. Hoodie's & T-shirts are been designed so hopefully these will be out before the summer.

The Bristish Ju-jitsu Championships & Kokoro Kai championship are also in the diary with other courses, seminars on the cards its going to be a busy year.

Wishing everyone a happy new year and all the best for 2019.

  12. Bushido Ju-jitsu course 2019
    Bushido members from around the country gathered at the HQ for the 2019 official Bushido training course. The Poole members were George Pearce, Karen Nuttall & Liam Walkey who met up at the Holiday inn in Ellesmere Port in the canal district. After settling in and enjoying dinner washed down with a couple of beers or two there was only a few hours before getting up early for breakfast.
    Members were gathering at 10.00 am at the Dojo meeting up and chatting with friends before starting the official course. Opening the days training were displays by the junior’s members of the academy which was enjoyed by all the parents, students & instructors.
    After the official opening students were split up between Juniors & adults & Dan grades on different mats. A Special treat for the black belt mat was Sensei James Pape 10th Dan taking the session of variations on restraint’s which were extremely enjoyed due to the Uki’s attempt in trying to escape the various techniques.
    The course finished with official photos and heading back to the hotel for a welcome swim & sauna. The evening gala dinner started in full swing with senior club instructors been presented with a engraved Tanto chiefs knife. The evening went long in to the night with George playing card tricks to everyone Karen downing the wine & Liam demolition the food.
    Been a member of the academy highlights the family values of the clubs & Bushido academy and as a senior instructor I feel very privileged in been able to teach & pass on my experience I’ve picked up during my 32 years in martial arts.
