Taking Martial Arts training with a Bo has been an incredibly cool leap for me. Bojutsu is a fascinating mixture of calm mental focus and elegant, powerful movement. Nathan Sir's skill and instruction is top notch and unique. It's awesome to have access to such a specialized course in our community where parents can train alongside their kids and everyone is fully encouraged and supported. The growth we've achieved in just a few months has been unbelievable. We always look forward to the classes, as they're just the right balance of fun and challenge. Highly recommend giving it a try!
For me it is about learning to keep the mind active. Having to use a Bo was new and something I've always wanted to use while training in a Martial Art. Our instructor is very respectful of his students and thrives to have the students do their best. It is a welcome environment. I can't wait to learn more.
