Deriving from karaté, nanbudô is a traditional martial art teaching fight forms (randori no kata), dodging techniques, kata as well as breathing and stretching exercises. It comes from the origin of life: breathing.
Created by Master Yoshinao NANBU, this martial art is an excellent self-defense technique against various daily aggressions. The boundless energy of each one of us, often misdirected, is here used as part of fluid and dynamic movements.
It is a non-violent discipline which aims at dissuading and neutralizing the opponent’s aggressivity; it is based on simplicity and natural gestures.
Nanbudô practitioners invite you to join them at the Budô area to assist at demonstrations and participate in initiations: no need to be an accomplished athlete to give this martial art a try!
