I have trained with Bushido Bristol for over nine years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. As a result my coordination, confidence, body awareness, physical abilities and mind-set have dramatically improved.
I love the small adult only classes, and the depth of knowledge and the passion that the subject is taught with, I always leave the dojo feeling fantastic.
I have been a student of sensei D.C for over a decade now. No two lessons have ever been the same. There is always a fresh approach, deeper level of understanding and opportunity for self development. These lessons have extended besyond the world of martial arts and into life itself.
It is a great honour for me to be able to share some of what I have learnt, this I do to the best of my ability. I am proud to be a student and proud to be a teacher at the Bushido Bristol dojo.
I have been training for a number of years now and have to say that I have greatly enjoyed my time training! I have learned a lot both mentally and physically, have developed skills I never thought possible and feel much better as a more coordinated, confident and fitter person.
I would highly recommend for anyone looking to learn in a positive environment, to develop as a person or looking for a good challenge!
I have been training with Bushido in the Bristol Dojo for almost 3 years and would highly reccomend it to anyone looking to learn Martial Arts. I am now achieving things I never would have dreamed possible!! Sensei and his team of black belts are both inspirational and patient and I feel honoured to be part of this Acadamy.
During my time in the school I've learned a lot about how to handle myself, not just in combat but also in day to day living. This is due to the fantastic philosophy that is taught alongside the martial arts. The people who train here are all wonderful individuals. There are no egos or one-up-man-ships. Everyone is in the same boat and we help each other progress. There is a real sense of connection to your peers and your Sensei. This school has opened my eyes to the reality and wonder of what it is to be a modern day martial artist. I hope it can do the same for you
Afer two years of Bushido I am learning not only how to defend myself, but developed as a person. Sensei Dan Couzens and his team have helped me grow in fitness, confidence and determination in a positive environment.
Sensei and his team are exceptional in their energy and commitment to growing us as martial artists and people. My physical abilities and self awareness continue to grow and I’m excited for what the future holds! It’s fantastic to be part of the Bushido community.
I started training with the school 9 years ago and in that time I have been studying martial arts to a level that has surpassed my expectations. I also feel I have developed another level of confidence that has allowed me to explore abilities in other areas. It's a great school and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Good quality high energy martial arts with passionate instructors. Initially started learning Bushido Karate form, which is great for conditioning and have also moved on to Aikido and weapons for fluidity of movement and mobilisation of joints.
I have been training with Bushido Bristol Martial Arts for a year and a half and have found that I have increased my fitness, flexibility and awareness. I have previously studied various martial arts but find that the instructors here are able to look at you as an individual and offer specific training to increase your skill level. I enjoy the discipline and artistry of the style as well as developing my focus and self awareness.
I've been studying martial arts with Bushido Bristol for roughly two years and I honestly can't imagine my life without it. It's been amazing learning from some of the best teachers I've met, my fitness, confidence and state of mind have improved so much. I kind of love this. You will too.
I've been coming to Bushido Bristol Martial Arts for 7 months now and in that time, i have felt definite improvements physically and mentally. I feel more alert and my body awarness has increased.
I have been a student of Sensei D.C and Bushido for more than 11 years, it has been a journey of discipline and self growth which I would not change for anything. Bushido provides a great platform to acheive fantastic martial arts and weapon skills, taught by passionate and inspiring instructors, combined with an exploration of philosophies and concepts to broaden ones mindset and potential. I feel privileged to have trained for this long and gained so much from a great group of like-minded teachers and students. I look forward to what the future holds for anyone who will join and start their own journey.
I started training with Bushido Bristol two years ago and studying martial arts has helped me develop and improve in different aspects. I am more aware of my body, more confident. Bristol Bushido is really about self development and I surely recommend it.
I have wanted to study martial arts for years, but I never found the right place. As soon as I took my first steps into the Dojo I felt welcome. The teaching is great and the instructors will answer any questions without hesitation. My confidence has grown immensley in the short time I have been here, and I wonder why I didn't start earlier.
I have been practicing Bushido for the last 2 years and I feel that all the people I started with and me have all improved incredibly. Dan Couzens has a gift to transmit knowledge with great passion and enthusiasm whilst maintaining high standards of hard work and focus.
I only joined around a month or so ago and it has been one of the better choices I have made. The atmosphere is friendly and energetic as well as teh instructors being numerous and helpful. If your on the fence about joining I recommend you give it a shot.
I started with Bushido 3 and half years ago. Since then I have experienced great improvement both physically and mentally. The passion for growth and continuous development comtinues to stimulate me. Great dojo, Great people.
