Professional Coaching in Judo Aikido and Self-Defence for  Schools and the Community Throughout Torbay & the South-hams

Judo (the gentle way) is a Japanese wrestling style and was developed in Japan by Dr Jigoro Kano towards the end of the 19th century and has evolved from being a martial art into one of the world’s most popular sports. Since its inclusion in the 1964 Olympic Games Judo has progressed rapidly and is without doubt the world’s most popular combat sport.

Aikido (the way of spirit and harmony) Morihei Ueshiba developed Aikido more or less at the same time as Judo; Aikido however has remained a pure martial art, has no competition element and emphasises co-operation and respect between partners.

Ronindo Budo Kai is a member of the British Aikido Board through Shin Gi Tai Aikido society. See your instructor to obtain your BAB licence.

Our philosophy is not simply to follow the traditional teachings but to re-examine the principles that make them work. We therefore include in Ronindo a variety of specialist skills that are not taught anywhere else. Once mastered these skills make throws appear effortless, by using the principles of attacking the weak line and gravity-assisted power.

With Ronindo Budo Kai in Judo and Aikido is much more than a sport; it is also effective as an educational system in both physical and moral spheres. Ronindo Budo Kai training is an ideal form of physical exercise and serves as a great cardiovascular workout, improving, stamina, general Health and overall fitness. Physical strength is also increased as a direct result of manipulating the movement of your training partner. As well as enhanced power, a Ronindo Budo Kai pupil will improve their flexibility. For the same reasons the balance and posture of pupils will be enhanced. Physical co-ordination can be seen to develop dramatically from participation in Ronindo Budo Kai training; reflexes are also improved together with mental reaction time.

The moral benefits of Ronindo Budo Kai are a direct result of the transition of both Judo and Aikido from Jujitsu’s to “Do’s” or “ways of life”. Both arts have a strict code of ethics and a humanitarian philosophy. They teach outstanding examples of good character and honest conduct. These arts are ultimately concerned for the well being of both the individual and the community. One of Judo’s guiding principles is “mutual benefit and prosperity”. Both Kano and Ueshiba believed that the diligent practice of their arts should lead to the realization that one could not progress at the expense of others; only mutual prosperity offered the key to any real progress in life. These principles still underpin the arts today. Ronindo Budo Kai is an ideal club for all ages, male or female.

Confidence and self-esteem are improved as pupils’ progress through the ranks. The very nature of the grading system ensures that the next goal is always realistic and achievable with effort. The grading system also ensures that regardless of their skill level all Ronindo Budo Kai pupils practice with players of similar ability and all participants have a positive learning experience. Budo etiquette instils respect, modesty, politeness and general social skills in all participants. Although Judo and Aikido are derived from techniques that were traditionally used in Japan on the battlefield - these techniques have been refined and modified to make them safe. The object of Judo contest being to throw or hold the opponent onto their back, this wins the bout. Naturally pupils are taught to fall in such a manner that they land safely, great emphasis is placed on mastering the several methods of break falling since this gives pupils the confidence to participate fully. Aikido training is, based on movements derived from the Japanese sword and staff battle arts. Competition is less important as pupils co-operate with one another to enhance their learning.

Ronindo Budo Kai will also actively reduce bullying. Bully’s can only operate in relatively uncontrolled environments and the disciplined Dojo (training hall), removes them from their position of power. At the same time they themselves learn discipline and self control, quite often whilst losing to players who were previously a victim of their bullying. This gives them a new perspective and a new found respect for such players.
