Learning Should Be Fun!

Whilst there will always be a serious side to learning martial arts, it should still be fun. If you aren't having fun then it makes the whole process of learning a martial art not much fun at all!

Nishikan Martial Arts
21 May 2018

It is with a heavy heart and deep regret, Paul, Brett & Steve have decided that the future of The Honbu and their clubs lie in a different direction to that of the rest of the Washinkai family and have decided to leave the association.

There is no malice in this decision and we would like to acknowledge the help and support we have received from the BTKA in the past.

We would like to thank Shihan Thompson and the rest of Washinkai for some wonderful years, but it is now time for us to move on, make some new memories and forge our own path.

The Honbu, its instructors and students make for a strong base to which we can develop our ideas and set our own agenda. It is business as usual for all our clubs and there are exciting times ahead. We hope that in the future we can collaborate and support other groups within the Karate world and look forward to forging new friendships as well as consolidating existing ones.
