Yamabushi Ryu is a traditional school with traditional values. We maintain substantial links with Japan, and our training reflects the teachings and values of the mountain warrior, which encompass many fascinating aspects of the martial arts and philosophies.

The school seeks to emulate the traditional principals of warrior enlightenment. Within the confines of our dojo, the student should find peace, harmony and love, the seeds of which should be planted in their heart and nurtured by their training. As well as martial endeavours, students are taught to strive hard to perfect themselves inwardly through mindfulness and meditation.
