Budokon translates directly in Japanese as (BU) Warrior, (DO) way, (KON) spirit. â€œWay of the Spiritual Warriorâ€
Budokon is the first and only arte to integrate yoga, martial arts and living arts into one complete system. It is a true evolution of movement that must be experience to be understood. Budokon was created in 2000 by Cameron Shayne.
The Budokon physical practice draws upon ancient and modern yogic and martial arts styles. The foundation of the Budokon physical practice is precision, alignment and Zen mind. The practice dances between agility, control, speed, power, balance and flow. The physical practice is divided into two themes: The Yogic Series, and the Budo Series. Both themes constantly draw from and depend on each other.
The Budokon Yogic Series was heavily influenced by Iyengar and Ashtanga yogic techniques and alignment. The focus is on control, calm , power and precision.
The Budokon Budo Series is a combination of standing and ground techniques drawn primarily from Karate-Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Capoeira, Tai-Chi and Olympic Style Tae Kwon Do. The objective of this series is to teach agility, power, focus and flow in the body and mind.
The Budokon Zen practice is seated meditation. Zen is about single minded living. Zen is about freedom from our own ideas. This practice is the foundation of Budokon and weaves its way through everything we do.
â€œThe way we do anything is the way we do everythingâ€ - Kancho Cameron Shayne
