Welcome to MayoShinDo

MayoShinDo is a modern martial art for a modern world although it is based on traditional Japanese and Chinese styles. Movement is as near "natural" as possible. MayoShinDo karate is primarily a striking art with blocks, avoidance, take-downs, locks, weapons, falling and groundwork - all included in a set syllabus for each grade. There are kata (forms) for all grades. Paired or group practice is non-contact and there is no breaking, shouting or hardening of fists. Mitts, shields, bags etc are used to test a student's focus, accuracy and power. MayoShinDo Judo is known as “Ju Judo” because it is a “gentle” way and does not use strength but reacts to partner’s movement. Clubs are based around Oxford and West Cornwall.
