Budo Musashi Multi Martial Arts Club
Budo Musashi is a small multi martial arts club. The martial arts taught at our weekly classes at Stoke Damerel Parish Centre are Aikido, Aiki Jujitsu and Bukido (Japanese weapons).
The club is run by Chief Instructor John Piket. Budo Society Musashi started in 1990 in the Netherlands. After John got a job as an Exchange Officer in the Royal Navy In 2003, he started with Budo Society Musashi in England, at HMS Collingwood in Fareham.
In 2007, John retired from the Navy, after 33 years of service, and Budo Society Musashi was relocated to Plymouth, where John lives.
Besides running Budo Society Musashi, John teaches also Self Defence at HMS Raleigh, HMS Drake and the Naval College in Dartmouth.
John travels on a regular basis to Holland and Germany to teach and run courses.
Students of John are welcomed to join him on his travels and train with other instructors.
