Martial Arts Mullingar

 

The Martial Art we teach is called Genbukan Martial Arts and our dojo name is Sanzen Genbukan Dojo.

We are a family run Martial Art that teach children the value of Manners, Discipline and Respect. We teach adults Awareness, Confidence and Self Defence for all situations. We are a very old Martial Art and continue to teach the old ways. Children must learn how to escape from danger and know the difference between right and wrong. A clever Martial Artist does not need to fight but knows how to defend themselves when there is no other option.

Our family run club in Mullingar is designed as a traditional Japanese dojo with male and female changing rooms and a seated area for parents so you can enjoy a coffee and watch the class. We have a relaxed atmosphere but are dedicated to imparting knowledge and good manners while learning self defence with fun and games in a traditional environment

Our adult classes are structured exactly the same as our head dojo in Japan (Honbu) and teach in the traditional Japanese manner. You do not have to be big, strong or very fit to start Martial Arts you just have to walk in the door.

Health benefits:

Traditional Martial Arts are renowned for their health benefits. Fitness will develop over time in a very positive way. What is not so well known is the mental health benefits. When you are learning something that has depth and enjoying yourself at the same time the benefits to mental health are enormous. You are physically and mentally moving all the time. Challenging the body and the mind in a positive environment

We remain true to our traditions and train directly under world renowned Ninpo Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura


Location:

We are the Shogun Martial Arts training centre next to Mileys Garage Dublin Bridge, Austin Friars street (Dublin Road) Mullingar. There are plenty of car parking facilities around us within a two minute walk including one free car park just over the bridge and Super Value just around the corner

ABOUT US

At the Shogun Martial Arts training centre in Mullingar co Westmeath we teach Genbukan Ninpo along with traditional Japanese Jujutsu which itself is a complete Martial Art combining the oldest forms of Koryu Karate as well as weapons and every aspect of unarmed combat. The aim of traditional Martial Arts is to avoid conflict and win without fighting and for that reason the highest level unarmed techniques are trained and mastered both in the body and the mind. Children do not learn how to fight but how not to fight while at the same time capable of defending themselves with confidence and skill through awareness and discipline
Ninpo is an ancient martial art dating back 2,700 years in Japanese recorded history and is passed through the generations via family lines. Traditionally, in any generation there can only be one Grandmaster and keeper of a traditional school.
Chief Instructor Martin O'Raghaillaigh holds the rank of 6th dan in Ninpo and 6th dan Jujutsu. He is one of the rare Martial Artists in the west that holds authentic Japanese titles in ancient traditional Japanese schools of Martial Arts
