KICKBOXING

MUAY THAI BORAN

Welcome to The Dojo, Worksop

The Dojo was established in 1990, by current Principal Coach Neil Butkeraitis. ‘Dojo’ is the Japanese term which means ‘place of the way’ and is used for immersive learning and meditation for Martial Arts.

Throughout the years The Dojo’s membership and reputation has grown becoming one of the leading establishments for teaching Martial Arts for competitions, self-defence and fitness.

WHAT WE DO

We teach two styles of Martial Arts, each style is suitable for all age ranges and we cater for beginners through to professional fighters.

KICKBOXING

This style is mostly popular with junior students. Derived from the popular art of Kickboxing, our style focuses on the sport side of the art, which teaches controlled techniques. When following the competitions points system these techniques are used to become victorious. We also teach Wado Ryu katas alongside Kickboxing to promote the traditional side of Martial Arts, the katas come from the original teachings of Grandmasters of this style.
Gradings | Students are encouraged to progress through our belt system; our belt order is Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Brown-White, Brown-Black and Black. All of our grades are certified by the English All Styles Karate Organisation. We conduct gradings in the club every 3 months; following regular assessments students who are eligable will be put forward for these gradings by their coach.

MUAY THAI BORAN

Muay Boran is the original name of the Thai art before the introduction of modern equipment and rules in the 1930’s. We offer tuition in the traditional style of Muay Boran as well as the sport side known as Muay Thai.
Gradings | Students of Muay Thai/Boran are encouraged to follow our grading system, examinations are conducted every 3 months and if successful students are awarded a coloured Mongkol rather than a belt. A Mongkol is a sacred headband that symbolises a persons respect and loyalty to the club. In ancient times the Mongkol (headband) and Prajeit (armbands), were worn by Thai soldiers to go into battle. The Prajeit was often strips of cloth tied onto the soldiers arms by the family which served as talismans to ward off harmful spirits and also provide good luck when going into battle. The Mongkol means holy spirit, luck and protection. Both the Mongkol and Prajeit are still worn in modern ring sports as a sign of respect for the culture and teachings of Muay Thai Boran.

PPROGRAMMES/COMPETITIONS

KICKBOXING

Little Ninja Training Programme

Through experience we have found that positive coaching is the key to bringing the best out of our students. Several years ago, we introduced a Little Ninja Programme that is aimed at 4-10 years. We give each student a chart to place stickers on, these are given to them in classes for various techniques that they have learnt and then achieved. Once the chart has been completed they receive a special presentation with a Warriors Award.

Competitions

We offer students training to further their progress in competitions and championships if they would like to take this route. We have been very successful and produced many national and international title holders.

COMPETITION AND TITLE FIGHTS

We encourage all of our students who want to fight, to progress from local inter-club fights to World title challenges.
The Dojo is also members of the WMO (World Muay Thai Organisation) and the WMBF (World Muay Boran Federation).

MORE THAN JUST EXERCISE

As well as martial arts being fun, it can also increase a child’s confidence, self-discipline, focus in school, endurance and strength. We often hear parents saying that their kids who train at the Dojo have shown an improvement in school subjects, concentration, behaviour at home and self-esteem, as well as improvement in other hobbies that their children partake in.

OUR STORY

Over the years we have successfully achieved many national and international titles with our members of The Dojo. One of the highlights for us was representing England in Disneys Martial Arts Festival in Orlando, USA. We did this on 3 occasions gaining many medals and Grand Champions.
