Bushi Goya-Ra-Ru (Martial Arts) Association
There are currently several different associations dedicated to practicing Goya-Ra-Ru Marital Arts throughout the country. The core values, techniques and kata are very similar, although each group has its own identity. The different associations are generally distinguished by geography, our group being based in the West Midlands for example.
Our group is known as the Bushi Goya-Ra-Ru Association. Bushi (pronounced boo-she) is another name for Samurai (warrior). Goya-Ra-Ru is broadly the style of martial art practiced at our clubs.
