Washin-Ryu is a traditional Okinawan martial arts style led by Master Hidy Ochiai. This form of martial arts incorporates aspects of aikido, jiu jitsu, kickboxing, and karate. It stresses physical fitness, self-defense, sparring for sport, mutual respect, safety, and discipline. Progress is at your own pace. No uniforms are necessary. Wearing comfortable clothes is all that is required. Washin-Ryu does not cost anything. There are no individual expenses. The instructors are high ranking black belts who have decades of experience teaching and were former national and/or Olympic class champions. This club also performs demonstrations and self-defense seminars for the University residential halls, as well as for cultural clubs and various events throughout the academic year. In addition, the club participates in a karate tournament every spring on the BU campus. Practices are held throughout the academic year every Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the West Gym. Come in your leisure time and enjoy the workout!
