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.
