Mr. Blackford's Overview:

Isshin Bushi Ju-Jitsu has it all.  Stand Up, Ground Fighting, and Self- Defense, as well as the mental focus it cultivates. As for me, it is one of my personal resources in the development of my spiritual path.  There are always new techniques to learn, and learned ones to perfect, and with which to be challenged.  I have been a student of Sensei Gary Bush for 10 years.  I am constantly learning new material, and do not have to worry about being hurt by (or feeling like I have to hurt) others wanting to prove themselves.  I have found this school to be unique, in that it is certainly not a fight club.  It is most accurately described as a learning institute.  The majority of the students that are members here, are mostly here to learn practical self and family defense.  I also include myself foremost in this group.  However, at this point in my life, I am also choosing to pursue the competitive edge, through various competition styles, such as Sport Ju-Jitsu, Full Contact, No Holds Barred, etc.  Ultimately, I would like to be recognized for my passion to teach others.  I am also available for private instruction by appointment.
