Meet Our Instructors

  • Maciej Redel

    Assistant Instructor


    Maciej (aka ‘Mac’) joined Bushido’s Hombu dojo back in January 2015 as a martial arts beginner. His initial goal upon joining was to use Kata as moving meditation in order to de-stress after full day of work. However, after spending more time in the dojo he has discovered other aspects of karate. These days Kumite and Bunkai are his favourite parts of karate, “learning Bunkai techniques allows me to understand original applications of Kata moves in a self-defence situation; in Kumite I can put into practical use my karate knowledge”.
