Amanda Bowes

Nidan 2nd Degree Black Belt
Certified Instructor
Tenchikan Dojo
International Seibukan Jujutsu Association

Sensei Bowes began her training at the Tenchikan dojo in 2012, earning 1st Dan in 2017, and certified instructor in 2020. In addition to teaching and nurturing new and existing students, she continues to pursue her own higher Dan levels in Seibukan, and trains in Enshin Itto-ryu Battojutsu.

Finding a martial art that isnít about being tough can be important when your young son expresses interest. Having had no martial arts back ground herself, the search began and ended with Seibukan Jujutsu. Sensei Bowes was looking for a martial art that would train for self-defense. Having a calm heart and confidence during conflict is something that comes with practice. When conflict arises, keeping yourself safe hopefully isnít at the expense of another human being. The bedrock of this art is healing and the improvement of society.

You can enter this art with any experience level and it brings new ideas and skills. Being stronger than your opponent doesnít necessarily make this art more effective. Seibukan Jujutsu is about balance, learning distraction, angles and leverage. If youíre smaller in stature, when you focus on the fundamentals of this style, makes it a very effective art for anyone. You learn to practice your awareness, on the mat, and in everyday life.

Sensei Mandy comments: "Seibukan Jujutsu is a true martial art experience and way of life. I am proud to be a member of this organization and enjoy sharing the art and the philosophy."
