Your gate to the world of martial arts:  

 

The Beginner’s Induction in Salford runs every Wednesday and Friday and offers an insight into Missing Link in Manchester. It focuses on Renzoku Waza (flow drills), basic techniques and general principles. You will learn hands-on in a small, friendly group. 

You are always welcome to join for some sweat, fun and bruises (don’t worry, not too much of the latter, but a lot of the first two). 

 
Missing Link Martial Arts connects tradition, modern applications and two of the biggest sources of Martial Arts: China and Japan. It unlocks the actual fighting content within the art and the philosophy behind it. We care deeply for Modern Application: Urban self defence, health and fitness, inner balance and well-being. Regular beginner’s inductions open the art for new starters, and if you are an experienced martial artist, Missing Link might be the next big step in your personal development.

Find your flow, health, fitness and inner balance. Not all of it in the first lesson, but you will definitely:  

  • Punch
  • Kick
  • Lock some joints
  • Try flow drills
  • Get some hints for posture, relaxation and everyday training
  • Find out about general martial arts principles

Every lesson includes valuable information for coping with conflicts, self defence and personal health and fitness. It will give you an insight into martial arts and help you decide whether this is something you want to do more often.
