Budokon, abbreviated BDK, is an all embracing hybrid movement system created by mixed martial artist Cameron Shayne in 2001, that combines Yoga with Calisthenics, animal locomotion, mobility training and striking and grappling techniques. 


The word Budokon derives from the Japanese syllables BU (warrior) DO (way) and  KON (spirit), and translates as "The way of the warrior spirit". It was named for the spirit one must posses in order to change the changeable and make peace with the unchangeable. 


Budokon style Yoga is a dynamic, physically challanging Yoga style that synchronises classical Hatha Yoga with martial arts, calisthenics and animal locomotion.  Life science and Zen Buddhism are its' philosophical pillars. 

The foundation of Budokon Yoga  is the Primary Series, which consists of 7 intelligently assembled sections of slow and controlled movements designed to improve mobility, agility, flexibility and strength. The techniques are learned through repetition and precision, the emphasis being on the transitions from posture to posture, rather than the holding of postures. The purpose of this class is to gain muscular strength, cardiovascular stamina, and joint mobility, while sharpening focus and fostering self observation. 

Susanne teaches Budokon Yoga, and includes mobility and animal locomotion practices in her Yoga and bodyweight training classes. She is one of a few teachers offering this practice in Italy. 


Budokon is for movers of all types seeking the highest level of agility, mobility, stamina, and strength.
