Bushido Martial Arts - Batavia NY


Great teachers and a friendly atmosphere.
I guess it's fair to say Kyoshi Bellinger and I, as well as some others you'll recognize in the pictures, have known each other a long time. He has been a significant part of my Martial Arts training and I will forever be grateful that I was blessed to have him in my life. Hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane with me. I had to add the rest of the photos in the comments. This first one is at my Brown Belt with stripe test in 1994. I am happy he is in God's hands with his love Mary now. I know he'll still be watching over us in the Dojo.
What a great time!

Founder Kyoto Gerard Durant:

"I won a lot of trophies in my time, but I never kept a single one. I always give them to my students. That's right, I gave them away. I really don't need trophies sitting on my shelf at home 'cause I have the trophies that really count. My trophies are out on the dojo floor sweating their butts off. They are the trophies that count."

BUSHIDO MARTIAL ARTS is proud to introduce our newest Black Belts!!!

It was our honor to speak at Kyoshi Don Bellinger’s Funeral Service yesterday.

We are pleased to announce that Kyoshi Bellinger received his 8th Degree Black Belt 🥋 promotion yesterday. He earned this promotion prior to his passing, so we thought that the respectful thing to do was to present his Rank promotion to his family.

[04/05/19]   REMINDER there will be no Classes Saturday 4/6/19, as we will be attending the funeral for our beloved Kyoshi Don Bellinger.

[03/30/19]   Calling Hours and Funeral Services for Kyoshi Don Bellinger are as follows:

Calling hours: Friday April 5th 2-4pm and 7-9pm

Funeral Service: Saturday April 6th 10:30am at Lima Baptist church.

Burial for Don AND Mary will follow immediately at Avon Cemetery.

There will be a reception at the Lima Fire department after the Burial

With heavy hearts we announce this mornings passing of Kyoshi Don Bellinger.

Kyoshi was our mentor, our example, our guide, our teacher, our counselor, our strength. Our friend. Donnie is now in the Heavens with his loving wife Mary.

Our Martial Arts family lost a great man today. We will grieve for his biological family, and we will selfishly grieve for ourselves. But we find happiness and relief just knowing that he's no longer in pain.

RIP Sir. 06/11/1944 - 03/29/2019
