SEYMOUR-SOUTHBURY — Bushi Ban CT, Klarides Village Dr., Seymour, and 1257 Southford Rd., Southbury, offers instruction in the martial arts with a life skills focus. Sensei John Lombardo, regional director, told Voices that the school does not take a sports approach, although some students do elect to compete. “We offer self-confidence and self-discipline and show how those values can apply to schoolwork, family life and professional jobs,” he said. “Bushi Ban creates better citizens through the martial arts.”
