Alex Fell Bowers 



Born in 1972, then at around eight years old his father began to teach him the noble art of boxing. His farther came from a long line of boxers. 

After he had gained a basic proficiency in the techniques his father started to introduce him to some throwing techniques  His Father never referred to the throwing techniques as any style in particular, they were just throws. 

In later years while learning ju jutsu he realised that these throws came from this school of thought and as they were simplified versions of ju jutsu techniques and coupled with a copy of William Fairbairn’s book ‘Get Tough’ the techniques were from Fairbairn’s ‘Defendu’ system. 

 When he was about ten years old his father took him to one of the local karate dojos where he spent many years learning the art of karate and through this art he was introduced to another Okinawan art called Kobudo. For those who don’t know this art covers the weapon techniques from Okinawa. The two arts should be seen as wheels on the same axle. 

When he was about 24 he saw a poster for a local aikido school and he decided to give it a bash. He progressed quite quickly as He had done some ju jutsu and there is quite a close relationship between the two arts as they share a common root. The aikido school was part of a much larger ‘Budo’ (martial tradition) association. In this school students not only had the opportunity to develop their aikido; but ju justsu kobudo, ken/iai jutsu (Japanese sword arts) and jo jutsu (Japanese short staff). The ‘Shihan’ (Chief Instructor) had spent 17 years living and training in Japan with some of the last old school masters and had been an advisor to the ‘Royal protection unit’ and this explained why some of the ‘special guest instructors that we had in every other month were only referred to as ‘coach’. One instructor who turned up one weekend I did know the name of was John lofty Wiseman. 

So where does the art he calls VIKING RUNE FIGHTING come from. 

Well he began training in its parent art in 1995 and he will tell you about it in his introductory class at the Bug Out Survival Show.
