(AKA THE NUNCHUCK PRINCESS)
Born and raised in London, Japanese-Ashkenazi Mana has a background in art direction and casting, working globally with brands such as Burberry, Celine, MCQ (Alexander McQueen), Loewe, and Versace. Implementing a fiercely equitable ideology within her work, Mana shows this across the projects, creatives, and communities that she puts her weight behind.
When she founded Bugeisha Club, she was protecting those around her as a creative consultant, manager, and leader of an online nunchuck army.
Having started learning nunchucks earlier this year and sharing her training journey on TikTok, she has gone on to host practice sessions for women and non-binary people as well as a sold-out workshop at The Roundhouse. She has since been focusing on her vigilante career as The Nunchuck Princess, training in nunchucks, archery, gymnastics, horse riding, and the rope dart.
