Seminar in Chesterfield!

On Sunday the 24th of March 2019 I will be returning to Unit 1 in Chesterfield! On this seminar we will be looking at gripping and clinch skills. These “tegumi” methods were a standard part of karate practise in the past. An understanding of these methods is vital for close-range fighting and for understanding the traditional kata. Iain will also teach his two-person ground fighting kata which he uses in his own dojo to teach core holds and escapes.
