Seminar in Keighley, West Yorkshire

On Sunday the 26th of November 2017 I will be conducting an open seminar at Jason Murrays Martial Arts and Fitness Centre in Keighley! The seminar will cover Naihanchi / Tekki-Shodan close-range striking and karate takedowns. Attendees will be taught a drill that covers the close-range striking aspect of Naihanchi / Tekki-Shodan. This drill flows through the whole kata, in the order of the kata, and is a great addition to the knowledge-base of all pragmatic karateka. In addition we will also look at the principles of karate takedowns (the four ways that people fall).
