Seminar in Blairgowrie, Scotland

On Sunday 23rd November 2014 I will be teaching at seminar in Blairgowrie, Scotland! The seminar will run from 1pm to 5pm and will focus of pre-emption and reaction. This will include a look at the modern legalities and traditional ethics of striking first; as well as guidance on how to take control of a situation with the first move. Following on from that we will look at reaction which will make use of the body’s instinctive flinch response and how traditional kata (i.e. Kanku-Dai / Kushanku, Naihanchi / Tekki, Unsu, etc) teach us to capitalise on such innate actions.
