No prior knowledge of the kata is needed. The name of the kata translates as something like, “hold ground and suddenly destroy”. The name of the kata reflects the applications it encapsulates! The event is open to all styles and grades. The seminar will run from 10am to 2pm and will be held in Junboku Dojo, Beck Mill, Reva Syke Road, Clayton, Bradford, BD14 6QH.
