On the 25th to 27th of May 2018, I am teaching an open practical karate / kata bunkai in Castlebar , Co. Mayo, Ireland! There are only 25 places available to guests and hence you are advised to act quickly in order to get your place.
I’m pleased to be able to announce that Kris Wilder and I will be teaching together at a two-day event in Oxfordshire, UK on the 30th of June and the 1st of July! The theme of the event will be “Reframing your art for the next level” and it will be open to karate practitioners of all styles.
On Sunday the 22nd of July 2018 I will be returning to Unit 1 in Chesterfield! This time we are going to look at crime statistics and studies to identify the most common self-defence scenarios and how the Pinan / Heian kata address these scenarios. The Pinan / Heian kata were created to be a complete physical self-defence system. This this seminar will show how, when correctly approached, the Pinan / Heian kata remain very relevant to today’s world. This seminar will also touch on weapons defence and dealing with group situations.
