Seminar in Chesterfield!

On the 24th of July 2016 I will be returning to Unit 1 in Chesterfield! The theme will be advanced karate gripping, trapping, and locking as found in the kata Chinto / Gankaku (prior knowledge of the form is not necessary). Chinto / Gankaku was a big influence on the development of the Pinan / Heian series, so this seminar will also be an opportunity to get a deeper insight into those forms too.
