On Saturday 19th October 2019 I will be teaching in Exeter! The seminar will be covering the bunkai of the Heian / Pinan series. Gichin Funakoshi said that once the bunkai to this series is understood, the karateka can be “confident of their ability to defend themselves in most situations”. We will explore this truth and show how the kata series does indeed represent a holistic combative system. The seminar will run from 11am-3pm at University of Exeter Sports Park, Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QN (food outlets and facilities are available on campus).
