Seminar in Wokingham

On Sunday the 18th of October 2020 I will be teaching an open session in Wokingham! The theme of the seminar is Nijushiho / Neiseishi (24 steps). This kata comes to us via Seisho Arakaki (1840 – 1918) and very similar versions of the kata are found in Shotokan, Shito-Ryu, Wado-Ryu, etc. Seisho Arakaki taught Kanryo Higaonna, who in turn was the principle teacher of Chojun Miyagi (founder of Goju-Ryu). Nijushiho / Neiseishi is the one of the few kata taught by Seisho Arakaki that did not become part of Goju-Ryu. Therefore, this kata will also be of interest of Goju practitioners too.
