Seminar in Northampton!

On the 16th December 2018 I will be teaching an open seminar in Northampton! The theme will be “The universal karate principles of Passai / Bassai-Dai.” We will be looking at the bunkai of this important kata and beyond to the core combative principles that can be found in all kata and all styles of karate. Prior knowledge of the kata is therefore not necessary as the principles are universal. This course will be extremely useful for all those wanting to understand the true nature of kata and its relevance to real-world self-protection.
