Seminar in Sidcup, Kent!

On Sunday 22nd January 2023 I will be teaching an open seminar in Sidcup, Kent! At this seminar we will look at the applications of Kanku-Dai / Kushanku / Kosokun-Dai. The kata was created in the 1700s by Tode Sakugawa to record the methods of a Chinese official called Kushanku. A ship’s captain wrote that he had seen a martial arts demonstration by Kushanku and noted that, although not a strong or large man, he defeated opponents with ease. We are also told Kushanku was good at grappling and would frequently control opponents with one hand while striking them with the other.
