Seminar in Chesterfield!

On Sunday the 11th of November 2018 I will be returning to Unit 1 in Chesterfield! This time we are going to look at karate trapping skills! Trapping is the control of the enemy’s limbs, such that they are open to your strikes while unable to deliver their own. These methods are widespread throughout the kata but are frequently overlooked and misunderstood.

Seminar in Blairgowrie, Scotland

On Sunday 18th of November 2018 I will be teaching a seminar in Blairgowrie, Scotland! At this seminar we will cover the core concepts of practical karate that apply to all karateka; irrespective of style. To look at these concepts we will compare and contrast the five Pinan/Heian kata (created by Anko Itosu to be a summary of the Shuri-te line) with the two Gekisai kata (created by Chojun Miyagi to be a to be a summary of the Naha-te line). This will be a great opportunity to learn something new and to increase your understanding of the already familiar.
