This download records Iain’s teaching at the Summersdale Master’s Seminar. This landmark seminar saw some of the UK’s leading martial artists – from a variety of differing arts and styles – teach together for the very first time.
On this download you’ll get to see Iain Abernethy 5th dan Karate (BCA & EKGB) teach a detailed session on covering and clinching.
These vitally important close-range skills are a must for all martial artists, regardless of style or system.
Aside from the simplicity of the techniques themselves, what is remarkable is that Iain clearly shows how the techniques taught are found within Naihanchi / Tekki kata! This aspect of Iain’s teaching enthralled both karateka and non-karateka alike. No other download on the market shows how Naihanchi / Tekki records all aspects of fighting from a clinch. Indeed, this aspect of the kata has never even been previously presented in Iain’s own works!
The techniques shown include covering, clinching, taking away the opponent’s weapons, escaping from the clinch, striking from a clinch, countering an opponent’s grip and more! All aspects of clinch fighting are covered and this download is a must watch for any martial artist wishing to enhance their understanding close-range combat.
