Is there anyone in South Africa, preferably Cape Town, keen on getting together for a training session?
Are you with JKA South Africa?
I'm in Canada but may be interested to study in Cape Town. Are there many dojos?
Yip JKA, I train with Jon Williams here and there are two major Cape Town dojos, with a number of others in the outlying areas. So if you do come through give me a shout!
Have a good one
Thanks for the info.
Another question: are there any pragmatically oriented dojos in Cape Town? Looking into close-in kata bunkai?
Hence my original question . Our dojo cross trains with other grappling, judo, ground guys etc quite a bit, but isn't what I would call pragmatically orientated. Most dojo's here say that they offer practical karate but I would say most are competition driven.
Not to say guys aren't open to close-in bunkai, it is just a bit of a pradigm shift, so hopefully I will be able to find a couple like minded people. Will let you know!
Have a good one!
Have you contacted Kaicho Narker
His Honbu is in Retreat
Thanks, I trained a few times back in the early 90's with Hoosain Narker, quite dynamic and has done quite a bit for karate in South Africa.
I have pm'd you so if you have a look at that, thanks!
