On Saturday the 23rd of March 2019, I will be teaching an open seminar in Keighley, Yorkshire! Places will be limited to 36 people, so please do book soon to avoid disappointment.

The theme of this seminar will be the drills and fighting methods of Choki Motobu (1870 – 1944). These methods will showcase practical “old school” karate (karate that was never influenced by the “do” ethos) and will be of great interest to practitioners of all styles. The methods include arching strikes, trapping, utilising predictable actions, locking, redirecting force, underused kicks, etc. Links with Tekki / Naihanchi (Motobu’s favourite kata) are also very apparent.

Otsuka (founder of Wado-Ryu) was a student of Motobu and his influence can be seen in some elements of the Kihon Gumite of Wado. This seminar will therefore be of extra interest to Wado stylists.

The venue will be Soaring Eagle Karate dojo, in the Clock Tower at the historic Dalton Mills on Dalton Lane. The address is: Soaring Eagle Karate, Unit 25 Dalton Mills, Dalton Lane, Keighley, West Yorkshire, BD21 4JH

The price for this seminar will be £35.  Payment can be made either through using the PayPal (contact host for details), by cheque made payable to "Soaring Eagle Karate" and sent to Soaring Eagle Karate, 15 Marley View, Bingley, BD16 2ED, or by BACS on request.
