Seminar in Bradford

On Sunday the 16th of February 2020, I will be teaching an open seminar in Bradford! At this event we will be exploring the applications and origins of the “13-hands” family of kata. Most styles have a version of this kata: Seishan (Wado), Seisan (Shito-Ryu & Goju-Ryu), Hangetsu (Shotokan), etc. While these kata are believed to have a common origin, and they have much in common, they nevertheless have some distinct differences. This seminar will compare and contrast these versions in order to give the participant insights into the fighting system that inspired these kata.
