Seminar in Wokingham

On Sunday the 7th of March 2021 I will be teaching an open session in Wokingham! The theme of the seminar is Nijushiho / Neiseishi (24 steps). This kata comes to us via Seisho Arakaki (1840 – 1918) and very similar versions of the kata are found in Shotokan, Shito-Ryu, Wado-Ryu, etc. Seisho Arakaki taught Kanryo Higaonna, who in turn was the principle teacher of Chojun Miyagi (founder of Goju-Ryu). Nijushiho / Neiseishi is the one of the few kata taught by Seisho Arakaki that did not become part of Goju-Ryu. Therefore, this kata will also be of interest of Goju practitioners too.

Seminar in Maldon, Essex

On Sunday the 1st of August 2021 I will be teaching a kata bunkai / practical karate seminar in Maldon, Essex! At this seminar, I will be covering practical bunkai and drills for Kanku-Dai / Kushanku. We will cover how all these methods can be applied in modern-day self-defence and the associated training drills. The kata is a record of the combative techniques and concepts formulated by a Chinese martial artist who went by the name of Kushanku. Kushanku can also be pronounced “Kosokun”, and the kata was renamed as “Kanku-Dai” in Shotokan karate.
