Enjoy

Don't obsess over the attack!

Don’t obsess over the attack!

A cautionary tale for those progressing Karate

The archetypical “traditional” karate class, where students become skilled at air-punching, tag and defending against straight punches that begin further away from the moon, does little to prepare its participants with solutions to deal with non-consensual violence.

Joint Lock Practicality

Hello, everyone!

I just published my latest article, which specifically looks at joint lock practicality. In it, I cover a bit of history and context, the three types of locks (as I see them), the four methods of applying locks (again, as I see them), and how to transition from compliant drills to practical, applicable skills.

Hikite - Just a hand on the hip?

Hikite - Just a hand on the hip?

Hikite is the Japanese term for “pulling hand”. Hiki meaning pull and te meaning hand. Due to the way in which Karate has evolved, the meaning and use of hikite have changed over time and the practical application to hikite has, all things considered, fallen by the wayside.

My journey from 3K Karate to Practical Karate by Graham Palmer

My journey from 3K Karate to Practical Karate by Graham Palmer

The first glimpse of the unknown, ask you to look deeper. However, many close the door to stay with what they know!

For some time now I have wanted to share my experience of moving away from a 3K approach to a Practical approach with Self Defence in mind. I hope the following article will provide those also interested in following a Practical approach the relevant information or guidance to achieve this.
