Session 1  A break-down and analysis of the techniques found within Tekki Shodan/Naihanchi Kata and how the same can be applied in the chaos of physical self-protection.  Session 2 An introduction to Heian Sandan bunkai dealing with grabs, pushes, haymakers, tackles and headlocks and using strikes, arm and shoulder controls, knees, throws and kicks - all while looking at underpinning principles of good karate and good kata application. Session 3 A Presentation explaining your legal right to defend yourself under the Self-Defence Law of England & Wales. Followed by Q&A. Session 4 Looking at the flow in the Pinan Flow System. Moving from static drills into fluid dynamic and alive training by taking the Session 2 drills (and maybe more) to the next level in order to test the ability to apply under greater pressure and to train greater adaptability.
