This is an invite for a full weekend of training with Patrick McCarthy on the 6th and 7th of June 2015 at Musashi Karate in Ayr, Southwest Scotland.
This is an essential course if you are serious about training with one of the most important figures alive today in Karate circles. Kata application and two person drills will be the main focus of the weekend. This will be a white Gi event not for beginners and adults only.
The plan is to spend two full days training with Hanshi and to have dinner with him on the Saturday night where the more informal study can take place in a relaxed atmosphere over a meal and a few drinks.
The venue will be Alloway Primary School, KA7 4QQ
Cost £100 for the two day course. (Meals not included)
The course will be limited so that we have a more focused group.
Places will be on a first come first served basis.
A non-refundable deposit of £25 will secure place.
