Seminar in Oxford!

On Saturday the 27th of November I will be teaching in Kidlington! The seminar is open to all and the theme will be the practical application of the Pinan / Heian series! Created by Anko Itosu in the late 1800s, the Pinan / Heian series are without a doubt the world’s most widely practised set of kata. Gichin Funakoshi wrote that “Once you master these five kata, you can be confident in your ability to protect yourself in most situations”. This kata series is therefore intended to be a holistic physical self-protection system … as Iain will show!
