Seminar in Chesterfield!

NOW SOLD OUT: On Sunday the 24th of September 2017 I will be returning to Unit 1 in Chesterfield! The theme will be the practical self-defence methods found in Naihanchi (Tekki) Shodan, Nidan and Sandan! The first one is the original kata, while the Nidan and Sandan versions were created later by Anko Itosu (who also made the Pinan / Heian kata). We will be sharing the highly functional, close-range methods of these fascinating kata. No prior knowledge of the kata is needed and all styles are welcome.

Seminar in Swindon

On Sunday the 22nd of October 2017 Iain and Andi Kidd will be teaching a joint seminar! They will be covering the "brutality of the basics"! In many dojo, the first kata taught will either be Pinan Shodan (Heian Nidan) or Gekisai Dai Ichi. As a result, these kata are often considered to be "basic" and less effective that their more "advanced" counterparts. Not so! At this event, Andi will show how Pinan Shodan (Heian Nidan) - "Safe from harm fundamentals" - can be applied in a free-flowing way in order to recover initiative and strike the enemy no matter how they try to protect themselves.
