Seminar in Kidlington!

On Sunday the 31st of January 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!

Seminar in Wokingham

On Sunday the 7th of March 2021 I will be teaching an open session in Wokingham! The theme of the seminar is Nijushiho / Neiseishi (24 steps). This kata comes to us via Seisho Arakaki (1840 – 1918) and very similar versions of the kata are found in Shotokan, Shito-Ryu, Wado-Ryu, etc. Seisho Arakaki taught Kanryo Higaonna, who in turn was the principle teacher of Chojun Miyagi (founder of Goju-Ryu). Nijushiho / Neiseishi is the one of the few kata taught by Seisho Arakaki that did not become part of Goju-Ryu. Therefore, this kata will also be of interest of Goju practitioners too.
