Seminar in Chesterfield!

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.
