As everyone is settling into their routines again after a busy few weeks at the start of term, we have big plans coming up, and would like to invite you to some seminars coming up!

The first one is this weekend (23rd and 24th of October) with coach Tony Torres:

We have invited Tony Torres over for another workshop, which we are very excited about! For those of you don’t know who he is and what he does, Tony Torres has had a long and very successful career as a martial artist and personal safety professional, developing and teaching what we now use as our core self defence syllabus, as well as having a great deal of skill and insight into other systems. If you want to read more about coach Torres, here’s some info from a Q&A session after his last seminar here in 2014:

The seminar takes place in Gym 4, St Leonard’s Land, same place as normal training, at 18.30-21.30 on the Friday and 10.00-12.00 on Saturday!

At this workshop, we will cover defence lab material on the Friday night, and on Saturday we will do more advanced stuff, introducing gracie jiu jitsu basics. Both days will cover fundamentals, so beginners are very welcome to both, and we can guarantee you learn loads!

To attend both days, we will charge £35, if you are only available for one day, there’s a one-day option for £20!

To sign up, talk to a committee member, who will point you in the right direction.

Next, we are once again inviting kaicho Allan Amor over to host a seminar, on the 14th and 15th of November!

This seminar gives a very good insight into traditional Okinawan karate, with an abundance of technical input, kata and application. There will also be a portion dedicated to kobudo (tradtional weapons) through the weekend. The final details of what day will be spent on what are yet to be confirmed, but the information will come soon!

In the meanwhile, look at what we did last time kaicho Amor visited in November 2014!
