Update Christian Wedewardt Seminar

Hello all,

Due to the CORONA virus I saw a lot of seminars being cancelled.

I believe seminars are a good way to improve your karate and september is traditionally the start of the martial arts season, I will be reducing the entrance fee for the weekend. At the moment I won’t accept one-day bookings.

I really hope to see you again this year. I spoke to Christian about it and he is very keen on giving his first seminar in Belgium. I hope you can join me in September.

The fee is now 50€ for 13 hours of practical karate.

Christian Wedewardt is coming …

Christian Wedewardt is coming to Belgium for the first time. He is the owner of and gives a holisitic approach to the 3K’s ( Kihon, Kata, Kumite) similar to what Iain Abernethy teaches.

Christian is the author of the Book “The Heian-Kata-Bunkai-Phenomenon” which deals with the content of this 5-part Kata-Series as a learning-koncept for Self-defense. 

While teaching Kata-Bunkai and related drills the focus on Self-Defense is never far away. Christian has developed a whole curriculum that focusses solely on Karate-based Self-Defense formulated in given Katas. It is a unique method in learning awareness and how to protect yourself and others which has the benefit of easily remembering the learning-stuff because of the relation to the katas. 

This seminar will be a new type of seminar as there will be a pad drill session.

The kata Niseishi/Nijushiho will be studied in depth during the saturday sessions. Besides the Kata-Bunkai there will be an extraction of Principles , Alternatives and Tactics (PAT) to work on. Finally there will be a partner- and paddrill session.

For Sunday we will have a Heian-Kata-System-Bunkai session which would allow you to have a brief insight on new methods to show to your students. 

On Friday September 12th there will be a training for the people purchasing a weekend ticket
– 17:00 till 19:00 : Pad drill to get you started for an action packed weekend 

Saturday September 13th will have 4 sessions on Niseishi/Nijushiho

Iain Abernethy is coming to Bruges !!!


The seminar I am organising is almost fully booked. Only 3 more spaces left on Sunday September 9th.

I am pleased of having about 40 martial artists for each session. Initially there were 50 spots available but for the comfort of everyone I decided to close the bookings early.

I am also planning a tour of Bruges on Saturday for anyone that is interested.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone and sharing ideas on martial arts and self defense.

If you are coming, don’t forget to bring your federation booklet for Iain to sign.

Wim Demeere – The Fighter’s Guide To Hard-Core Heavy Bag Training – now available in Amazon

The Fighter’s Guide To Hard-Core Heavy Bag Training

In one session on the heavy bag, you can develop all the attributes you need as a martial artist or fighter: power, form, speed, timing, endurance, and explosiveness. What other training tool can make that claim?

Throughout The Fighter’s Guide to Hard-Core Heavy Bag Training, Wim Demeere and Loren Christensen show you how to master the critical skills needed to survive a fight. From these acclaimed martial artists, you will get solid information on how to:

  • Choose the right heavy bag for your needs.
  • How best to hang it.
  • How to care for it so it lasts for years.
  • And more.

But that’s not all! You will also learn:

  • The five types of impact.
  • How to make the best use of them for specific situations.
  • Innovative drills to maximize your fitness level and fighting ability.
  • Creative ways to grapple a heavy bag, including chokes, takedowns, and armbars.
  • How to avoid the most common mistakes in heavy bag training. T

This information works perfectly for combat athletes who train for Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai or Kickboxing. It can be applied just as much to traditional martial arts such as Karate, Kung Fu, Taekwondo or even Pentjak Silat and Arnis or Kali.
