Due to unforeseen restrictions in travel from and to the UK we have to cancel the seminar as Iain won’t be able to make it. His flight was cancelled. We also looked into flying him to Germany but it is highly likely that won’t work either.
We will look into refunding everyone ASAP.
Next year we will look into organising the seminar again with Iain and Christian as they are a true inspiration to all of us looking into the practical side of karate.
Stay safe !!!
Christian Wedewardt is coming to Belgium for the first time. He is the owner of karatepraxis.com 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.

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.
I would like this site to become the reference for all martial arts seminars in Belgium. The idea is to be the 1-stop-shop for all martial artists regardless of style or federation.
Don’t hesistate to contact me if you would like to post a seminar on the site. I can then work with you to set up the seminar so you can start spreading the news.
Enjoy your visit.
