Great news for all karateka’s that like the practical side of things. Iain Abernethy will be joining the Christian Wedewardt seminar on 11-12-13 september.
As it will probably be one of the only practical seminars in Belgium don’t hesitate to book your seats now!
We suggest that you book the seminar with a designated partner as we won’t be switching partners in between sessions. This is of course a preventive measure to limit the people you come in contact with.
If you have flu like symptoms, we suggest you stay at home.
A couple of measures we will be taking at the seminar:
- temperature measured at the start of a session (above 37.5 Celsius).
- a mask should be worn if you are training with someone that is not your designated partner
- changing rooms require a mask to be worn as the distance of 1.5 meters can’t be guaranteed
The fee is 50€ for 13 hours of practical karate. Only 40 participants will be allowed. Book here
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 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.
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.
