Does anyone remember the huge Karateka Snow Ball Fight in Poulton Le Fylde during late January on leaving the Mews Thai Restaurant?!!
And that brings us nicely up to date where advanced training on Sundays has been looking at Kata and the correct understanding of application in real environments, such as on the street.
The club have taken this to the limit in recent months, where Kata has been practiced thoroughly, application in correct form (Kihon) has been pushed and then taken one stage further to street use.
The below are just typical examples of how Kata application can be used to deal with the regular Street "Haymaker" from Heian Kata's such as Shodan, Nidan and Sandan in relaxed stances.
