On Saturday the 9th of December Iain Abernethy will be teaching an open seminar in Durham! The seminar will run from midday to 4pm and will take place in Freemans Quay Leisure Centre, Freeman's Pl, Durham DH1 1SW. The cost is £30 / person. For more information and to book your place, please contact Dave Smith via ca6dsm@yahoo.co.uk or 07740 194575 (email preferred).

The theme of the seminar is the applications of Nijushiho / Neiseishi (24 steps). No prior knowledge of the kata is needed. This kata comes to us via Seisho Arakaki (1840 – 1918) and very similar versions of the kata are found in Shotokan, Shito-Ryu, Wado-Ryu, etc. Seisho Arakaki taught Kanryo Higaonna, who in turn was the principle teacher of Chojun Miyagi (founder of Goju-Ryu). Nijushiho / Neiseishi is the one of the few kata taught by Seisho Arakaki that did not become part of Goju-Ryu. Therefore, this kata will also be of interest of Goju practitioners too. The kata is interesting practically and historically and contains lots of effective close-range methods inducing strikes, join-locks, throws, takedowns, etc.

Client Feedback
We have been part of British Combat Association for over 5 years now and we are always made to feel like part of this Martial Arts family. The guidance and training from Peter Consterdine has been the best experience we have had in our Martial Arts history. We have learnt more from Peter and the BCA in the last 5 years than any other association we have been with in our 20 plus years training and instructing. The administration and information from the BCA's Dawn is second to none and always helpful if we need help or guidance on our memberships and grade certificates. We will always support the BCA.
