Iain Abernethy: Motobu kata and drills seminar

Iain Abernethy: Motobu kata and drills

SATURDAY, 29 APRIL 2023 FROM 12:00-16:00

This seminar will cover the 12 two-person drills of Choki Motobu (1870–1944). Motobu, unlike many of his contemporaries, was of the firm view that karate should remain a functional self-protection system and not aspire to become a modern budo, with an emphasis on exercise and personal development.

His drills are all close-range, direct, take control, limit the enemy’s options and take into account the enemy’s likely actions.

Motobu never founded a style, and these drills can be utilised by karateka of all backgrounds. You will also see a lot of commonality with the methods found in the traditional kata. Iain will also cover Seinipo / Juniho, which is the kata he made to record the methods of Motobu.

Participants will leave the seminar with a working knowledge of Motobu’s drills, his methodology, and have a kata to aid memory and for solo practise.

The seminar will run from midday to 4pm and is co-hosted by Grove Martial Arts and Athena School of Karate.

To book please email mary@athenakarate.com.

Tickets will be £40 to non-members (or £35 to Grove Martial Arts/Athena Karate students).

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.
