Sensei Savanna and Sensei Kevin attended a seminar in Winnipeg by world renowned “practical” karate expert, Sensei Iain Abernethy.
Sensei Iain is an expert in “real world” application of karate techniques as shown to us in our various katas.
The workshop was incredible! Sensei Iain is wealth of martial knowledge. He has intimate knowledge of kata and many ways that we can take the somewhat stylized techniques and use them for defence and protection. He also has great knowledge of the history of karate and the martial arts. He shares both freely and with great zest and interest.
