This is one of the possible uses of the Tai Sabaki

Moving Club to Guildford

After few good years at the St Mark’s Hall it is time to move to new lactation. Considering all the options I decide that new location have to be closer to home, this decision was dictated by new member of the family arriving in March. New cub will be at the Queen Elizabeth Park on the ground floor of the QE Park Centre. This hall is nearly new with excellent wooden floor and bright light, having a good feel to it. 26952156_1990748001163412_3991770896776039895_o

First class will be held on the 8th of January 2019 at 8pm, everyone is welcome, our club is oriented to include everyone no matter their ability, we are involved in supporting people with mental health problems, autism and other physical disabilities. Our sessions can be modified and adjusted to the individual needs.

Looking forward to starting this new stage in our club, see you at the dojo.

Three Components of Martial Arts

Video by Stephan Kesting where he makes some great points about essential components of every martial art:

– Techniques

– Equipment

– Training Methods

These three components combined together make the art or a sport effective. We can have perfect technique but without appropriate equipment and training methodologies, we miss the full potential of the fighting system. I highly recommend this clip.
