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.

Almost three years ago now I first got in touch with Peter Consterdine as I felt that it was time for me to depart from the group that I then had not only my membership with, but also some 50 members. I recall clearly feeling nervous as I briefly waited for the phone to be answered, and the voice on the other end was Peter himself! It was a pleasure and relief to deal with such an encouraging and supportive organisation, which is why I am very happy to be a member of the BCKA. I'm also very happy that my own group, which is substantially larger and stronger than back then are also supported by Peter and Dawn. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
