The Heian Kata Bunkai Phenomenon Seminar

The Heian Kata Bunkai Phenomenon Seminar with Christian Wedewardt & Les Bubka
Christian Wedewardt will be visiting the United Kingdom, and we thought it would be great to pick his brain on the subject of Heian Bunkai Phenomenon. I'm sure that most of you have read his excellent book, but if not please find it at the link below. It is definitely worth reading.

The Heian Kata Bunkai Phenomenon:

This seminar will expand on the methodology and practices of this kata series. Christian will take us deeper into the thinking process of deciphering and analysing the Heian/Pinan kata. I will give my perspective on our version of this kata series and we will discuss and try different approaches.

Both Christian and I are of the opinion that evolving the seminar on the day is the best approach and so we would welcome your questions, opinions and suggestions during the seminar, allowing us to decide where the day will take us. We have decided to take a belt and braces approach to cater for any eventuality in relation to COVID restrictions, and so we will run this as a hybrid event.

The seminar will be held on Saturday the 2nd of October 2021 in Guildford, UK.
Doors open at 9:00am. We will start promptly at 9:30am and will continue until 5:00pm with a short break for lunch and regular breaks throughout the day.

Hot drinks (tea and coffee) and biscuits will be available at the start of the session, but please bring your own lunch. If you would like to purchase some food there is a Tesco Express next door to our dojo.

Venue Address:
QE Park Baptist Church (first floor)
