Sensei Figgiani Seminar September 9-10, 2016

On September 9-10, 2016, the Shorinryu Karate Academy at the Grove City, PA, YMCA, will host a karate training seminar taught by Sensei Jerry Figgiani, 8th Dan in Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu, and founder and president of Shorin Ryu Karatedo International. This two-day seminar will focus on developing practical partner drills, analyzing kata (forms) for self-defense applications, and discovering locks, chokes, and throws within kata (forms).

This seminar is open to all martial artists, regardless of style, and is suited for intermediate and advanced students. Some knowledge of the Pinan/Heian/Pyung Ahn kata (forms) and the Naihanchi/Tekki/Chul-Gi kata (forms) would be beneficial but is not necessary.
