IRKRS Seminars

A link to the past is your bridge to the future: Koryu Uchinadi’s unique system of application practices is a pathway between kata and kumite. Learned correctly, it can enhance the depth and value of any dojo curriculum without adversely affecting its cosmetic appearance or taking anything away from its cultural heritage. KU can also be learned/imparted as a provocative alternative to conventional methods of physical fitness and stress management. Learning how to respond dispassionately to unwarranted aggression requires self-empowerment. Such training promotes an inner-calm and, where conflict exists, helps restore a natural balance to personal and professional relationships.

2015 SEMINAR ITINERARY

KU is a pathway bridging the gap between kata and kumite, which serves to strengthen the delivery system of any traditional Japanese/Okinawan Karate style without adversely affecting its cosmetic appearance or taking anything away from its cultural heritage.

Deep roots strengthen the foundation of this art and yet wings provide the means to continue forth on the journey of discovery.
