Iain Abernethy – The Forgotten Throws of Karate

Updated: Jun 9, 2022

Sunday, July 24, 2022 - 11:00 to 15:00

Iain Abernethy will be teaching an open seminar for us in Wokingham.

The theme of this seminar will be ‘The Forgotten Throws of Karate’ and ‘The Forgotten Forgotten Throws of Karate’!

In recent years, many karateka have readopted the nine throws shown by Gichin Funakoshi in his book Karate-Do: Kyohan. These throws are often referred to as “The Forgotten Throws of Karate”.

However, there are MANY more karate throws found in other books by Funakoshi, the Bubishi, the writings of Mabuni, Itoman, etc. This is to say nothing of the plethora of throws found within the karate kata.

Sensei Abernethy will cover all of the nine throws in Kyohan and many more karate throws. This will include the related gripping skills and throwing principles. Because getting thrown for four hours would not be fun(!), we will work many of the throws to the point of unbalancing in order to keep everyone smiling and learning.” The seminar will run from 11am to 3pm and will take place at Luckley House School, Luckley Road, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 3EU. The cost of the seminar is £35 per person.
