Hello All, I need some help please! about a year back I trained at steve powells JKD in Manchester! Unfortunately I had to give it up due to starting a new job :cry: I'm not giving up in returning to training tho! this weekend I'm starting BJJ at straight blast! and once I have completed the fundamentals I can do the morning classes before work. however I'm also looking to take up Karate. I'm a big fan of Ian Abernethy and watching his videos of applied bunkai to Katas are fantastic! however ive messaged quite a few karate clubs who shall remain nameless who tell me karate is strictly punching & kicking only and self defence is a different entity altogether! OR the Bunkai to the katas they perform is truly heart breaking I have however found 2 clubs I'm interested in club no.1) http://www.shukokai-uk.com/news.html club no.2) http://www.dentonshotokan.co.uk/ if anybody could shine some light on these clubs that would be fantastic. or any recommendations please let me know. I'm only available to train Friday/Saturday all day and early morning weekdays thank you all so much for reading this and for any future response!
