My buddy Rey will host this event. Meadowbrook Community Center will be teaching basic stances, blocks, punches, kicks, according to Goju-Ryu principles. The program will explore "kata" (pattern of movements) used in Karate to help train the mind and body to respond synergestically to an attack for self-defense. As a bonus, we will complement our training with Arnis/Kali training, a Filipino martial arts used in close combat. This will be useful in our training because it will develop our spatial awareness over all defense. We will not be doing Arnis every session, (hopefully twice a month) so that we will not be overwhelmed. This is a FREE introductory class. If you like it you can sign up for the quarter for a small fee as it is taught in the Community Center in North Seattle. Dress comfortably ( sweat pants, T-shirt, etc.) Come on down and learn self defense.
