Summer Karate Camp 30th May to 1st June, in support of “Christopher’s Smile” Children’s Cancer charity (http://www.christopherssmile.org.uk)

Venue, Maple Cross School, Herts, WD3 9SS (just off J17, M25).

This is the first of what will hopefully be an annual charity event and is an opportunity for Karate-ka to experience what is a true (to borrow a phrase) mixed martial art weekend.

By combining our weekend camp with the I.S.K.K. (International Seito Karate Kenkyukai) workshop we are able to offer the chance to try many things outside of the general run of day to day Karate training.



We will be running a variety of sessions in 12 hours of training over the 3 day period covering a number of topics including:

Seito Karate, principles and application

Early version Okinawan kata

Iai/Kenjutsu (use of the sword)

Brazilian JiuJitsu (Groundwork Gracie style)

Practical application of (Shotokan) Kihon

Wrist/Arm locks found in (Shotokan) kata and lock flow drills




Instructors currently confirmed are:

Malcolm Bates, 6th Dan Seito Karate

Jim Dart, 5th Dan Wado Ryu, JuJitsu and Judo

Dave Hart, 5th Dan Iaido

Brian Bates, 4th Dan BKI (Shotokan)

Bob Davis, 3rd Dan KASKA (Shotokan)

Ben Tippen, Certified Gracie JJ Instructor



All meals will be provided from Friday supper through to Sunday lunch.*

Camping space will be available in the school field, although those without the equipment may sleep on the mats in the dojo if they wish.

Course is open to all Karate-ka over the age of 18**. Numbers are however limited to ensure a good level of personal attention during training.

Cost of the full weekend will be £80, (a deposit of £20 will be required to secure your place). Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis).

We are trying to offer a good value, information rich and entertaining weekend for all karate-ka regardless of group or affiliation. Training will start with a 2 hour session on Friday evening for those who can make it, followed by a full day on the Saturday and then Sunday morning aiming to finish with a light lunch at 12:00 before end of camp.
(Please note, we have the possibility of extending the camp into an extra session after lunch should anyone attending wish to run a session for us on the topic of their choice, this can run anywhere from 30min up to 2 hours, please let me know if you’d like to do this).

*Note, all food offered over the weekend will be vegetarian friendly (although not vegan).

**18 or over is a requirement of the school so I cannot be flexible on this. Please make sure your personal insurance is current at the time of the event.

Additional to the last announcement I am very pleased to say that we will now be extending the camp to a full 14 hours (at no extra cost) as we will now also be offering a session by Paul Herbert (5th Dan) who has kindly donated his time in support of a very good cause.
