Nine members of the London Dojo made the trip to the Hemel Honbu Dojo to train with Dave Hazard Sensei.

I’ve said it many times in class but in my opinion, Hazard Sensei is the best Shotokan instructor I have ever trained with.  Unlike most instructors he teaches a truly rounded version of Shotokan which focuses it’s kihon, kata & kumite towards real life self protection.


The class focused on the kata Jitte, it’s oyo bunkai implications both basic and more advanced and finished off the course with kei-waza (kicking techniques) working on distancing, angles and set ups.

It was a great turnout from the London dojo members, with our dojo having the strongest turnout of any club/association!
