"The Secrets of Karate" Seminar with
Hanshi Patrick McCarthy
Patrick McCarthy is one of the few foreigners to actually teach karate-do in Japan. Moreover, he is recognized worldwide as one of the foremost authorities on the civil fighting traditions (Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo Jutsu) of Okinawa. He is the first non-oriental to ever be awarded a 7th Dan and the coveted Kyoshi Menkyo (Teacher's License) from the Dai Nippon Butokukai Kyoto Honbu. He has been practicing karate-do for over thirty years and is a world-famous karate historian and author. Mr. McCarthy is a frequent contributor to martial arts magazines through-out the world, author of 'The Classical Kata of Okinawan Karate' and 'The Bible of Karate: BUBISHI'.
This seminar will teach the rare, beautiful and greatly coveted "Secret White Crane Kata" Hakutsuru, along with its even more secret self-defence applications. Not covered in previous seminars, Hanshi McCarthy will focus on the Tiger and Monk Fist portions of the kata. The participants will also learn the theory and practice of the most effective concepts in the martial arts including pressure points, joint locks, strangulations, takedowns, throws, grappling, and groundwork.
