Over dit evenement

A seminar by Paul and Michelle Enfield is much more than just a training experience.

This seminar will leave you with new insights and ideas, no matter how long you’ve been training and whichever style you practice!

In their mission statement, Paul & Michelle say: “To inspire learning with integrity through education and research; to embrace tradition but not be limited by it”.

Paul and Michelle aim specifically for people who ask questions, who are looking for functional karate, who want to approach kata logically and who appreciate Karate tradition, but won't let themselves be bound by it.

Does this sound interesting? They are coming to The Netherlands for the first time ever and you can attend!! Their seminar will be an insightful exploration of technique and application. Founded in Okinawan Karate and applicable for karateka of every style! In this seminar they will take you through theme’s like: close combat, connecting drills, devastating low kicks, pad work and much more. In the tradition of karate but without being limited by it.

ABOUT THE TEACHERS

Sensei Paul(8th dan)started his karate career in Oxford, England in 1979. In 1984 he got his black belt. Shortly after that, he travelled to Okinawa to study karate fulltime. For a total of 3 years he stayed in Okinawa and Japan as uchi-deshi. Whilst in Asia he also travelled to Korea, Taiwan and China to further explore the Martial Arts. At the end of 1987 he left for America where he has been teaching since. Paul is fluent in Japanese and translated 3 Martial Arts books from Japanese to English. Paul himself has written numerous articles and published many DVD’s. Goju Ryu being the main focus of Paul, he has also studied Tai Chi Chuan, Lau Gar Gung Fu and Brazilian Jiujitsu.

Sensei Michelle (5th dan) started her career in Martial Arts in Krav Maga before continuing in Goju Ryu Karate. She got her black belt in 2004. She too trained on Okinawa as well as all over the world. Her catching energy and attitude are inspiring and make her seminars a very fun experience.

A REFERENCE

I attended a brilliant seminar by Senseis Paul and Michelle Enfield last night. It was 3 hours of practical self-defence Goju-ryu Karate exercises. One of the aspects of the martial arts that I absolutely love is that you can study a subject for as long as I have, and still find fresh perspectives on it. Seminars like this are energizing.In this seminar, yes we learned some cool techniques. Both Sensei Paul and Sensei Michelle are great presenters and excellent martial artists. More than anything else though, what I enjoyed about this seminar is that it resonated with one of my core beliefs. Everything, whether it is Goju-ryu karate, playing guitar, or studying physics, everything is principle based. If you truly want to learn something, you need to study the principles. It's been said 'the essence of karate is kata'. While I enjoy training kata, I love learning the essence, the principles behind the techniques. The Enfields not only espouse this philosophy, they discussed it in the Q&A that followed the seminar.
