Man or System.

In various interviews I’ve talked about falling standards in martial arts which I feel is possibly as a consequence of the huge variety of competitions available these days and to which people are attracted and which, to a great degree, allow them to avoid the painful and often boring repetition of doing basics over and over.

My views on modern day Shot.

Have been asked to give my views on modern day shotokan karate. It’s my view that 75% of clubs are a sham. These days there are so many different types of fight clubs, such as MMA, sport karate etc that people want a quick fix and this has had an effect on traditional shotokan.

Changing Times – What Price.

Following my resignation from the KUGB after 21 years of top class Shotokan training, I was persuaded to start my own organization, despite trying to run Legend Productions. The reasoning behind this decision was put to me by the late Danny Connor, one of the first karate-ka to go to Japan to train in the 1960’s - Danny pointed out that as I was still finding time to train, why not also continue teaching. So eventually the BSF (British Shotokan Federation) was formed and ran successfully from 1993 until 2004 when I closed it down.

Contact With The Enemy.

Wellington said, “No plan survives contact with the enemy”. He knew, through bitter experience that in battle all the careful, detailed and intricate tactics seldom came to pass when the enemy was engaged. We refer to the ‘chaos’ of war and “the fog of war” - Carl Von Clausewitz (from his treatise ‘On War’).

Shotokan Faces.

I intend to do a few articles on some of the Shotokan men and women who were such an integral part of the history and development of Shotokan in the UK.

The health values of karate.

As I approach my 49th year of training, it occurs to me that perhaps I’ve been lucky in more ways than one, in connection with the martial arts.
