Every Saturday between 1pm and 2.30pm Shihan Cyril Cummins 8th dan runs a special class dedicated to the in depth teaching and study of kata at his Bartley Green Dojo. The class usually covers all aspects of the given kata including the kata itself, bunkai, history and the opportunity to ask questions and clarify your understanding on the kata and it’s application. This session is open to karateka of all ages, grades and associations and is an invaluable opportunity to study kata with one of the stalwarts of Shotokan karate in the UK. Since Shihan Cummins initially started this class it has covered all twenty seven of the kata within the shotokan system and regularly attracts black belts of all grades with recent sessions exploring kata such as Tekki Sandan (both versions), Tekki Nidan, Jion, Jiin, Sochin, Meikyo and Gankaku as well as Heian kata.
Shihan Cummins does not charge a premium for this session with it being the standard class training fee of £7 for adults. If you would like to train on this class then please come along to the BHSKC Bartley Green Dojo located at Bartley Green Community Leisure Centre, 103 Adams Hill, Bartley Green, Birmingham, B32 3QJ.
