2017 EU Koryu Uchinadi Gasshuku

Just received confirmation from Shihan Bert Mollen that next year's EU Gasshuku [The 10th Annual] will be from Wednesday 24 May to Sunday 28 May 2017 at the Veldhoven Koryukan in The Netherlands.

Time to start making plans :-)

A link to the past is your bridge to the future: Koryu Uchinadi’s unique system of application practices is a pathway between kata and kumite. Learned correctly, it can enhance the depth and value of any dojo curriculum without adversely affecting its cosmetic appearance or taking anything away from its cultural heritage. KU can also be learned/imparted as a provocative alternative to conventional methods of physical fitness and stress management. Learning how to respond dispassionately to unwarranted aggression requires self-empowerment. Such training promotes an inner-calm and, where conflict exists, helps restore a natural balance to personal and professional relationships.

Deep roots strengthen the foundation of this art and yet wings provide the means to continue forth on the journey of discovery. Practicing Karate links us inconspicuously to its past; through discipline and sacrifice we discover our inner-self; by training together we forge important bonds of friendship and by living the art we honor its heritage…

Noted author, historian and authority of Okinawan Karate, Patrick McCarthy, has done it yet again, by sharing more valuable learning. These presentations are thorough and complex, yet highly functional and easy to learn. They are most certainly sure to enhance your overall understanding and personal training practices. You will be amazed at the provocative and insightful information he’s openly shared. Delivered in the unique fashion that he is so well known for, both the knowledge and signature practices are second to none. One of the most knowledgeable and sought after instructors of our time, McCarthy Sensei will have you not only re-thinking the art but also enhancing the way you practice it.

Now available at only $167.97 USD for All 3-Vols [9 DVD’s] which is a huge 20% discount over purchasing the seperate Vol’s individually at $69.99 USD

Contents

Vol#1. Tsuki-Naka Kata: This is a fantastic new release on White Crane Kata & Bunkai-jutsu. McCarthy Sensei meticulously teaches Tsuki-naka Kata [突き中の型], a Fujian-based White Crane kata from Yongchun Village, China, before carefully revealing the application practices for all of its techniques.

Disc 1 [running time 78 min] = Introduction to & extensive commentary on the kata, its associated practices and the performance from various angles for the best visual learning.

Disc 2 [running time 55 min] = Extensive commentary and a close-up and hands-on look at the application practices for the kata.

Disc 3 [running time 38 min] = A continuation of the commentary and hands-on look at the application and related practices of this kata along with its common association with other traditions.

Vol #2. Kihon-waza Futari-geiko [Fundamental 2-person training drills]. McCarthy Sensei thoroughly examines and meticulously teaches the old-school Kote-kitai/Ude-tanren, Muchimi-di and Tegumi practices.

Disc 1 [running time 44 min] = Introduction to and a very extensive commentary on the use of the classical techniques of reception: Jodan, Chudan [Uchi & Soto], Kake and Shuto-uke, are presented in a signature-based hands-on 2-person drill. Presented at learning speed and from various angles for the best visual learning, this fusion of old-school practices is sure to provide you with yet another wonderfully new insight to using traditional, “blocking techniques.”

Disc 2 [running time 55 min] = Here on disc #2 McCarthy Sensei presents yet another unique look at old-school 2-person conditioning and sensitivity exercises surrounding a fusion of Kote-kitai/Ude-tanren and Muchimi-di Tegumi-style practices. His extensive commentary and close-up hands-on instruction from various angles really provide new insights to old-school practices. The instruction in disc #2 concludes with the presentation of yet one more 2-person exercise, which will reveal a completely different and totally unique way of embracing karate’s traditional, “blocking techniques.”

Disc 3 [running time 28 min] = McCarthy Sensei presents another of his many signature 2-person conditioning exercises, called Kaishu-waza futari-geiko [techniques with an empty and open hand]. Presented at learning speed and from various angles for the best visual learning, this old-school drill is one of our most popular and sought after practices.

Vol #3. Kata Analyses Bunkai-jutsu [型分解術] McCarthy Sensei thoroughly examines and meticulously teaches a smattering of old-school Kata application practices.

Disc 1 = [running time 61 min] Discussion on the conceptual meaning[s] along with the fundamental practices, mechanics and application principles of the nukite [spear hand], Kobushi [the clenched fist], Shuri-te salutation [various uses of the sun & moon hand posture], Meotote [using the hands in close proximity to each other] and the ippon-ashi dachi [the use of the one leg posture in a clinch], etc.

Disc 2 = [running time 41 min] The continuation of application practices here feature the ippon-nukite [one-finger spear hand], neko-ashi dachi [cat’s-paw posture], ashi-barai [foot sweep], Naihanchi-waza [techniques from Naihanchi kata], Nage/Shime-waza [throw & strangle technique] of Pinan Godan and one of Yara Kushanku’s principal engagement templates, etc.

Disc 3 = [running time 56 min] This final DVD features a wonderfully dynamic 2-person muchimidi-based sensitivity exercise called, “Rokkishu” [六気手]. Described in Okinawa’s secret book of knowledge, “The Bubishi [武備志],” Rokkishu focuses upon the special use of six open-hand positions. The solo-representation of Rokkishu futari renzoku-geiko [the 2-person flow drill of Rokkishu] mirrors that of Tenshou kata [轉掌型], believed to have been developed by Miyagi Chojun, the pioneer of Goju-ryu [剛柔流]. Disc #3 concludes with various related application practices making for a highly informative presentation.

Important message for instructors
While the instruction presented here is, without question, valuable to any/all leaners, it should particularly resonate with instructors of traditional Karate seeking to better understand the foundation practices of the old art before its modern counterpart interpretation emerged. McCarthy’s lifetime of experience really shines through in this series making the presentation of these lessons feel like an in dojo one-on-one personal training session with the master.

Purchasing
The new series can be purchased by Paypal or credit card through patrick_mccarthy@mac.com

Dear friends,

I’ve just arrived here in Calgary, Canada, and gearing up to start a 10-week seminar tour with our annual Gasshuku in Calgary, and visits to Aurora, Georgetown, Courtice, Quebec City, Miami, DC, Fredericton, Albany, Toronto, Newmarket and Vancouver [see full itinerary here http://www.koryu-uchinadi.com/irkrs-seminars/].

While the teaching content of the tour has already been established, non-KU stylists [i.e. learners/instructors from other styles not familiar with the nature of KU] who are planning on attending/participating at the gatherings might like to know the following about the distinctive adjunct practices being taught:

Most IRKRS-sanctioned KU seminars are based entirely upon my HAPV-Theory, corresponding 2-Person drills, Kata-based application practices and related historical supporting commentary.

HAPV-Theory
The acronym, “HAPV” stands for the, HABITUAL ACTS of PHYSICAL VIOLENCE. It is the systematized contextual premise, from which non-lethal empty-handed [one-against-one] self-defense practices can be applied to, in a domestic environment [in contrast to the rule-bound sporting arena, multiple/gang-related violent scenarios and or the “battlefield, etc.] See more here http://www.koryu-uchinadi.org/KU_HAPV.pdf

Pedagogical Abstract:
Individual HAPV are identified; its characteristics are described in detail and studied [so that the learner comes to understand its mechanics, the principles that make it work, why it’s dangerous and how it can be effectively negotiated] before being recreated in Futari-geiko/二人稽古 [i.e. 2-person drills ~ see here tinyurl.com/zymx2f3].

In 2-person drills, the attacker recreates the HAPV, with passive resistance [i.e. learning speed] while the defender rehearses its corresponding defensive theme. The exercise is continued on until the learner gains familiarity with the practice. This is to say that the learner can now progress to the next level after feeling comfortably proficient: If only in the reenactment process.

In stage number two, the attacker is required to gradually-to-exponentially increase the intensity of the attack until such time that each engagement is virtually equal to the brutality of a real scenario and any/all glitches in defender’s ability to effectively use the defensive template are resolved. In level number three line-drills [i.e. working back and forth with various other partners; e.g. big, small, young, old, male, female, fast, hard, compliant and non-compliant, etc.] are continually used in subsequent training in order to take the learner outside their normal comfort zone.

This is the stage of practice where much discovery is unveiled about, “Murphy’s Law” [Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong], the brutality of physical violence, and the constant variables that surround function and competency. As the learner arrives at a functional understanding the training experience is culminated mnemonically; i.e. saving the defensive theme [for the exampled HAPV] into a solo reenactment practice or ritualized template [Kata/型].

Kata
By linking together such ritualized templates into choreographed solo- routines, clearly something greater than the sum total of their individual parts becomes evident … in this light, it is my belief that, “Kata was never meant to teach anything but rather, culminate the lessons already imparted [in 2-person drills].” When the contextual premise is NOT present, or is misunderstood, and/or not supported by functional scenario-based 2-person drills [i.e. the “lost formula”] that Kata becomes something different from what it was originally meant to be.

When learned indiscriminately, this profound time capsule is reduced to little more than a misunderstood cultural recreation. How many times have you learned Kata but remained completely in the dark with regards to its original defensive application? In this regard, I liken Kata to learning a song in a foreign language; an exciting melody to the ears, but without understanding the words in which it is sung its meaning forever remains a mystery. In 1905, French Philosopher, Henri Poincare, wrote: “Science is built upon facts much in the same way that a house is constructed of stone, however, the indiscriminate collection of facts is no more a science than a pile of stones is a house.”

More on Kata http://irkrs.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/cooperating-with-infinite-by-patrick.html

The Template-based Teachings of Koryu Uchinadi

#1. Uchi/Uke-waza:
Giving & receiving percussive impact/blunt force trauma [29 techniques]

#2. Tegumi, Kotekitai, Kakie, Ude-Tanren & Muchimi-di
Negotiating the clinch & its variables: [36 techniques]

#3. Kansetsu/Tuite-waza
Joint manipulation, cavity seizing & limb entanglement: [72 techniques]

#4. Shime-waza
Chokes/strangles-air/blood deprivation: [36 techniques]

#5. Nage-waza
Balance displacement: [55 techniques]

#6. Ne-waza
Submission-based ground fighting: [72 techniques]

#7. Gyaku-waza
Escapes & counters: [36 techniques]

A link to the past is your bridge to the future: Koryu Uchinadi's unique system of application practices is a pathway between kata and kumite. Learned correctly, it can enhance the depth and value of any dojo curriculum without adversely affecting its cosmetic appearance or taking anything away from its cultural heritage.

KU can also be learned/imparted as a provocative alternative to conventional methods of physical fitness and stress management. Learning how to respond dispassionately to unwarranted aggression requires self-empowerment. Such training promotes an inner-calm and, where conflict exists, helps restore a natural balance to personal and professional relationships.

The first organization of its kind, the International Ryukyu Karate Research Society has been bringing together like-minded people and building bridges across styles since 1988.

Originally from Canada I migrated to Japan during the mid 1980’s, married and spent many years there before relocating to Oz in 1995. I’ve studied the fighting arts since childhood and decided early on, “To live my dream,” and I was able to successfully transform a passion into a profession and have never regretted taking that chance. Now, I’m dedicated to helping other like-minded enthusiasts better understand the traditional art of Karate and live, "their dream."
