It’s the end of the 2014 Training Year, the end of the Autumn Term, and winter is coming! So, what happens to your martial arts tools & techniques when you’re wearing thicker, warmer, bulkier clothing? Can you use your clothing to your advantage? Can your opponent use it to overcome you? Come to the 2014 End-Of-Year Seminar, end the year in style, and find out for yourself!

What To Bring
To start the day please bring warm street clothing such as boots, jeans, jumpers, hooded tops and an overcoat. Hats, gloves and scarves will also be useful. Ladies, we don’t recommend heels, but if you’d like to give them a try, please bring them too. NOTE: We don’t expect clothing to be ruined, but we suggest you don’t bring your best stuff!
You should also bring your usual UKKFF uniform along to change into after the scenario. As usual please also bring your official membership books, training gear & weapons as for classes. Also bring a drink and a light lunch. A small selection of healthy snacks & drinks will be available to purchase at the venue, but we suggest you bring something more substantial too.
This event has been carefully planned to ensure that all members get the most out of their day. We welcome back Grandmaster Steve Tappin and Wayne Tappin from the Escrima Concepts System for the afternoon session, and as usual the UKKFF Head Instructor and developer of the Federation Wing Tsun System, Sifu Lee Paul Heron.
The morning will consist of the Street Clothing Scenario, plus assessments in Kung-Fu. Discover what changes when you move in bulky clothing. Grabbing and manipulating is different, you can’t always free yourself in the usual ways. Your clothing may protect you more, but it can also slow you down and restrict your options. However with a little thought it can also create opportunities too. We’ll teach you to change & adapt to the situation, and you’ll have a lot of fun!
The afternoon session is all about Escrima, plus assessments in EC and any Kung-Fu ones we didn’t manage to get around to in the morning. There will also be a short instructors-only Escrima session after the main seminar, but not too long as we’ve all got to get ready for the 2014 Xmas Bash later in the evening!
The price of this event is £35 per-person (as per our standard event pricing) which is amazing value for an entire day of tuition. Remember, we’ve got the heads of two integrated martial arts systems, the entire UKKFF instructor team, and a specially-planned scenario too. We can’t wait to see lots of people along for a wonderful day of fun and good training, plus hopefully see many of you pass tests and move up the ranks too.
As usual, please try to book your seminar place PLUS any assessments in advance, which saves us lots of admin time on the day.
