MKG UK Seminar with Brendan Westwood

Brendan Westwood MKG UK

Following on from last year’s successful seminar with have the pleasure of hosting Guro Brendan Westwood the UK & European Director of the Minnesota Kali Group for another seminar around the MKG arts. The session last year focussed around stick and knife training, hubad (a sensitivity drill to feel pressure from a partner or opponent to manipulate them into positions where they are off balance and easy to hit) and impact work on the focus mitts. Was a great session and sure this year’s session will be just as fun!

In the first instance please book and confirm your place with Andy prior to sending payment, as places will be limited for this event. Contact details for Andy are tel: 07929989720 or e-mail

Date: Sunday 3rd December at 12:00–16:00

Location: Team Black Belt Dojo, Lode Lane, Solihull, B92 8NU
