Karate Cafe roadshow 2019

The Karate Cafe Road Show kicks off early this year! We’re roaming around Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia! If your dojo wants a class on kihon concepts, kata application or system alignment (or just wanna train), message me! Taking off end of May and heading east for June & July.

UPDATE: Invitations are coming in but we still have seminar opportunities.

Here’s a link to Paul’s seminars page. If you’d like to host a local seminar or just have a class on bunkai, tuite, kobudo or just karate concepts let him know!

We’re camping along the way so I’ll post when we stop for a few days and try and visit whatever is around.

I’d love to feature your dojo on the show and remind all the listeners that we’re all one big family in pajamas…and other tactically questionable attire.

Episode 137 – What are we fighting for…?

A philosophical talk on training. Why we do that voodoo we do and Dan gets deep. We also talk about our new outlet and how you guys can help us land a big fish.

We also talk about:

YouTube and the documentary series, Sensei: Masters of Okinawan Karate

Kobudo stuff and Iain Abernethy (Congratulations on the new baby!)

Here’s a clip of Paul talking about the benefits of kobudo

Paul’s upcoming road trip ( schedule a session here ) and he’s looking to train!
