In Dec 2009 we had the pleasure of visiting Sasen Ryu Karate in Spain where we met and trained alongside their students and spent time working with Sensei Saskia Hickling, Sensei Davin Hickling and Sempai Jaden Hickling.
We were very impressed with the positive, friendly attitude of their international students whether sparring or learning new techniques. Sensei Saskia proved herself to be a calm and confident instructor and we wish her success in the steady growth of Sasen Ryu. We hope to put a link to their website shortly on the links page. In the meantime here are some photos from the trip. Check out their website by clicking their logo on the links page.
Prof Rick Clark Thursday 10th April 2008.
Here are some photos from the seminar on Thursday 10th April where we were pleased to welcome Prof Rick Clark back to our dojo. The seminar was as ever enjoyable and we all trained with different partners throughout the evening which meant we were able to see how techniques worked on students of different builds. As always Prof Rick was able to very clearly illustrate that the right technique applied to the right spot certainly does the job!
People moving in mysterious ways - you'd have to be there to get the whole picture.
Ouch! - but in a nice way.
Group line up - great to see so many new faces

Those of you who have trained with Rick Clark before will be familiar with his informal teaching methods which mean everyone gets to train with everyone else in a friendly atmosphere. His relaxed, friendly teaching methods belie levels of pain he is able to inflict with very little effort. His teaching is ideal for those interested in pressure points and bunkai. ........Sensie Albie on the receiving end!
