Core-Combat and the BCA are proud to announce

a Seminar with The Legendary

Peter Consterdine

on Saturday 11th December!

Peter will be discussing Self Protection and the law and showing techniques and drills from his famous training days!

This will be very much hands on so bring plenty of water, gloves and pads!

The course will run from 1 – 4 and will be located in the village of Mawdesley in Lancashire

The price will be £25 for BCA members and £30 for none members

Peter is an 8th Dan in Karate, with over 46 years continuous training, and some 8 years on the Gt. Britain and England Karate squads. Trained to 1st dan in Wado Ryu and in 1969
was a founder of the Shukokai Karate Union (SKU), training with one of his strongest influences Shigeru Kimura Sensei.
Peter was one of very few British Internationals who fought Full Contact, taking a British title in the mid 70’s.

Renowned not only for his groundbreaking work on the ‘practical’ application of martial arts, but also for his skill and abilities in melding
traditional Karate with kickboxing,
and other combative and competitive arts. Peter’s belief is that whilst the practice of karate must be aesthetic, it must also have ‘content.‘ In other words it must have the priority of having ‘impactive effect‘ – it must work.
