Advanced Kata & Bunkai

Sowerby Bridge SKC

We are privileged to have Sensei Alex Cockx teaching at the club on Friday 28th February 2020 from 8:00pm – 9:30pm.

 

Alex started training in Karate from a young age and after watching a very high quality competition in Liverpool whilst he was still young he determined that he wanted to be just as good as the competitors he’d seen.  This drive has been with him ever since, constantly driving him to push himself further and be the best he can be.  This hard work and absolute dedication has paid off with Alex on both the England Kata and Kumite squads.  Alex has placed many times in both Kata and Kumite and regional, national and international level.  At just 20 years of age, Alex is one of our most promising Juniors with the ability to translate his lightning fast and precise Kata techniques into devastating Kumite techniques – a task that only few Karateka have demonstrated over the years.  Alex is currently a 2nd Dan in the KUGB, he cannot take his 3rd Dan until he is 21.

 

Some of the latest competition results for Alex are:

2019 Shotokan Cup (Black and Brown Belt National Competition)             

Kata Champion, Kumite 2nd Place

 

2019 Northern Regions (All grades Regional Competition)         

Kata Champion, Kumite Joint 3rd place

 

World Shotokan Karate Association Championships

Junior Team Kumite Champions, Part of Senior Kata team that narrowly missed being placed

 

Alex will be teaching advanced kata and bunkai, detailing the katas to the level expected at international standard and then showing how these kata are used in the real world of self defence.

 

The course is open to all Karateka at a cost of just £5, so why not come along to train with this inspirational and talented instructor – the KUGB at its best!
