articles

this page contains links to articles about points in karate, including but not limited to technique and philosophy. these are a mixture of short notes on specific topics that have arisen from students' questions, insights gained from experience of training and teaching, as well as lessons given to me that i think are useful.

there is no particular order to these, nor any firm system for when they get written. at present it is rather sparse; if you would like to suggest a topic to be covered or respond to an article, speak to me at training or alternatively email enquiries@kenmeikarate.org.
