I'm new here, but I suppose that's obvious, totally different way of doing things on this Forum but I'll get the hang of it.
I'm a Ashihara Karate Instructor, from Manchester UK, although I don't do most of the Japanese stuff in class as I'm English not Japanese. I don't teach karate for trophies, I teach it for the streets - anything which I find doesn't work I've binned it.
I hate musical kata, but love Bunkai application or whatever you wanna call it
I do not teach the typical step forward and punch leaving the hand out for 2 mins while the other hand is chambered whilst the defender does loads of pretty techniques in their own leisure
I'm not too keep on Go Kan Ryu, but love ITF TKD and Choi Kwang Do
I also practice Judo separately as I think this is the best grappling style that fits ME!
OSU!!! (I tend to do that a lot)

Greetings Black Tiger

We may be meeting in the flesh soon - I've been looking at your place as somewhere to train when I land back in Manc in a month or two (I'm a Withington lad).
