In this episode, I interview karate expert Iain Abernethy. He is one of the most popular instructors today and travels the world teaching seminars. He is most known for his approach to “bunkai”, which are the applications of the movements in kata. We discuss this and much more during the interview.
After we stopped recording, Iain proposed a project we could both work on and I said yes. It’ll take a bit of time, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. We’ll let you know when it’s ready.
