“How does the locks work if I do not have a partner?”
No Partner. No Problem.
There is no substitution for training with another human being. However, it doesn’t matter how good you think you are against another person, if you’ve never taken the time to remove your partner from the equation and dissect the mechanics and movements of each individual technique, you have tons of room for improvement!  At home you will be taught step by step on how to practice the technique without a partner. You will be taught to use your home furniture such as e.g. a chair for props/training aids no punch bag or elaborated apparatus is required.
The old masters from Okinawa Japan supplement their training at home, and they taught us the world is your dojo.
Now, if you have a partner, that’s totally fine, but the fact that all the classes can be completed without a partner is what makes this opportunity so unique. 
By every solo class, that you are training 80% of the work is on each technique, so that when a partner is reintroduced all that is left are the 20% adjustments

Private Zoom Classes
If  your schedule prevents you from joining our live sessions, you might consider opting for Zoom private classes instead. Private classes can be arranged for any time (please ensure you adjust your time to Japan time) and are taught by the head instructor Sensei Steve Joseph.
You can work solo, or with a partner, and Sensei instruct you through all the techniques based on the Syllabus or a self defence topic of your choice. Be it Weapons Defence, Strikes, conditioning etc. 
Let us know and we can make arrangements for you. 
Please note that private lessons fees are applicable per person.
Discount will be offered to 3 or more members training in a single private lesson class.
