11am: Samurai Arts Part 1 (Demonstration by Guy McGowan)

Guy McGowan and Paul Gericke have a long history of martial arts practice. Since 2002, however, they have followed the more traditional Samurai Arts — predominantly Kenjutsu (Japanese swordsmanship) and Aikijujutsu (unarmed combat). At the Body & Mind Festival, Guy and Paul will demonstrate a few Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu kata (choreographed patterns of movement/techniques). In addition to the physical benefits of studying these practices in terms of self-defence applications, there are of course aspects of philosophy, self-discipline and personal growth to abundantly enhance one’s Way of Being.

Omote-no-kenjutsu (standard battlefield sword techniques); Gogyo-no-tachi (advanced techniques) and Battô-jutsu (sword draw techniques). NB: Subject to alterations in repertoire.

Shotokan Kokusai Karatedo South Africa (SKKSA) is on of South Africa’s leading karate organizations with 9 dojos across KZN, and one dojo in Saudi Arabia.
SKKSA teaches karatedo with an eye for technical perfection, both in the dojo and on the competition floor, underpinned by the Japanese principle of unification of shin (mind), gi (skill), and tai (body). A strong emphasis is placed on tradition karate, and this knowledge is then applied in innovative ways to competition-based training.
The organization also places focus on the family, and our student base includes several families (parents, grandparents, children) who are training together.
The demonstration will be done by students in varying stages of progress, from yellow belts to black belts, elbow strikes and open-hand techniques such as knife-hands, spear-hands, and palm-heel strikes.
