Dear Karate Nerd,
Are YOU ready for the world’s BEST Karate camp?
For the 5th year in a row, I’m organizing my annual world-class Karate training and friendship seminar.
***SOLD OUT!*** Pre-order the seminar videos instead.
This year’s camp takes place in Okinawa, Japan, Dec 26th-30th.
Yes – at the birthplace of Karate!
KNX18 is not a “regular” Karate seminar.
The goal is laser-focused…
Take YOUR Karate to the NEXT level!
I’ve been to hundreds of Karate camps in my life – all over the world. Sadly, only a handful of those were epic experiences.
Often I wasted both time and money on “experts” or champions who didn’t inspire me or teach anything special.
So believe me:
KNX18 will be unlike ANY other seminar you’ve EVER attended.
Your belt level, experience or style doesn’t matter. KNX18 is for everyone who wants to experience the roots of Karate in Okinawa…
…with likeminded Karate Nerds from around the world!
And remember to leave your belt at home, since everyone gets the famous pink belt.
This year’s KNX18 is special, because it takes place in Okinawa. You’ll learn Karate directly from authentic Okinawan masters. You will also experience cultural activities, historical moments and traditional Okinawan food and music between training sessions.
We’ll also practice on the beach… and do cool secret activities. 😉
This will be an AMAZING time!
Here are some KNX18 teachers:
Okinawa Goju-Ryu Kempo
Yoshio Kuba is a master of bunkai (practical kata applications) and holds the rare degree of 10th dan black belt.
He started learning Karate at the age of 15 and was a direct student of Seikichi Toguchi [1917-1998], who studied under Chojun Miyagi [1888-1953] and Seiko Higa [1898-1966]. Beside his many achievements in Okinawan Karate, Yoshio Kuba also holds a Master’s Degree in Pharmacy and runs a full time acupuncturist practice in Okinawa.
As the head of the Acupuncture Association in Japan, his deep knowledge of “kyusho” (vital points) is unparallelled in application.
Ryukyu Kingdom Sui-Di Bujutsu
Koiichi Nakasone holds the degree of 9th dan black belt, in a rare full-contact (bare knuckle) style of old-school Karate from the Ryukyu Kingdom era – before modern styles were invented.
In his youth, Koiichi Nakasone spent three months in USA, traveling from dojo to dojo to challenge people in full contact fights (known in Japanese as “dojo yaburi”) to test his skills. Echoing the words of the legendary Choki Motobu [1870-1944]: “There is nothing more harmful to the world than a martial art that doesn’t work in reality.”
Today, Koiichi Nakasone is best known for his wealth of knowledge about bare-knuckle fighting, sparring, self defense and joint manipulation skills.
The youngest Okinawan master at KNX18 is Kanji Uechi – but his experience is unique. As the direct descendant of Kanbun Uechi [1877-1948] (the founder of Uechi-ryu), Kanji Uechi started learning Karate at age 7 under the watchful eye of his grandfather Kanei Uechi [1911-1991] and his father Kanmei Uechi [1941-2015].
The Okinawan style of Uechi-ryu is known for it’s physical bone conditioning, deadly self-defense and unique Chinese animal techniques; including Tiger, Dragon and Crane.
Kanji Uechi is determined to pass on the original teaching of his family’s tradition.
The Karate Nerd
Last but not least… me! If you’re not a long-time KbJ reader, allow me to quickly introduce myself:
I’m “The Karate Nerd”, #1 Amazon best-selling author, founder of Seishin International, national team athlete, entrepreneur, social media ninja and carrot cake lover.
Growing up in my family’s dojo, the martial arts have always been my way of life. Today I teach, practice and work in my dojo in Sweden, but I constantly travel to teach, learn and share ideas with awesome people like you.
My passion is to help people use Karate as a vehicle for self-realization, through experience and education.
Are YOU excited?!
I can’t even sit still as I’m writing this!
If you want to discover Karate’s ancient roots and make new friends from around the world – this is for YOU!
The only requirement is that you’re 18+ years, have an OPEN MIND, can legally enter Japan and speak English.
