Dear Karate Nerd,
Are you ready for the world’s #1 Karate camp?
For the 7th year in a row, I’m organizing my annual KNX seminar.
(Can’t attend? Get the videos.)
This year’s event takes place in Poland on July 31 – Aug 3.
There are only 43 spots available, because KNX is about learning and connecting on a deeper level.
The goal is laser focused:
Take YOUR Karate to the NEXT level!
I’ve been to hundreds of Karate camps across 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:
KNX20 will be unlike ANY other seminar you’ve EVER attended.
Your belt level, experience or style doesn’t matter. KNX is for everyone who wants a life-changing moment…
…with likeminded Karate Nerds from around the world.
In fact, you don’t even need to bring your belt – because everyone wears the famous pink belt.
KNX takes place in a new country every year. This year’s location is a stunning Japanese-style village in a national park in Poland, uniquely designed for martial arts retreats.
Remember, KNX20 is limited to ONLY 43 spots. If you want to attend, act fast!
Here are some of the teachers:
Sifu Martin Watts
Yongchun White Crane
As you probably know, I recently visited China to research the roots of Karate.
During my stay in Yongchun village (the birthplace of White Crane style), I noticed many photos of a blonde Westerner on the walls.
When I asked who it was, they told me his name was Martin Watts, and he came to China 27 years ago to study White Crane kung fu at the source.
Today, Sifu Watts has become the Western world’s #1 expert on ancestral White Crane fist…
…the primary kung fu style that influenced the evolution of Karate!
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the ancient Chinese art that provided the historical framework for Karate to be developed in Okinawa.
At KNX20, Sifu Watts will share his comparative analysis of Karate and White Crane with us. We will learn the original Yongchun version of Sanchin (Sanzhan) kata along with its classical 2-person exercises linking back to Bubishi – The Bible of Karate.
Pro MMA Fighter
Due to popular demand, my brother Oliver returns share his unique blend of Karate and MMA.
Me and Oliver spent our childhood growing up in our family’s martial arts centre. Together, we’ve traveled the world to train with the “best of the best” – ranging from grandmasters in Okinawa to UFC champions in America.
By combining his Karate skills as national team athlete, with insights from mentors like Lyoto Machida, GSP and the Gracie Brothers, Oliver has designed a system that combines the best elements of MMA and Karate.
The result is a comprehensive method that provides a simple pathway to fighting mastery.
At KNX20, Oliver will teach a clinch fighting masterclass, including the techniques and tactics that earned him multiple wins as professional MMA fighter (UFC, Bellator). Additionally, you’ll experience low-kick secrets to break down any opponent.
Dr. Lucio Maurino
European & World Champion
For the first time in history, I’m bringing back a previous teacher!
Dr. Lucio Maurino (Level IV Olympic Coach & Biomechanics Expert) was the very first KNX instructor in 2014.
Since then, the world of Karate and Sport Science has evolved drastically. For this reason, I’ve invited him back to share his new discoveries about motor control optimization and teaching / learning methodologies.
As Karate Nerds, it’s our duty to understand both the old and the new. Between tradition and science. Few people are more qualified than Lucio Maurino to lead us down this path.
That’s why I chose him as the first KNX teacher – seven editions ago!
As multiple-times European and World Champion, Dr. Maurino has unique insights that will be shared in both practical and theoretical lessons.
The Karate Nerd
Last but not least… me! If you’re not a long-time reader, allow me to briefly introduce myself:
I’m a lifelong Karate Nerd, national team athlete, founder of Seishin International, author of multiple books, a “Youtuber” and carrot cake lover.
My job is to elevate the collective consciousness of Karate as a whole, regardless of dogmatic limitations, organizations, belts or styles.
After all, what brings us together is far more important than what sets us apart!
That’s why I believe Karate is the ultimate vehicle for self-actualization.
At KNX20, I will teach classical Karate principles and applications that I discovered while living in Okinawa – the birthplace of Karate.
Are YOU excited?
There will also be an amazing “Secret Sensei” couple joining us!
If you want to experience a life-changing seminar and make new friends for life, KNX20 is the perfect opportunity for you.
The only requirement is that you’re 18+ years old, have an open mind, can travel on your own and speak English.
(Can’t attend? Get the videos.)
Your ticket includes accommodation from July 31 – Aug 3, breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, all practical classes and theory lectures (including secret activities), venue fees, Karate Nerd goodie bag, professional videos and photos, plus entry to the spa.
Note: Travel recommendations, locations and timetable will only be provided to participants (after the registration has closed).
Here’s a video from an earlier KNX:

We’ll take care of the rest for you. 😉
