Iain Abernethy – Bunkai

To start up a blog like this, you can’t get more authoritative then Iain Abernethy.  Iain specialises in grappling bunkai.  Although he is primarily a Wado Ryu Karate stylist, he teaches in a way that it can translate to any style and he takes this into account when teaching.

Iain is a 5th Dan with both the British Combat Association (one of the world’s leading groups for close-quarter combat, self-protection and practical martial arts) and Karate England (the official governing body for Karate in England).  He is in demand all over the World and has a good reputation for being open, approachable and extremely informative.

Here are a few Youtube clips.

To find out more about Iain, visit his website at www.IainAbernethy.com

Iain has written a number of books and DVDs on the subject of bunkai.  In fact this blog takes its name from his book and DVD series entitled “Bunkai Jutsu”; which I can thoroughly recommend.  Iain also regular writes articles for the top martial arts magazines.
