The Jon Wicks (world chief Instructor) and Kenneth Corrigan (Canadian Chief Instructor) Clinic in Prince George
On October 18th and 19th the Nechako Karate Club hosted a clinic held by Sensei Jon Wicks and Sensei Kenneth Corrigan. The clinic was well attended with students travelling from Edmonton to attend.
We had an opportunity to have a children’s class in this clinic and it gave the children an opportunity cover basics and partner work with Jon’s approach to training with a touch of fun.
The adult class covered basics, free fighting exercises, kata and knife defense.
All the students enjoyed the clinic especially the kyu grades who found great enjoyment at watching the black belts being repeatedly corrected.
We had an opportunity to take Jon up flying in Warren’s Cessna 170 and experience a little bush flying, and for Jon to visit a working ranch. No, he did not get to wrangle the cows and brand them. We will have to work on that for next time.
