Hello War Dogs and my fellow martial artists!
If you are interested in bettering yourself as a martial artist and self-defense you NEED to be here for this!
Setting Traditional Arts in a modern context, Sensei John Titchen of DART and Practical Karate (John Titchen Practical Karate) will take what you know and show you EXACTLY how to apply. One of the most highly regarded individuals in his field if you are a Karate practitioner you will learn the TRUE applications of your art. If you have ever done a kata or form and thought "what exactly am I doing with this move?" then THIS is the seminar for you!
If you practice other systems, including JKD, John will give you insight into how Karate gained its reputation as a serious fighting art and help you frame what you know in the context of realistic scenario based training
A tremendous opportunity to train with a leading light in the applied Karate field!
But don't just take my word for it!
Karate is undergoing a revolution. Not a revolution that uproots the past, but instead one that returns to the past to water the roots of our tradition so that, after decades of stasis, it may grow and flourish. There is no doubt in my mind that John Titchen is one of the leading lights of this modern revolution. John is also someone who, to me, embodies the warrior spirit. Easygoing and thoughtful in nature, but who has a determination and love of what he does that is as infectious as it is inspirational...... his scenario training is excellent. John Titchen is the #1 guy when it comes to providing such training in a professional, realistic and ego free way."
Iain Abernethy, 6th Dan, World Combat Association.
"Dr Titchen's current work adds to the body of knowledge in the martial arts."
Rick Clark, 8th Dan, Chief Instructor AoDenkou Kai International.
"One of the most enjoyable days training ever, after many years of traditional tkd training this felt like the missing piece of the jigsaw! Well constructed with good feedback, a great leveller, physically tough and emotionally challenging but ultimately most enlightening....... must come back!"
Tom Coleman, 7th Dan, Tae Kwon Do Association of Great Britain.
“Sensei John delivered a remarkable seminar, leaving us with a deeper understanding of the 5 Shotokan Heian Kata. His knowledge on the subject is staggering, spanning some 25 years of training. His teaching method was structured and pleasant and kept all of us involved and interested throughout. It was a fantastic experience for all who took part. Truly an amazing experience for us all by a gentleman Sensei who not only shared with us openly an integrated system of Heian applications to make our Karate more complete, but also taught us invaluable life lessons with his example, attitude and indomitable spirit. Thank You Sensei John."
Sensei James Galea, 6th Dan, Malta Karate Federation.
"Sensei John was fantastic as an instructor and as a person. His teaching method was structured and pleasant and kept all of us involved and interested throughout. "
Sensei Jesmond Schembri, Malta Karate Federation.
"My second simday, another enjoyable and rewarding day. It reassured many aspects of my training under pressure. It also showed some weaknesses and areas to concentrate on. Again loads to take away. I highly recommend John Titchen's Simday, if you want to test what you think you do."
Graham Palmer, 5th Dan, Norwich Shotokan Karate Club.

Hello War Dogs!!
Well for those who had not already guessed, as of JULY 1st we are MOVING!
It has been an amazing two years since HAVOC formed, and the merge with Esteem was clearly a smart move because less than 9 months later we are moving to a NEW 2000 sq ft location that will be EXCLUSIVE to us!! What is even better is that it is only 3 minutes from the current location, so no big change there either!
The vision for what we offer was to create a genuine family - in our case a pack - where we grow together and each person brings unique strengths, insights and abilities. We do not leave anyone behind, nor do we set anyone on a pedestal or play a game of ego...we train for reality, we train to fight and most importantly we train for ourselves we can possibly be.Other dojos chase trophies and belts - that is fine, but it is not our way. Other places give away participation medals and belts are awarded as soon as the check clears.....again, not out way
We offer a prescription for your personal growth - we want YOU to be the best version of YOU possible!
I will be posting the address and some photos soon - in the meantime classes will carry on as usual at the current location
Your continued support and enthusiasm is truly appreciated and we are blessed to have you with us for this journey - now strap yourself in as HAVOC JKD once again sets the bar even higher!!
CRY HAVOC!!! AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR!!!
