Hell On Legs - Grappling Seminar!

Posted by Jay on March 18, 2017 at 10:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Myself and my dear friend & brother Kev Davey -("Paddy Quinn" from TV show "Hell on Wheels") are teaching a joint martial arts seminar for April 29th 

It'll take place at the Havoc/Esteem Martial Arts studio in the southeast of Calgary, it'll be 4 to 5 hours duration (with a break for lunch, obviously), and it'll be open to anyone - regardless of their ability or experience - from total novices to advanced students.

What will you learn? Well let's put it this way - between us we have over 70 years experience. Kev's specialty is MMA-oriented Jujitsu - or as some call it, Kev-jitsu - andyou all know my pedigree :)

So in short - hopefully you'll learn lots!

But it's not just about the training - it's also about like-minded people coming together, making connections, and training as one

The cost is $50 in advance or $60 on the door and will be a TON of fun!

As the founder of HAVOC JKD I am absolutely meticulous- some would say "obsessed: - with having techniques that have been tested and proven in real encounters. I leave nothing to theory or chance. This approach is even more important when it comes to selecting my instructors. It is my honour and privilege to have Sifu Simon Sheridan represent HAVOC in the UK.

He is a consummate professional and a patient instructor who has taught every level from raw beginners to competitive fighters and they all walk away with increased knowledge.

I heartily endorse him and his training and personally guarantee that he WILL help you reach your own potential

Cry HAVOC!!! And let slip the Dogs of War!

Blessed Yule!

HAVOC JKD is VERY proud to present Sensei John Titchen Practical Karate Seminar

Posted by Jay on July 5, 2016 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

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.
