07– 09 June | New Castle, Northern Ireland

 Last weekend, Chief Instructor Alvin Guinanao travelled to the coastal area of New Castle, Northern Ireland. It’s a stunning place, overlooking the Mournes Mountain.

This is the setting where Alvin teaches the annual SBL Belfast Seminars, organised by SBL Instructor Danny McCavanagh.

The weekend focused on karambit (hooked blade) training, covering various techniques and against a standard knife.

BIG thanks to Danny for organising this trip and for his constant work in propagating SBL in Northern Ireland, as well as to his team for their hard work and dedication.
