"John Titchen has just set up his Practical Karate Facebook page! I really like the way John approaches things. It’s good stuff! I’ve also made some contributions to the related website (practicalkarate.co.uk) and if you like what I do, you are sure to like what John does. John Titchen and his scenario training is excellent. John would probably be, in the UK at least, the go to guy (for Scenario training)."
Iain Abernethy, 6th Dan.
"Dr Titchen's current work adds to the body of knowledge in the martial arts and in particular to those who study the Heian Kata"
Professor Rick Clark, 8th Dan.
"This course is a must do for any serious martial artist to park their ego and examine their skills and train under a true pressured environment."
Alan Murphy, 6th Dan Ju Jitsu, Simulation Day 4.
"I have been training in the martial arts for over twenty years and have been fortunate enough to have had some very good instructors. It is not often that I am truly impressed by another instructor, but John Titchen struck me as being on a different level to most. A true understanding of his subject matter, backed up by a very impressive CV. Since training with John and his students I am keen to expose my own students to his training.
For anyone interested in self defence I can heartily recommend attending a seminar run by John Titchen. Many think their own training will be enough should an attack happen. After being involved in two reality based session under the guidance of John Titchen, I would say that his approach will make you question your own. Safety is of upmost importance and the training environment very pleasant, the training however was tough and realistic. The analysis via video and discussion also added to the understanding."
Simon Sheridan, Senior Instructor UK Quanfa Academy.
"Having had John do a number of seminars for me I can say that he is thorough, considered and pragmatic in his approach, detailed in his explanations and also extremely knowledgeable on legal aspects of Self Defence training. I would recommend him to anyone."
Paul Mitchell, 3rd Dan Tae kwon Do, Nottingham.
"I have been a student on two or three Heian Flow seminars, very useful for my training and great fun! Any grade will benefit!"
Jo Alexander, 3rd Dan Shotokan Karate, St Albans.
"Dr. Titchen's Heian Flow System drills bring a useful, and lethal, application of the Heian Kata to real life situations. This system provides the insightful interpretation one expects from a thoughtful and long-term practitioner."
Mark C.E. Peterson PhD, AoDenkou Jitsu, Tae Kwon Do and Tai Chi Chuan Instructor, Wisconsin.
"Dr. Titchen has taken concepts and techniques from the Heian/Pinan Kata and molded them into flowing practice drills that are filled with excellent self-defense principles but are also fun to do."
Rev. Dave Carr, Seisan Ryu Instructor, Chicago.
"I'm impressed with the insight of the techniques; A new look at an old kata. I look forward to learning more of this system."
Brent Balfanz, Song Moo TKD and Ao Denkou Jitsu Instructor, Albertville.
"The kind of stuff that got me interested in karate in the first place."
