Karate History - the Early 19th Century In the first part of the 19th century life in the Ryukyu Kingdom continued pretty much as it had done for the previous 2 centuries. Presumably this was reflected as much in martial art practice as it was in other aspects of Okinawan culture. Change was coming, but that would not be until the middle of the century. For now, life carried on as normal. There is little English language material to give us an idea of life (and martial arts) in this period, but one interesting event (for us) occurred in 1812. That was a visit to the Ryukyu Kingdom by the British Navy. One of the ships' Captains, Basil Hall, documented the visit in his 'Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Corea and the Great Loochoo Island'. 'Loochoo' was the closest rendering the English sailors could get to the local pronunciation of Ryukyu. Hall's account gives us a unique, if limited, insight into life in the kingdom at that time. There are no specific martial references but I find of particular interest the lengths to which the Ryukyu officials went in order to limit and control the visit the sailors' interactions with the locals and access to the royal court. The picture, taken from Hall's book, shows a couple of Ryukyu shizoku (the one on the left is a monk). One important lesson that I learnt from my sensei was to be mindful of the cultural context in which a martial art develops. Look at how these men are dressed - their footwear, the topknot (not the monk), their large-sleeved flowing robes. These must all have contributed to how they prepared to meet violence. Whatever techniques they choose to use would need to work in their everyday clothes. Perhaps they might even try to use their clothes to their advantage in some way? ….. #karate #karatelife #karatejutsu #karatedo #okinawankarate #selfdefence #selfdefense #shorinryu #leeds #headingley #headingleykarate #martialarts #shotokan #kirkstall #shotokankarate #loveleeds #leedslife #discoverleeds #hydeparkleeds #iloveleeds #leedsuni #gkrkarate #leedsmet #shukokai #dojang #shitoryu #wadoryu #meanwood #bradford #bunkai

Jill is a community nurse in her 50‘s, size 16 with an apple body shape, she needed an outfit for a Yorkshire wedding in a brewery. I sensed that Jill wasn’t feeling confident... . . . . The most important thing to Jill was that she felt comfortable in her outfit, it reflected her personality and I loved that she chose not to conform to what’s expected 😊 Being both comfortable and confident is so, so, so important 👌 . . . A tunic style top was perfect and because it was black and white we popped a mustard scarf into the mix for a pop of colour. A funky pair of earrings reflected Jill’s fun side 💃 High heels were a no go but a mid heel, sassy suede ankle boot fit the brief perfectly 👌 . . . Jill... I feel that you are a strong and inspirational woman for so many reasons!! 🙏🙌🙏 Staying true to yourself is perfect 😍 Your body language changed the moment you put on this outfit, you looked bouncy, confident and your eyes sparkled . . . Tunic - Max Studio Boots - LK Bennett Earrings - Toolally Scarf - John Lewis @johnlewisandpartners Leeds . . . . As Jill was leaving with her purchases, she asked if she could hug me and said ‘thank you’ 😊 She said that I’d made her feel a ‘spring in her step’ and that she’d had a wonderful time 🙏🏻 That’s what I feel my job is about... Empowering women. Bringing out the best in real women and highlighting their best bits. I love helping women and having fun at the same time 🙏🏻💃🙏🏻 . . . . Thank you Jill for making my day and I hope you have an amazing time at the wedding xx . . . #personalstylist #leeds #weddingoutfit #fashion #maxstudio #johnlewisleeds #whattowear #leedslife #WeArePartners #PersonalStylist #JohnLewisandPartners #toolally #maxstudio #lkbennett #johnlewisbeauty #johnlewis #leedsshopping #insta #instastyle #womenempowerment #womensfashion #ootd #styleblogger #wedding #monday #girltribe at John Lewis Leeds

Thought I'd wait until my weekend was over to post these. Literally took one photo, maybe too busy taken in the event 🙈 But absolutely honoured and blessed to be best man for such a top lad @sower_pants, to watch him marry his best friend and beautiful wife @nicolacullen (Sowerbutts) 🤔. You guys teach me so much and inspire me every day, you are the most genuine and loving people I have ever met and you are my ultimate favour couple ever!!! 😬 I've picked out (probably the least typical pictures) but the ones that made me smile the most, as this is all I do when I'm with you two ✌️ Hope the little honey moon is boss! I love you guys more than you know!!! Thankyou for letting me be part of your big day ❤️❤️❤️ #leeds #leedslife #wedding #otleychevin #nandy #beautiful #bestcouple #blessed #love #respect #dedication #bestman #nofighting #ashootoutisashootout #PeakyBlinders #tomhardy at Leeds

Omg I’m never going to be thin!!! 🙈🙈🙈 #foodporn 😋😍😋 Cottage pie with cauliflower cheese topping 😋😋😋 . . . In my tummy, yummy 😋 yummy 😋 @waitroseandpartners 😍 . . . Serves: 4 - 6 . . . Ingredients 👩‍🍳 🥘 😋 . . . 1 onion, roughly chopped 1 large carrot, roughly chopped 2 tsp rosemary leaves 2 tbsp olive oil 400g Waitrose Hereford Mince Beef 150g red split lentils 2 tbsp tomato purée 1 Oxo Rich Beef With Onion & Rosemary Stock Pot 600ml boiling water 500g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, peeled and cut into large chunks 1 medium cauliflower, cut into florets 100ml crème fraîche 100g mature Cheddar cheese, grated . . . Method . . . 1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Place the onion, carrot and rosemary in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the mixture and gently cook for 6 minutes, until softened but not coloured. . . . 2. Add the mince beef and mix with the vegetables, cooking for 2 minutes until browned and breaking up with a wooden spoon. Add the red lentils and tomato purée and cook for 1 minute. Mix together the stockpot and water and stir into the pan. Cook gently for 20 minutes without a lid, until the lentils are tender. . . . 3. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes then add the cauliflower and cook for a further 7 minutes until the potatoes and cauliflower are very soft when pierced with a knife. Drain well and return to the pan with the crème fraîche, cheese and a pinch of salt and mash together until you have a creamy yet coarse mash. . . . . 4. Spoon the beef and lentil mix into a 35x25cm ovenproof dish then spoon the mash on top leaving it quite rough for a crispy crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden, crusty and bubbling. . . . Cook’s tip 😋😋😋 As an alternative, try using creamy cannellini beans or even haricot beans to make the mash . . . . #foodie #waitrose #waitrosemeanwood #instagood #instafood #recipe #leedslife #leeds #yorkshirefood #WeArePartners #Create #bakeoff #cottagepie #waitrosefood #lovinleeds #style #styleblogger #comfortfood #recipeoftheday at Leeds

‪The paint is peeling, now,‬ ‪When the chips are down, now,‬ ‪You gotta lose all feeling, now,‬ ‪Your head goes round & round. 🎶‬ - Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. In the 6 years I’ve been carving a career as a magician the chips haven’t always been up. This post comes from a conversation recently where I found out a long standing friend of mine wasn’t very supportive when talking about my work. In fact, he tried to discredit my achievements. It makes sense now why he’s never interacted with or shared anything I post. The chips may be up or the chips may be down, but I’ll never be a cunt like that guy. - 📸 @imrankhan.co.uk at Slocken Leeds

Autumn is such a great season for baked fruit desserts. My parents called by a few days ago and brought with them a bag full of bramley apples. Perfect for apple crumble. I make my crumble mix gluten free by switching the flour for buckwheat flour. The addition of oats and ground almonds reduces the amount of sugar needed whilst keeping that familiar sweet taste. 🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏 #crumble #bake #baking #glutenfree #glutenfreebaking #fruit #tasty #simple #nutrition #health #healthy #healthyeating #fit #fitness #protein #food #foodie #foodpics #instagood #photooftheday #photoeveryday #leeds #igersleeds #leedslife

@youfituk

Playing around with some leg finishers. 1️⃣📽Prisoner style reverse lunge with band. Harder than it looks. Go high rep. For time (60 seconds or more) or high reps 15+ each leg. 2️⃣📽 banded squat march. Again go for time. A good alternative if you don’t have a sled to drag. 🔥🔥🔥. Mix up your leg sessions with one or both of them. Or superset them! 🤮. Tips : sit low on both exercises to load the quads and find a band that suits your body weight. #quads #legs #legday #legfinisher #dontskiplegday #legworkout #lowerbodyworkout #legburn #finisher #workoutfinisher #workouttime #gymideas #workoutideas #personaltrainerleeds #leedspt #leedsgym #gymleeds #legexercises #fitfam #fitness #ukfitfam #ukfitness #fitnessjourney #leeds #leedslife at YouFitUK
