Class Record: Ura gyaku + sui sha no kata & kenjutsu

May 8, 2007

Monday May 7th

Started with a few versions of the basic ura gyaku from a grab. Then another look at sui sha no kata from Kukishin Ryu in its proper format and then with some play off the first strike inside and out giving us different ways to destroy uke’s kamae.

We looked at the first three cuts from raiko no kata paying attention to grip and kamae and then applied some of the ideas in a dynamic two man drill seeing how kamae, suki (openings) and shielding could work. More of this on thursday – bring your bokken.
