Class Record: Dakentaijutsu + Hanbo + Spear

August 17, 2007

Class: Thursday August 16th

We applied the hanbo to our Kukishin Ryu Dakentaijtsu inviting the uke to fall into a place where strikes, locks and holds appeared naturally.

After tea we studied the Hicho Ho kata from Kukishin Sojutsu and did two versions. This kata adds a jump to the sideways striking method in the previous yari kata. Everyone demo’d  this and we used some actual “cutlery” to feel the difference between padded/wood and metal. 

Thought provoker:

How are the principles in Sojutsu Hicho Ho  used in empty handed techniques?
