Class Record: Sanshin, Kodachi, Genseki Nagae, and Nawa Waza

September 24, 2007

Class: Saturday 22nd.

We looked at Genseki Nage up close done in a way thought by Shihan Peter King a few years ago that caused uke to be wound up and locked before the throw even begins.

Earlier Sanshin No Kata basics led us to do some henka with the kodachi… drawing and cutting …and then retention techniques and using the sheath This led to, playfull and free technique that inspired me to grab the rope and use that in the same way, not forgetting that we can still punch and strike when needed.

Thought provoker: how do you draw the kodachi when the sheath is not tied in?
