Beginners Week 5

October 23, 2007

This week saw the practice of our usual rolls plus more dive rolls and an intro to sideways rolling. We looked at Kamae or “posture”  a bit more – using the walls, seeing how they appear during rolling and the kata and trying to get people to let their legs work underneath them for punching and moving. Get that lead foot facing the same way as your punch guys…

Then we practiced Ogoshi and Osote Nage throws wth different partners. We then went through the first 2 kata of the Kihon Happo and saw how distancing and angling is all important.

I hope that everyone takes a look at their syllabus and see’s how we’re moving through the items in it. Many of the things overlap.
