Class Record: Gyokko/Koto Ryu + Kyoketsu

February 4, 2008

Class Record: Sat 2nd Feb

We did the Sanshin with some ideas from Togakure Ryu tai sabaki included. We then looked at gyokko and koto ryu shoden gata as a basis for exploring aspects of gyaku waza, closing the space, kicks, strikes and hidden weapons.

After tea we studied some of the Togakure happo biken looked at during the week with Alex and then some some use of the shuriken with the sword. At the end we did striking drills with the kyoketsu and practiced one of our looping methods.
