Class Record: Kihon Happo + Koku + Shuriken

February 12, 2008

Class: Monday 11th Feb

We spent some time looking at Ichimonji & Hicho no kata  – fine- tuning kamae, uke negashi and  tai-sabaki. We then explored koku from Gyokko ryu also, and various ways of messing with the attackers kick. A koto-ryu style counter was used along the way as well.

We then looked at shuriken – how they’re thrown, deflected using Totoku Hyoshi no kamae, and general principles of use – distancing, tactics etc. We finished with a little taijutsu using similar kamae.

Thought provoker:  Have you got your shuriken training space set up at home?
