Class Record: Gyokko ryu Koshijutsu + Ken/Keri Kudaki + Shinobizue

March 28, 2008

Class: Thursday March 27th

A fairly lively dynamic class with  elements of Gyokko ryu and Koto ryu coming out naturally under attacks that might be found outside of the usual Bujinkan basics. We looked at Ten Ryaku Uchu Gassho and Tenchi Inyo from Gyokko Ryu. Distance and space manipulation became important through the class and we saw how the Bujinkan idea of atacking the limbs might work.

We looked at ways of using the saya to control uke while being able to use the blade too. Various ways of using shuko also came out.

Thought provoker: We did “unusual” kicks/punches in this class. Do I really need to use quotes there? Why are they unusual?
