Class: Embu practice + Happobiken

August 12, 2008

Class: Monday 12th August

The Embu practice session was the usual examination of performance and zanshin that we’ve been doing recently. Like Alex said we should be doing this until it’s second nature.

After tea we practiced some Kukishin Happo Biken with a look at a technique that had a lot of kamae, ukemi, and kiri in it and various strategies for the swordman to polish. Very much a mini-chess game with all moves having their inherent openings.

Thought provoker: What kihon were in the kenjutsu waza we studied last night?
