Class Record: Gyaku Waza + SFR Jutaijutsu + Happo Biken

October 10, 2008

Class: Thursday 9th Oct

The class began with some dynamic throws and locks based on grab/punch combos. Within them we saw how to interupt uke’s ukemi by  kicking, striking, changing their intended direction, throwing awkwardly etc Tori’s postion was such that a change in position could be taken if the need arises, say from a secondary attacker for example.

We then looked at some suwari gata form Shinden Fudo Ryu Jutaijutsu and played with various ways of messing with uke’s distance, using the feet adaptively, locking and holding. In the end we did some Happobiken tachi waza using the sword as a shield.

Thought provoker: Are you seminaring next weekend?
