Class Record: Suwari gata + Happo geri + Gyaku waza

October 17, 2008

Class: Thursday 16th Oct

Angling, blocking and punching were investigated in drills that showed up any flaws in basic structure in both ichimonji no kamae and some seated techniques. Some happo geri from the Ten Chi Jin was practiced too along with some applications. It was found that angling plays a huge part here as well as the ability to recover form a failed kick and flow from there. All of these ideas of structure and angling continued when I was asked to show a technique. We ended on a throw coming off of an onki-kudaki / omote gyaku full body lock.

Thought provoker: Tennis-ball on a string….. Ever try striking drillls with this set-up?
