Wow!
Today was a big day for me. It's the first day I've actually been able to practice with the jo.
Our dojo has weapon classes on Sundays but due to conflicting schedules, I've never been able to attend since starting.
*hangs head in shame*
Fortunately, there has been a window for the past month or so and I've been taking advantage of it.
Over time with the regular classes we've practiced with bokken, tanto and shinai but the poor jo has been laying dormant, jealous.

I am amazed at how well the jo blends with open hand techniques. Ikkyo, nikkyo, sankyo and yonkyo - were all applied with seemingly less effort than open hand. Using these controls at a jo's distance feels strange...but almost liberating with the feeling that there is much more space to react and apply.
Now jo to jo is a different story. lol

I love this art.
