After tonight's Bokken practice (the usual kata and building on exchanges), we worked on a variety of body movements from mune-tsuki, shomen-tsuki and katadori, respectively.

Later on, we all took turns filing through a six-person line (!) and being attacked in these three ways in quick succession, which was quite fun (when things ran smoothly). Unfortunately, it was a rather convoluted way of running through a line and as a result tended to be confusing to some folks at times --- particularly in having to switch roles so often. This said, I'm surprised that I was able to keep up as well as I did.

When things worked out, however, it was really nice --- I liked the flow of going from moving in response to one attack to another. It was a good opportunity to apply what we were practicing, as well as reflexes and timing, not to mention the closest we've come to doing Randori in some time. I swear, I'm suffering Randori withdrawal, big time.

On a side note, I really like the new layout here! It's nice to be able to view more on a page at a glance, especially with the main journals page.
