In General Tanto Revisited Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #109 New 03-06-2004 08:46 AM
Last night's techniques:

[Empty hand]
- Katatedori Shihonage (Hanmi Handachi) to practice ukemi

[With tanto]
- Yokomenuchi Shihonage (Ura)
- Yokomenuchi Kokyuho (or was it Iriminage)?
- Tsuki Kotegaeshi

[Empty hand]
- Katatedori Kokyunage


I'm finding myself slowly becoming more and more aware of the position of the blade of the tanto in practice (particularly in keeping it away from myself). I know this needs a lot of work on my part in the area of extension --- I've been so hung up on wanting to do techniques properly down to the last minute detail that I'm forgetting to extend (a generally bad idea when it comes to tanto waza --- an opponent would just have to resist and I'd pretty well be one sliced and diced Jamie). I suppose my one consolation is in fact that I am still very much learning the form of technique --- I mean, I don't want to get ahead of myself --- but I still need to make a conscious effort to ensure that extension is there (along with all of the other fundamentals) as the foundation of all of my movements.
