On thursday the first day of the Henry Kono sensei, Alan Ruddock sensei and Tom Verhoeven sensei seminar at our club started. Having to pick up Henry Kono sensei from the Airport I missed the first morning sesion by Alan Ruddock sensei. The first afternoon sesion was by Tom Verhoeven sensei and emphasised on a lot of technical skill. Hard work and lots of sweat. The second afternoon sesion was by Henry Kono sensei. First we had a focus on dropping your weight when being uke and after that we examined the movements that arise from the interaction of nage and uke. Henry Kono sensei's lessons focus on (very advanced) principles. It was a nice first day with lots of people.
