Techniques covered:

Swari Waza Kokyu ho
Kata-dori Nikyo
Kata-dori Kokyu-nage
Katate-dori Shiho-nage
Yoko-geri (Turning Kick) Kokyu-nage
Mae-geri (Front Kick) Kokyu-nage

Focus was on turning and entering, or just simply stated - Irimi.
Also, it was wonderful again training in the cold weather, and although only two students showed up, it was worth it.

Last night it was 32 degrees. ONLY TWO people showed up to the dojo. WOW!

Well, I have to admit, it was a great class. We actually got to train with numb toes.

The focus last night was on kokyu. Kokyu movement into Ikkyo, Nikyo and Sankyo.

The mind needs to draw the attack into the center. The attack needs to be sincere, especially when it's cold. We need to learn to direct that attack.

This blog is mostly intended for the ShinKiKan student. Here I will try to post a journal of what was covered in class and some of the points to think about.
