It seems that lately there is more focus on training shiho nage in our dojo. Of course different techniques are practised but it definitly feels like shiho nage season. It is vey nice to do even though it seems like a v difficult technique for a lot of the beginners.

Yesterday while training katadori men uchi dai sankyo my teacher showed us different atemi throughout the technique. I find it very frustrating to notice that my teacher probably has some kind of "sui getsu"-magnet in his fists. Even the softest atemi is spot on and I find my self grasping for air far to often.

Love hurts

In General Tamura sensei seminar Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Today I visited the seminar with Tamura Sensei. He is one of my favorite teachers. Especialy his focus on "RELAXING" is very nice. When he invites you to do the technique on him he is so relaxed that it is like running into a concrete wall or trying to push a locomotive.
His friendly smile and the little jokes he makes in french, so hardly any dutch person understands them, are always very nice. It is always a pleasure to have the experience to meet one of the favorite ukes of O Sensei.
I learned a lot today.
