Re: Re: 31 jo kata

You can best learn the 31 jo kata via learning the 20 jo suburi.
Noted... i was trying to do the other way round.

You don't end up with your left hand on top. From 5-11, your hands are in ken kamae.
Oh... really? Number 9 in the posted jo kata page says "you begin with L foot forward, L hand on top". Would that be a mistake, or a stylistic difference? I'll try seeing if that feels natural enough. Or maybe i'll just adopt the Fudebakudo-ryu techniques, probably way more compatible with my current state of Aikido anyway.

Thanks for the help.
