Re: Kumijo vs Jo Awase, Kumitachi vs Ken Awase

HI LEON:

Well it's definitely not the Saito video you provided a link to--that is the 13 count jo kata of Saito, not an awase form since tori and uke are doing different movements. The other video you referred to doesn't do a jo awase form exactly like we were taught, but the principles are the same. As I said, what I know is a 6 count awase form taught to us by Kumagai, but there is no reason why there shouldn't be more forms that incorporate the other jo suburi the way the men in this video do. Thanks for posting the links.

Best,

R
